"A" Camp 2017 is here!

Campus Recreation Youth Programs will continue their decades-long tradition of providing excellent care for children ages 5-11 as well as engaging opportunities for Counselors in Training (CITs) ages 12-15. Over the course of 10 weeks (May 30- August 4), campers will have the opportunity to participate in games and activities, explore the UA campus and learn from guest speakers, as we have always done. 

This summer we are continuing our popular Voyager Program, an optional aspect of camp available at minimal additional costs. Voyager Programs consist of swim lessons, allowing parents to sign their children up for instruction during camp hours, as well as chaperoned trips to various local attractions. Our trained counselors will accompany groups of children to places like the Reid Park Zoo, Rocks N Ropes, Pima Air & Space Museum, Pump it Up, Color Me Mine and more!
