School Break Camp FAQs

Break camps happen when school is not in session throughout the school year. We offer four break camps - Fall Break, Winter Break, Rodeo Break, and Spring Break. Typically due to the majority of our camp population, we go off of the TUSD school schedule. It is a mini-camp in which children get to participate in all their favorite summer camp activities but with fewer kids. Interested in a summer camp but not sure if your child will enjoy camp? Our break camps are a great time to try it out before the summer starts! 

You are able to register for the whole week of camp or pick and choose with a daily rate. 

There are a few ways you can enroll your child in Camp...

  • Register through our online portal. Attached is a helpful "how to" guide on the first steps in getting set up with "A" Camp
  • Register in person at the front desk of UA Campus Recreation
  • Contact Erin Tinker at or 520-621-6891 to assist with registration needs 

Structured camp hours are from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM, however we provide drop-off as early as 7:30 AM and pick-up as late as 5:30 PM at no additional cost to you!

We do not provide lunch, please pack a lunch that doesn't require refrigeration or microwaving. “A” Camp does however provide an AM and PM snack for each camper. If your child(ren) has food allergies feel free to pack your own snacks for the camp day.

Pick-up and Drop-off is through the Outdoor Recreation Center . This is located at the back of the recreation center near 7th and Vine Ave. Camp hours are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Drop-off starts at 7:30 am to 9:00 am. Pick-up starts at 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm. Extended care is offered at no extra charge. If you need to pick-up your child early, please go to the camp office located in Outdoor Recreation.

Please make sure your child brings a lunch, water bottle, and closed toe shoes for active games.

During the warmer months we have Free Swim in our schedule for all campers, please bring bathing suit and towel as well as sunscreen (sandals for pool deck). 

We require that each child has a completed emergency form, medical consent form (If medication is needed), and photo/sunscreen/field trip release form. See the attached paperwork.

Unfortunately, parking can be slightly tricky during the school year. 

“A” Camp provides 3 courtesy parking spots located in the Outdoor Rec parking lot during camp hours. There is metered parking along 7th st as well as parking throughout the neighborhood behind Campus Recreation. Meters and UA designated parking lots are free before 8:00 am and free after 5:00 pm. 

At “A” Camp we understand that schedules can change.  In the event that you are unable to attend camp, a request must be made in writing to Allison Brown or Erin Tinker one week prior to the start date of the registered camp. A refund may not be given after registered camp start date. Transfer of deposits and balances can be requested between different weeks if space allows.
