Outdoor Adventure Summer Camp

Outdoor Adventure Summer Camp - Registration is OPEN NOW!

The Outdoor Adventure Summer Day Camp is back for its 9th year! This year we will offer seven sessions, each with its own engaging theme. Register your camper(s) for a single week, or multiple weeks that pique their interest. Fieldtrips will bring kids to various locations through Northern Arizona to explore and get outside. Fieldtrips and activities may include Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course, the Arboretum, Lowell Observatory, Museum of Northern Arizona, Flag-Tag Laser Tag, Indoor Rock Climbing, Blacksmithing, the Flagstaff Aquaplex, and Archery. Camp runs from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday. Click the link below to view each session and register.

New This Year! - Teen Mini Camp

This year, for the first time ever we are offering a 3-day Teen Mini Camp. The Teen Mini Camp will be offered during the 5th week of camp. This session runs from Wednesday, July 5th through Friday, July 7th and is open to youth 12 to 15 years of age. There is no camp on Monday or Tuesday.

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for teens to get outside, explore, and socialize. Campers will enjoy spending time at a variety of county parks, making friends with other campers, and going on exciting field trips. Field trips include top rope rock climbing at the Flagstaff Climbing Gym, learning to shoot archery at Fort Tuthill County Park, blacksmithing, and hiking at Rogers Lake County Natural Area (exact activities may change). 

Remember camp registration historically fills fast!

Campers should bring:

  • Water in a reusable water bottle (we have large portable bottle refilling stations to keep hydrated)
  • Lunch and snack (we do many high-energy activities during the day, so we encourage healthy snacks for campers, so they have the energy to keep up). 
  • Closed toed shoes (even if we have a field trip that might require sandals, it’s important to have the closed toed shoes for group games and archery). 
  • Sunscreen and/or hat 
  • Appropriate clothing for the day (in Monsoon Season please make sure your child has a poncho or raincoat, we may get caught in a few rainstorms!)
  • Backpack that they can carry it all in! We will be going on many short hikes and adventures where your child will want to carry their water, lunch and snack and anything else they may need for the day. 

Important Policies

  • Camper Drop-off/Pickup 
  • Camp drop-off is at 9:00 AM and parents must pick up their children by 4:00 PM.
  • Electronics Policy
  • Campers are welcome to bring their phone, iPod or digital camera, but please be aware that we may be doing activities where these expensive electronics could be damaged. Apart from taking photos, campers will not be able to use their electronics for most of the day. 
  • If you ever need to contact your child during the day you can call the camp phone (the number will be provided to parents before camp starts). If we do not answer, please leave a voicemail and we will call you back as soon as we can.

Behavior Policy

  • Campers will go over the rules with staff every Monday and agree on the principles of how to conduct themselves. The following will occur if rules are broken:
  • Camper will be redirected away from the inappropriate behavior.
  • Camper will have a “cool down” period. Prior to returning to the group, Camp and Staff will discuss the situation, plan for how to handle it differently, and decide on additional consequences if necessary.
  • Parents will be informed of any incidents regarding Camper behavior.
  • Extreme inappropriate behavior, such as fighting, may lead to suspension or expulsion.
