Base Camp

Our primary concern is the health and well-being of our campers, staff, and their families. With this in mind, we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel the in-person portion of Sun Devil Kids’ Camp for the 2021 summer. If you have any questions, please contact Danny Gaytan at
