See What Our Parents Say About Us

I’ve been sending both of my kids to Cactus Day Camp for several years now. They both absolutely love it!!! I don’t know any other camp in the Scottsdale area that offers so many activities...swimming, rock climbing, archery, arts and crafts, water-play activities, games, games and more games. The staff have always been very friendly and accommodating. I’ve never had any complaints after all the years. I also don’t ever have to worry about my kids getting too much sun or not keeping up with their fluids during the hot summer months. A+ Camp!!!!!

This camp is awesome!!!! My son just loves everything about it. He is bummed that summer is just about over and camp is ending. All the staff is great, you can tell they really love what they do, love working with kiddos of all ages and thrive to make it a great experience for all.

Cactus Day Camp has real energy & soul. Karyn has put together a spectacular program with a great balance of indoor and outdoor activities. My kids, who will spend their 4th summer at Cactus, come home happy and exhausted from running around, doing archery, swimming, water play and rock climbing. At Cactus Day Camp, there's a real sense of belonging and loyalty where campers want to return as Counselor Aides and Counselors. Cactus Day Camp is an absolutely unbelievable experience for kids! Run, don’t walk, to sign your kids up!

Kadence and Jakob LOVED their first year at camp. They already can't wait for next summer and have said multiple times this evening how sad they are that camp is over. Thank you Karyn and all the amazing counselors!!!!
