About IDEAS’ Sports & Games Camp
IDEAS’ Sports & Games Camp offers action-packed, continual fun, and lastly skills, drills and friendly sports competition. Campers will want to arrive early each day to this camp program.
Sports & Games Camp is for the camper who loves athletics, but doesn’t want to focus on one particular sport in a one-week period. Combining a mix of team sports with daily free swim, a rock-climbing wall, the Sports and Games Olympics, and a new and exciting special event each week. Our highly organized program promotes the development of movement, play, teamwork, sportsmanship, self-confidence, and most of all, fun.
Each week concludes with exciting the IDEAS Awards Ceremony, where all teams are recognized, based off of the points earned for teamwork, organization, spirit, hustle, and skills/game competition. Effort over Results is the philosophy upon which IDEAS’ Camps was built. Fair play, equal playing time and positive athletic coaching environment.
Some examples of IDEAS’ Sports & Games theme-weeks include: Punt-Pass-Kick, Minutes-to-Win-It, Spike It/Blitz It, World Cup Soccer, and more.
Each week offers boys and girls a new camp-theme, providing them with interactions, experiences and stories which will become the focus of attention during both the ride home and at the dinner table. Each attending camper receives a camp t-shirt (one per summer).
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the heat of the summer campers will spend as much time indoors or in the shade as possible throughout the week. This includes the time we spend on the Rock Wall and more. Safety is our #1 priority at all times. Misting fans and plenty of water breaks are abundant at Sports and Games Camp while we preach the importance of sunscreen and hydration all week long.

“I know how hard it is for the older kids to attend camp. For full transparency, my 7th grader really did not want to go to our camp this morning. However, he came home today so excited that two of his friends were in his group AND that he got to learn a new type of coding language. Here I was nervous all day and he totally surprised me when I picked him up. Just wanted to let you know since I most likely sounded the “false alarm” earlier today when we spoke in the morning. Here’s to a great rest of the week”
“Spectacular camp. Amazing. Cinthia and all of her friends attended camp last week (they were the Heroic Stemsters team) and each had an absolute blast. The camp had quite an impression on all of them since they could not stop talking about the fitness games, computer games, and counselor games they played and participated in. The IDEAS counselors provided the confidence and builds the self-esteem these girls need to feel comfortable in a mostly all boys program. I can assure you that more and more girls will be attending your camp in the future since I am now your biggest fan. Thanks again.”
“Your free extended care was really helpful to Dorothy and me this past summer. I cannot thank you enough for adding that as a free option. Usually, I cannot afford to send my older daughter to this high level of a camp because of the cost to attend these programs in the Scottsdale area. But since you include all of the free options, my husband and I can now send D to multiple weeks of your camp. Thank you for your generosity and making it affordable for all to attend.”
