Day Campers


Day Campers will have access to Tooker House Dining Hall, an on-campus dining hall, for lunches with the Overnight Campers.

Please make sure your Day Camper has had breakfast before arriving to camp each day. In addition, we encourage Day Campers to come to camp with snacks and a reusable water bottle to access throughout the day!

Check-in & Check-out

For Sessions 1 to 3, Day Campers will check-in at the lobby of Manzanita Hall for the first day of camp. Check-in for all other mornings of camp will be at Tooker House Dining Hall. Check-out for every day of camp will be in the lobby of the Mona Plummer Aquatic Complex.

For Session 4, check-in and check-out will be at the Mona Plummer Aquatic Complex for each day of camp. 

Please make sure you are prompt for check-in and check-out each day.  

Day Campers have two options for check-in and check-out. 

     1. Parent or legal guardian check-in and check-out

  • A parent or legal guardian is responsible for check-in and check-out every day of camp.

     2. Designation of check-in and/or check-out

  • A parent or legal guardian may designate someone else to check-in and check-out the camper every day of camp.

All travel logistic details will be requested and documented on each camper’s transportation forms, which will be distributed closer to the camp dates. 

Parents, Guardians & Family Visits

Parents, guardians, and families are invited to watch the swim sessions in the stands. Please be mindful that the spectator area of the pool is uncovered. Make sure to bring your hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen!  

Safety in the Summer Heat

Typically, the hottest average temperature for the month of June in Arizona is between 102 and 106 degrees Fahrenheit. Arizona’s summer climate is unique for most, so please make sure your camper is mindful of the following: 

  • Hydrate with plenty of water throughout the day.
  • Wear sunscreen and reapply throughout the day.
  • Wear shoes on the pool deck, as the concrete can get very warm.

Our utmost concern is the safety of all campers, and it is always helpful to have these messages reinforced at home before arriving at camp.
