Camp Summit offers a variety of summer programs and activities that are certain to captivate the interest of children ages 18 months-13 years.

Summit is proud to partner with Smart Minds Summer Camp will also be offered on Summit’s campus. This summer camp offers the gifted and talented or highly motivated students entering 2nd through 7th grades the opportunity to engage in a captivating and an academically challenging program in the company of peers who share their enhanced abilities and love of learning. We have organized our academy to offer a choice of morning program (9:00am – 12:00pm) or an all-day program (8:00am – 5:00pm) that includes courses in geometry, magic of science, public speaking and debate, engineering in action, mastering Jeopardy, and chess strategies.

The priority for Smart Minds Summer Camp is to create a passion for learning by engaging the students in hands- on, creative, and investigative projects in each and every course we teach. Smart Minds has become one the most popular and favorite educational camps in the United States. We are frequently invited to present our program to the best international schools in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong.

Smart Minds will offer two identical 3-weeks sessions in Scottsdale and Ahwatukee this summer. For detailed information about our program, courses, locations, and dates visit us at: or call (480)773-7455.

Middle School Camp is for children entering 6th through 8th grade this coming school year.

Middle school camp is designed specifically for campers entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. It is an adventurous and exciting summer program that provides themes and activities based on survey results returned from Summit’s current middle school students. Our middle school camp programming puts an emphasis on student choice, and campers experience the freedom to pick multiple different activities throughout the day.

Middle school camp is an amazing place to make new friends and strengthen friendships with old friends. This camp is highly encouraged for students entering 6th grade as a wonderful introduction to middle school life, and a great way to make friends with older students.

Middle school camp uses the American Camp Association’s Youth Outcome Battery (ACA-YOB) to guide our programming. Based on parent surveys and other feedback, four specific outcomes were chosen from the ACA-YOB: friendship skills, teamwork, problem-solving confidence, and independence. The camp programming provides opportunities for campers to learn from each other, from camp counselors, and from their new and exciting experiences at camp.
