Tempe, Ariz. -
Walk into an elementary school during the summer months and you might expect to hear the sound of empty classrooms; but walk down the hallways of a Tempe school and you’ll hear the sounds of Kid Zone Summer Camp
- children shouting as they play a game of basketball, asking questions as they conduct science experiments or laughing as they learn to cook for the first time.
Sports, science lessons, cooking classes, swimming and bowling are all just part of an average day at camp. Offered for children in Kindergarten through 8th grade at five schools conveniently located throughout the Tempe area, Kid Zone Summer Camps are the perfect opportunity for you to keep your child safe and entertained through the summer.
