Wildlife & Outdoor Recreation Summer Camp
The Arizona Game and Fish Department in partnership with Wildlife for Tomorrow came together with the idea of providing a summer camp for youth to enjoy the beauty of nature, experience wildlife and learn about Arizona's natural resources. The camp began in the summer of 2016 and has since continued!
The summer camp is held at the Hirsch Conservation Education Area. The Hirsch Conservation Education Area is located at the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Ben Avery Shooting Facility in North Phoenix. This site was named after and is dedicated to Bob and Mary Hirsch, longtime Arizonans. It was Bob and Mary’s dream to have a place for youth to experience the magical wonders of nature. Whether this involved fishing, hunting, camping, boating, bird watching or other outdoor pursuits, they understood the importance nature played in shaping the lives of children.
