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.

Hands down - best camp ever! 2nd year for both my boys - ages 8 and 12 and they talk about it all year and count down the days until summer just for this camp. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and all the time, energy, support and love they have for not only what they are teaching, but who they are teaching it to. LOVE everything about it and it just seems to get better each year - THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible!
