Welcome To Fenster Camp!
Fenster Ranch Summer camp is an outdoor adventure day camp for kids 5 – 12 years of age. Since 1944, Fenster Ranch Summer Camp has provided the ultimate summertime adventures for youth living in Southern Arizona. We continue to offer a variety of enriching activities, including swimming, climbing, bicycling, arts and crafts, music, games, multi-cultural activities and much more.
We believe that community is the most important part of growing up, which is why many of our group activities focus on building friendships. The connections that campers make at Fenster Ranch Summer Camp with their counselors and fellow campers can last a lifetime. With a focus on safety, we encourage campers to have fun and find adventure on our 150-acre historic campus located at the foot of the Santa Catalina Mountains, just south of the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area.
Our well trained, fun-loving staff is committed to your child’s safety and encouraging every camper to make the most of their summer camp experience. Our instructors, counselors and junior counselors have extensive experience working with youth and they love to have fun with kids of all ages. We have also developed a Counselor in Training program to encourage leadership skills within young people 13-15 years of age.
Fenster Ranch Summer Camp is more than a day camp for kids 5-11 years of age. It’s an unforgettable experience that develops important character skills, such as cooperation, creativity and compassion. One week at Fenster Ranch Summer Camp will leave your child with a lifetime of memories.
Since 1944, this is the camp where Tucson’s youth have spent their summers. Many of our campers have parents who went to camp here when they were young. Our historic facilities are rustic and full of character, but activity rooms are air-conditioned and fully modernized. Our facilities include private trails, large grass fields for sports and games, tennis and basketball courts, swimming pool, ropes course, cafeteria, below-ground Kiva room, Art Hut and more.
Our property is a 150-acre gem at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains, just south of the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area. The riparian corridor of Sabino Creek runs right through our property, so we’re lucky enough to share our camp with some of the most abundant local wildlife in the area. Campers regularly see deer, javelina, rabbits, lizards, snakes and other desert critters. Because our property is so large there is no need for field trips.
Fenster Ranch Summer Camp is located on the campus of The Fenster School of Southern Arizona on Ocotillo Drive (on the east side of Sabino Canyon Rd. between Sunrise and Snyder Rd.) just ½-mile south of the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area. After driving east on Ocotillo Drive from Sabino Canyon Road, you’ll cross over four speed bumps, then turn left into the school property. Please drive slowly as there are always kids at play!
