Warmer weather and the end of school are just around the corner—it's time to think about summer camps! In fact, now is a great time to start researching and planning so that you can have the best summer ever, with a little help from Bear.

It’s hard to believe that it was just last month when Arizona saw record-setting snowfall. There was snow on the ground in many places around the state that rarely see the chilly white stuff. Maybe you had the chance to build a snowman or throw a snowball at your siblings or friends. Despite the delight many desert dwellers took in the once-in-a-decade winter wonderland, now temperatures are pretty much back to normal and, hard to believe, but summer is just around the corner!

What are your plans for the summer months? How will you occupy your time, keep your mind sharp and keep your cool when the temperatures really start to rise? One way to stay active and engaged is to attend one or more fabulous summer camps!
