The Phoenix Herpetological Society (PHS) is offering a week-long adventure for youth ages 9 to 14 with a strong interest in wildlife, particularly reptiles, this summer.

Campers will explore the world of reptiles and efforts to conserve Arizona’s deserts, while working alongside herpetology experts. PHS’ Reptile Encounters Summer Camp offers four junior camp sessions and five advanced camp sessions tailored to junior (ages 9 to 11) and advanced (ages 12 to 14).

Sessions are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Phoenix Herpetological Society Sanctuary, 20701 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale.
