My Gym Ahwatukee • 4142 E. Chandler Blvd.

As a community staple for more than eight years specializing in keeping kids active, My Gym Ahwatukee is offering its summer camps and classes for kids.

Available for kids from age 3 to 9, the gym has its summer camp on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1 to 4 p.m. where kids can enjoy structured activities and games with a theme each day.

“The three hours are extremely active,” said owner Amy Huffman. “It’s a great way to burn off energy for the kids.”

Summer classes are offered for babies as young as 6 months to kids as old as 13 throughout the week at the children’s fitness center.

The indoor children’s gym has more than 270 locations nationwide.

Huffman said the summer camps and drop-off events biweekly are most popular among parents.

“It’s nonstop fun, it’s not like an open day care and it keeps the kids active at a time when moms need it,” Huffman said.

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School has been part of the Ahwatukee area since 1992, offering each of its Rattlers an enjoyable schooling experience from the morning bell to the ending bell.

According to its website, the name of the school is from the Akimel O’odham language and it means, “Children of the River.”

Principal Mike Deignan said the school offers sport activities and a learning lab before school starts, which provides students time before school to seek extra help with work completion or tutoring.

“That keeps our students involved with a lot of things, between the sports and the learning lab,” Deignan said.
