Camp Colley helps underprivileged kids learn to love nature.


Camp Colley is named in honor of James A. Colley for his vision and commitment to the outdoor experience. The enduring benefit of Camp Colley is that it enriches personal and community life through the wonders of nature.


The Camp Colley property was purchased by the City of Phoenix in 1999 and began welcoming campers in the summer of 2004 with 300 campers. In the summer of 2014, Camp Colley provided camping experiences to nearly 900 campers. Future improvements to the camp facilities will make it accessible year round.
