Summer fun at Desert Camp pool

| Elizabeth Dankert

Temperatures are rising and the Desert Camp Community Center is the perfect place to cool off and enjoy the long summer days. Desert Camp offers residents a variety of amenities including a zero depth toddler pool and a 25-yard main pool with 3 dedicated lap lanes. Residents can relax poolside in the Toddler Cabana and West Cabana or lounge under one of 12 extra-large shade umbrellas. With two built-in gas BBQ grills, Desert Camp is the ideal location to cook outside.

The Toddler Cabana and West Cabana are available for rent and perfect for a summer birthday party or special event. Cabana rentals are available daily from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 4 to 8 p.m. Pricing varies and depends on the size of the group. For more information, please contact Rental Specialist Jessica Ruemler at or call the front desk at 480.342.7178.
