2018 Summer Program: July 6-27
USA Youth Tours program is a residential summer camp for American and international students age 10-20. We proudly partner with Yavapai College to provide age appropriate academic work which includes TOEFL prep, Computer Science, and English studies. To learn more, visit our academics page. Each student will then have a choice to tailor the camp to one of six focus areas:
- Advanced English

For students interested in any of the sports focus areas, please visit the sports page. For students interested in basketball, you may wish to consider our Elite Basketball Program, a more selective program geared specifically for those who want to train for competitive basketball.

- In order to participate in the various trips USA Youth Tours has planned, student campers will need to have purchased the trips package for an extra $600, which allows the student to participate in three weekend trips to California, Phoenix, and Chapel Rock. The trips not only allow for students to wind down after a week of training, but also contain science, team building, and cultural immersion activities. For more information, please visit our trips page.
- You will want to purchase our essentials kit. Your student will have many of their clothing needs met for the summer including shorts, T-shirts and water bottle. To see the bag contents, please visit here. For details on what students should pack from home, please visit our packing list page.
