Navigating a GPS to discover desert creatures, going on a photo safari, or meeting real-life explorers, the Fairmont Scottsdale is making this summer an adventure to remember. The resort is introducing the first National Geographic Explorers Camp, exclusively for overnight guests.

From May 22 – September 7, 2009, the camp offers discovery-based activities for ages 5-12. Campers trek on a “Desert Discovery” GPS treasure hunt, go on a “Photo Safari,” have fun at a “Geo Bowl” and play on gigantic, highly-detailed maps.

Best of all, eight world-renowned National Geographic explorers share their adventures on select Saturdays. Experts include “Crittercam” inventor Greg Marshall, tornado chaser Tim Samaras and reptile expert Brady Barr. Families also enjoy waterslides, “dive-in” movies, fishing, a teen “Hang Out” and infant amenities upon request.

Summer rates begin at $199 per night, with a $100 daily dining credit. The camp is a la carte, starting at $49. For details, dial (800) 908-9370 or click here.
