Camp Verde is at the official geographical center of Arizona in the Verde Valley; verde is the Spanish word for green. We are surrounded by beautiful hills, mountains, and native vegetation, and the Verde River runs through our community. We would love for you to visit us and have fun at the three events that our group produces every year.
