Is there a difference between Thunderbird/Greenway/Washington High or Williams/Higley Field High?

No. For the Southeast Valley camp, everything begins at Williams Field High School in the morning and ends there each day. For the Northwest Valley, everything begins at Thunderbird High School and ends there each day. You will always drop off and pick up your camper at those locations respectively. We use other nearby high school gyms for additional court space so that the kids have enough space for drills and games. The youngest 2 age groups will stay at the main location while older age groups will be bussed with certified high school district busses and drivers to other schools and back throughout the camp.
