About the Camp Tontozona History

Camp Tontozona was the vision over 50 years ago of the President of ASU, Grady Gammage and Professor Mortensen to be a learning platform for the students. In addition to being that platform, Camp T has also been the training site for the Arizona State University football team. Over the years numerous coaches have brought their athletes to train on the sports field built onto the property.

We have proudly managed Camp Tontozona since 2011! We are reaching further than just the ASU community today with Camp T serving over 65,000 campers.
