It may be early September, but summer-like temps can last well into the Fall, especially here in Arizona. If you're feeling cooped up in your apartment trying to avoid the heat, check out my recommendations of things to do without stepping foot outside your apartment community!

Take a Dip in the Pool

The most popular way to beat the heat is by taking a plunge in your local community pool. Camden takes pride in upkeeping and maintaining the pool areas so you can always enjoy yourself hassle-free. Grills and seating areas are located throughout for your comfort and convenience to make the most out of your pool day. We realize this is still an outdoor activity, but there are plenty of ways to stay cool by the pool. Don’t forget to utilize the provided shade, pack water, and wear plenty of SPF to fight off the harmful effects of the desert sun.

Enjoy the Air Conditioned Fitness Center

Summer is the season for getting in shape! Ready to rev up your summer bod? Check out your community’s fitness center. Most Camden communities have a variety of weights, equipment, yoga mats, and some even participate in video classes free of charge. Camden Tempe features a newly updated fitness center with all the equipement you'll need to get a great workout in. Who needs a gym membership when you have everything you need steps away from your door? In the cool, air-conditioned gym, you can complete your whole routine!

Entertain in the Community Clubhouse

Looking to show off your community to friends and family but don’t have the space to entertain? Check out your community’s clubhouse. Most are equipped with plenty of seating, games, TVs, and sometimes even full kitchens. Camden Foothills has a clubhouse with a kitchen fit for royalty where you can wine and dine your guests, all with a mountain view. You can even host private events such as baby showers or birthday parties. Want to reserve the clubhouse all to yourself? Contact the office for rates!
