In 1992, the Arizona Elks adopted the Steele Center as a "Major Project". Since then, Members in lodges around the state have contributed more than $4 million.
The Arizona Elks Youth Camp located in the Sierra Ancha Mountains is open and available to all youth groups throughout the state for a nominal fee.
Welcome to the great state of Arizona, the home of one of the many wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon. Our motto is "Believe in what you do and it can come true".
In Arizona, Elks help children in many ways. AEMP’s relationship with 2 projects goes back for years.
We have sponsored research at the University of Arizona's "Steele Children's Research Center" since 1992 with over $5 million in donations. We remodeled and modernized the "Arizona Elks Clinic for Children and Young Adults" and provide funds for an endowed chair in Neonatology.
We are also very proud of our Elks Youth Camp located in the Sierra Ancha Mountains in northeast Arizona. This camp is open and available to all youth groups throughout the state for a nominal fee. We will be waiving fees for bona fide youth groups in 2016 on a trial basis
The physician/scientists take care of 28,000 sick children each year at the Steele Children's Research Center. Some of these children have simple problems, like ear infections, others with life-threatening illnesses. Our goal is to give each one of them a better chance at better health. Please consider adding your support to the research efforts at the Steele Children's Research Center - to create a healthier future for all children.

The Arizona Elks operate the Jack C, Warter Elks Youth Camp located in the Sierra Ancha Mountains in northeastern Arizona. This camp is open and available to all youth groups throughout the state for a nominal fee. These fees will be waived for most bona fide Youth Groups in 2016, so make plans early to reserve your time.
Summer is here and the Jack C. Warter Youth Camp is filling up with excited campers. From Scouts to Church groups, hundreds of Arizona youth have an opportunity to hike, fish, and commune with nature thank to the efforts of many Arizona Elks. In 2016 this opportunity is offered at no charge to qualified Youth Groups. Teams of dedicated Volunteer Elks maintain and improve the camp facilities every year. More than 50 of these dedicated Volunteers showed up at the camp from April 11-17. 2016. Their reward is a simple thank-you, or much more importantly, they share the joy these campers experience.
The success of the Jack C. Warter Youth Camp belongs totally to Arizona Elks. We don’t just maintain and improve the camp, we own it. We open it, we close it, we advertise it, we fund it, we support the camp fully. There are lots of ways to share the joy, through charitable gifts, thoughts, words and deed. If you are a part of this vast support network, take a few minutes this summer to bask in the glow of our camper’s joy. Then share it with everyone you know, you can help a child get to camp this summer.
