Christmas Camp® Comes to Life at The Phoenician


“Christmas Camp is all about taking time before the hectic holiday season to relax, reset, and rejuvenate, so you can embrace the true meaning and magic of Christmas. I chose The Phoenician to bring my Christmas Camp TV movie and novel to life because I’ve personally experienced over the years how this legendary resort continues to focus on creating transformative and authentic experiences for guests. I couldn’t be more excited and honored to bring Christmas Camp home to Arizona and The Phoenician!” ­– Karen Schaler
