Unfortunately, camping is probably out. Although, you may find some areas around Phoenix that are set up for it. It is not an inexpensive proposition. I recommend getting several people together and going in on a rental house. there are thousands of them available in the area but there won't be in a month. That is the most popular time of year in Phoenix.
