Black Mountain CampusThe Black Mountain Campus, a partnership of Paradise Valley Community College, Desert Foothills YMCA and the Foothills Community Foundation, is a multi-generational facility providing lifelong learning opportunities, community services, wellness programs and physical fitness. Located at the foot of iconic Black Mountain at 60th Street, just south of Carefree Highway, the campus is designed as a neighborhood-gathering place for people of all ages to exercise both their minds and bodies. The partners share a vision of bringing together the surrounding northeast valley communities of Carefree, Cave Creek, Anthem, north Phoenix, and north Scottsdale by providing education options, meeting spaces, and recreation facilities in one central location.
