A listing of area recreation activities.

Wednesday, July 16

• Believe it or not, prep hoops season isn’t far off. Girls can now register to sharpen their skills at Pima College’s Girls Aztec Basketball Camps, from July 28 to 31. Cost is $85 for grades 3-12. For more information or to make reservations, call coach Todd Holthaus at 425-4909.

Friday, July 18

• The desert resurrects under the glow of moonlight, in muted shades of blue, gray and black. Take a guided walk on desert trails and learn about the animals active under the stars. Details: 8 to 9 p.m.; Pima County Tucson Mountain Park, Gilbert Ray Campground, 8451 W. McCain Loop Road; free for all ages; for more information or to make reservations, call 615-7855 or e-mail eeducation@pima.gov.

• Now’s your chance to learn firearm safety and the laws required to carry a concealed weapon in Arizona.
