Earn credits for High School in the summer! The credit program offers high school courses given regularly in most Texas schools and approved by the Texas Education Agency through Trent InternationalE School in Sugar Land, TX. Grades are given for each course and may become a part of the student’s overall high school grade point average.
Students aged 10 to 17 who are not content just to use a computer but need to understand the guts of applications and programming will find satisfaction at CompuCamp. This high level, hands-on training is so complete that participants with a working knowledge of an operating system like Windows (Mac and Unix users welcome, too!) will leave with a thorough understanding of the ins and outs of computers. Three sessions let us limit class size so each student gets personalized attention from our skilled instructors. Register early for this one – spaces go quickly!
New to University of Houston Summer Program is the Engineering Camp. Like students with talent in athletics or the arts, students with academic talent deserve the opportunity to develop their skills to the highest possible level. The University of Houston, along with Engineering for Kids, presents a week-long cameo of fun, engaging, and rewarding challenges that explore several engineering disciplines such as Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, and Environmental Engineering. Students learn how engineers impact society, and experience engineering themselves through hands-on, creative investigations and design activities, where exploration and risk-taking are encouraged. While the focus is on S.T.E.M academics and project based learning, the social experience that results from bringing these students together is an integral part of the program which creates a summer to remember!
Students aged 6 through 12 who make it their business to always look for new doors or exciting possibilities are primed to experience ScienceCamp, where cutting-edge content lures them into the intriguing world of science. The University of Houston, along with Mad Science and American Robotics, presents a week-long cameo of up-and-coming science concepts using experiments, hands-on projects, and slyly scientific games. It’s a grand science adventure that leaves students wide-eyed and breathless!
Childhood is the easiest time to learn a foreign language. They naturally immerse themselves in the new language. The earlier children start to learn, the more likely they are to speak without an accent. With LanguageCamp, kids and teens will have opportunity to learn French and Spanish. The classes are taught by highly trained, native-fluent speakers who are experienced in teaching children.
WritingCamp is the place for young writers looking to find or develop their voice. The courses range from beginning writers to students who are preparing to enter college. These workshops are offered in conjunction with the Writers in the School organization.
Summer is not the time to stop learning. It’s the time to bone up on skills, get a jump on the coming academic year, take an intensive SAT training, and have a great time with peers while doing it. SummerAcademy short camps offer courses grouped according to grade levels, with small classes for maximum gain. Elementary and junior high students choose from a wide range of math and communications courses, designed for fun as well as improvement. High school students hone their SAT skills because, next stop – university!

Notes from Former Students and Parents
"This was one of the best camps my daughter has ever been too. She was engaged, excited about camp and enjoyed talking to the instructors (who each knew her name)."
"Isabel loved her camp and can't wait to attend another one next summer!"
"Fantastic. My son enjoyed the camp a lot. He always showed me the gadgets created during the different sessions."
"The Wharton County Junior College in Sugar Land has wonderful, excellent facilities for computer camp. They had brand new, fast, awesome computers and my daughter really learned a lot. She has gained confidence in her computer skills, which is what I wanted to promote. I hope you have this camp again next year at this clean, beautiful facility! "
