University of Houston-Downtown - Summer Camp 2016

High School Credit Courses​​​​​

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.

CompuCamp​​

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!

EngineeringCamp

Given the growing interest in STEM, we’ve partnered with Engineering for Kids to present a week-long camp of fun, engaging, and rewarding challenges that explore several engineering dis-ciplines such as Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, and Environmental Engineering. Students learn how engineers impact society, and experience engineering activities through inter-active hands-on projects and design activities. While the focus is on 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!

ScienceCamp​​

Students with a curious nature are primed to experience ScienceCamp, where cutting-edge content lures them into the intriguing world of science. Working with American Robotics and Mad Science, we are proud to present a week-long assortment of up-and-coming science concepts using experiments, hands-on projects, and several scientific games. It’s a grand science adventure that leaves students wide-eyed and breathless!​

LanguageCamp

Childhood is the easiest time to learn a foreign language. Children 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 the opportunity to learn French and Spanish. The classes are taught by highly trained, native-fluent speakers who are experienced in teaching children. These classes are offered in conjunction with the Berlitz  organization.

WritingCamp​

WritingCamp is the place for young writers looking to find or develop their voices. Our courses range from focusing on skills for beginning writers to mastering skills for students who are prepar-ing to enter college. These courses are offered in conjunction with the Writers in the Schools organization and are sure to tap into the imagination of every aspiring writer.

SummerAcademy​​

Summer is an excellent opportunity to get a head start on the coming academic year with Pre-AP/AP courses, healthcare, money management or an intensive ACT/SAT prep course to get ready for college. SummerAcademy offers courses according to grade level, with small classes for maximum gain.

Notes from Former Students and Parents

"Fantastic. My son enjoyed the camp a lot. He always showed me the gadgets created during the different sessions."

---Travis

"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! "
