SUMMER CAMPS FOR GRADES 2-3

If you are looking for some exciting summer camps right here in Friendswood, we are the spot for you!  We have a wide variety of camps  for your aspring writers, scientists, and musicians!  

Our Discovery Camps are a great option for our older students who have outgrown our summer classes for PreK .  We have camps for grades K-1, 2-3, 4-6, and even middle and high school students!   All grades listed are based on your child's ages and the grade they will be entering for fall 2018.  For example, students who will be 5 as of Sept 1 and will be attending Kindergarten for fall will attend the K-1 class.  However, students who turn 5 in October or November will NOT be eligible for the K-1 camp, they would attend the PreK camp for ages 4 and 5.   The age guidelines are based on public school guidelines, if you homeschool please calculate your child's grade level if they were in public school, not the level of the work you are doing at home.   Sorry, younger students are not permitted to join these camps.    If you have younger student  please click HERE for info on our summer PreK camps.  In most cases, we will allow slightly older students to attend the class for younger student, so if you have a 4th grader who would like to attend the 2/3 American Girl camp with their younger sister that is perfectly fine.
