Connect Community Summer Camps
Community Summer Camps
We believe in engaging students in a third space, outside of their home-school-home trajectory. This is especially true in the summer where out of school experiences can benefit children by increasing academic performance, improving classroom behavior and attendance, encouraging activity and healthy living and decreasing childcare costs.
To build on great classroom learning, and avoid summer brain drain, Connect Community raises the additional funding necessary to offer high-quality summer camps. Connect camp partners teach kids to code, use a 3-D printer, paint, cook, create and perform plays, musical improvisation and more!
Additionally, St. Luke’s offers a Summer Clubhouse camp that is a safe, educational and spiritual place for children of the Sharpstown and Gulfton area to come. This is SIX wonderful weeks filled with learning activities and fun adventures for children going into Kindergarten through Fifth grade.
In addition to Connect Y memberships, the YMCA offers sports and summer programming.
