Safety Protocols
Child Safety

Camp is not just time for your child to explore activities and make new friends.  Studies show over the summer, kids lose one month of school-year learning and the Y believes in continuing your child’s education in a fun way to prevent summer learning loss.  As part of their week schedule at camp, your child will receive instruction on the following areas:

United Way Math

30 minutes of math instruction twice a week and daily math games to spark cognitive thinking.


60 minutes of literacy activities each week that focus on phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.

Nature Explore

10 weekly, 60-minute lessons that include habitat exploration, water conservation, pollution reduction, food chains and Texas ecology using a curriculum developed in partnership with Agrilife through Imagine Science.

Mindfulness and Social-Emotional Learning

Two-30 minute mindfulness workshops each week designed by Emory University and the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics as well as focusing on creating a compassionate camp, building resiliency and strengthening attention and self-awareness.

“It gave my daughter a chance to have something to look forward to in the summer. Day camp offered an experience that challenged her creative thinking and allowed her to build friendships. I felt that she was in a safe and friendly environment while I was working during the day.”
