TAMIU Summer Camps Registration Now Underway

TAMIU Summer Camps
Registration Underway

Just because the school year is over, it doesn't mean children are finished with learning until the next school year. Texas A&M International University's Summer Camps are the best way to fill that summer void for children about to enter pre-kindergarten to those heading for 11th grade.

The camps, offered by the Office of Special Programs, are divided into four camps and will run June 5 - July 6. Registration deadline is June 2, but space is limited.

The TAMIU Kinder Camp is open for children ages three to five and is scheduled for Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. Children will receive instruction in math, science, reading, and writing. Tuition is $300.

Students in grades 1 - 6 can sign up for TAMIU's Children's Summer Workshop or the Academic Camp. The Summer Workshop is scheduled to meet Monday - Thursday, 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. Subject areas include: computer education, math, science, reading, writing, chess, arts, and crafts. Campers who sign up for the Academic Camp will meet Monday through Thursday, 1 - 5 p.m. Students will publish a book, learn about computers and science and do arts and crafts. Tuition for either camp is $300.

Older students in grades 7-11 have the option of signing up for PSAT/SAT classes or academic courses. PSAT/SAT classes will meet Monday - Thursday, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. The classes will focus on math, English and writing. Students who choose to attend academic courses will meet from 1- 4:55 p.m., Monday through Thursday. The academic courses will focus on rocket design, art, science, Web design, computers, and drag racing. Tuition is $350.
