TAMIU 2014 Children’s Summer
Camps Offer Activities, Education

With the end of May fast approaching, the thoughts of a summer of fun are dancing in young heads…but for parents the dance to insure that fun has just begun.

A Texas A&M International University, a summer of fun and learning is available with an impressive schedule of offerings at the TAMIU Children’s Summer Camps. 

The University’s Office of Continuing Education coordinates the Camps, which vary in length from 4 days to 8 weeks and are available for campers ages 4-17. Camps begin as early as June 9, 2014 and continue through August 8, 2014.

TAMIU Continuing Education director Kimberly Martin del Campo said this summer’s offerings are diverse.

“We pride ourselves on creating a summer experience that is rich and relevant and full of both fun and innovative learning opportunities. You’ll find everything from  ‘Barbie, Barbie, Everywhere,’ dedicated to helping participants learn what they need to become great girls with bright futures, to “Look at Me, I’m an Author,” a writing program that helps children find their voice, to STEM camps focusing on including mathematics, chemistry, biology, and engineering… in addition to a full spectrum of specific sport camps, recreational camps and hybrids,” Martin del Campo explained.

She noted that the University’s long history of offering summer camps, in excess of 20 years, has seen participation become generational.

“We’re now meeting parents who were themselves campers years ago and want that caliber of experience for their children.  It’s also not uncommon to see previous campers returning to our programs with younger or older brothers or sisters, or friends from school,” she noted.

All Camps take place on campus in University facilities and are supervised by paid staff, faculty and volunteers.

Martin del Campo said she urges parents to take advantage of the University’s online registration and payment to insure a place in the Camps of their choice.

“We have a terrific web site which includes all Camps, full instructions, requirements and registration and online payment is just a click away,” she encouraged.
