We are excited to offer a summer camp geared for the beginning middle school aged child (entering 5th and 6th grades) to give them a preview of what's to come in Middle School.  This camp is open to the general public. If you've never stepped foot on our campus, this is a great opportunity to learn what we're all about.

Join Presbyterian School Art, Science and Language Arts teachers as they take campers on a unique week dedicated to exploring and learning from the School's neighborhood. Campers will be on the move daily as they step into a different museum each day of the week with teachers who love leaving the campus hallways to seek new sights. Highlights of the week include:

  • Visiting behind the scenes at the Houston Children's Museum looking at Science together with Art
  • Reflecting- in images and in words- about famous art in the Museum of Fine Arts
  • Experimenting with iPad photography in the Menil neighborhood at the Center for Photography
  • Creating jewelry inspired by the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft exhibits
