Camp Size and Structure: Limit 20 total campers per week. Campers will be divided in two groups of 10 campers that will have separate camp spaces at the Center. Each group will have the same camp instructor and teen counselor for the entire week. Note: At the time of registration, you must list the first and last names of any friends that your child would like in their camp group. We can not guarantee that any two kids will be placed in the same group without this information up front.

What to Bring: lunches and water bottles. Depending on Covid conditions at the time of camp and current City of Bellaire Covid policies, campers may be recommended to wear masks (but we can not require it).

Please notify the Center via phone call (713.667.6550) and detailed email ( of any change in your plans or need to withdraw from camp for any reason.
