2011 Christian Summer Camp Guide

Each year more and more summer camps are sprouting from the cracks of our great town, and each summer camp that arrives brings new and exciting adventures for kids. I hear more and more parents talking about new summer camps for their children to attend, however the variety that parents are looking for in their children’s camps has not changed. After asking multiple families about their feelings toward what their children are receiving they all had several requirements in mind.
While listening to these requests I suddenly began to think of this great summer camp that has been around in Katy for over 15 years. American Kids Athletics (AKA) has a great and exciting summer camp in store for their kids this year with a great Christian based program that teaches the kids about the “Ins” and “Outs” of the bible through a bible study program. They also provide Three to Four field trips each week with a multiple group Cook-Out each Friday. They include many educational field trips in their summer program along with multiple field trips to just fun active locations. They have even reduced their summer program rates to the rates they were charging over 4 years ago to ensure that a thing like price is not going to keep the kids away. After discussing all these important requirements of parents I found that American Kids Athletics (AKA) is defiantly a place to take your kids this summer for camp. You can come in and check out their fun and friendly staff and see it for your selves today.

The school added approximately one grade per year over a 10-year period.

Phaedrus Group

Has your child experienced difficulty making or keeping friends? Are bullies a problem? How about social maturity? There’s a lot you can do for a child with a social skills deficit, and we can help. The Social Skills Clubhouse, now in our fourth year, is a place for Pre-K through Junior High students to have fun, meet new friends, and (most importantly) learn the skills for successful peer-to-peer relations. We teach children to see their own choices from the other kid’s point of view and adjust accordingly. Our lessons are based on the works of Michelle Garcia Winner and Stephanie Madrigal—two social thinkers who really understand the root of conflict between kids. We teach the fourteen behaviors which most contribute to peer conflict, and replacement behaviors for each. Our friends are those companions who feel good about themselves in our company. We can make that happen for your child. We meet for one hour Monday through Thursday throughout the summer, but parents choose only those weeks they want their children to participate, leaving plenty of time for other activities. Sessions begin June sixth and continue through August. The cost is $100.00 per week (just $25.00 per session). The instructors are (for girls and younger boys) Terry Felcman, M.S., LPC and (for school age boys) Tom Merriman, Ed.D. We are conveniently located in Old Town Katy next to Katy High School. For more information or to enroll your child, contact Dr. Tom Merriman at 713.935.6693 or click thephaedrusgroupkaty.com.
