2017 Summer at ST. STephen's Episcopal School

St. Stephen's is offering a variety of exciting and educational camps for children 15 months - 12 years old.  We pride ourselves on having one of the smallest campers to counselor ratios in the area (5-1) which gives campers an opportunity to really get to know the staff and for the staff to be attentive to the needs of each and every camper. This year we are opening up lower & upper elementary camp, ages 7 to 12, to the broader Houston community!

The goal of our Summer Camp is to provide a relaxed and interesting environment while providing individual attention to each child. Each session has a special focus within the regular Montessori class environment for our campers.

Parents are responsible for providing a morning snack, nutritious lunch, a water bottle for their child daily and an afternoon snack if the child is staying for the extended day program 

Summer Camp Dates: Session One 5/30 - 6/9, Session Two 6/12 - 6/23, Session Three 6/26 - 7/7, Session Four 7/10 - 7/21

Orientation and Primary Camps are only open to current and incoming students of St. Stephen's Episcopal School.


Orientation: 15 months to age 3

Orientation Camp is operated as a Montessori classroom. It’s the ideal option for children entering school in the fall. During their time, children awaken to the joys of connecting with people outside their families, allowing them to build relationships with teachers and friends. In our nurturing environment, children are provided with the consistency needed to adjust to separation.

Primary: Ages 3 to 6

Our Primary Summer Camp Programs are designed to foster an appreciation of the natural world and to encourage interest and wonder.  Each session will involve lots of outside activities, and academic and creative opportunities. Our camp sessions are filled with games, crafts, experiments, stories, live animal  presentations, dance, and of course, some big surprises!


Lower & Upper Elementary: Ages 7 to 12

Our camp goal is to encourage growth and foster education through adventure and exploration while providing a wildly fun and academic experience for children during the summer months. Fridays are Field Trip Days correlating with session themes.

Lower & Upper Elementary Camp is not limited to St. Stephen’s students but now open to the broader Houston Community, all ages 7 to 12.
