About University of Houston
At our Houston summer camps held at University of Houston, we strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential technology education to foster STEM skill development.
The University of Houston's 560-acre campus includes lush greenery, fountains, sculptures, and recreational fields surrounding modern classrooms, high-tech laboratories and study facilities. Its proximity to the heart of the nation's fourth largest city, Houston, is also quite an advantage.We have chosen UH to host our summer camps because it is Texas' premier public metropolitan research and teaching institution. UH stands at the forefront of education, research and service. Likewise, the resources of the Gulf Coast region complement and enrich the university's academic programs.
UH is located inside Loop 610 approximately 7.5 miles north of William P. Hobby Airport - making it a convenient day camp and overnight camp option in Houston.
