Camp Offerings

Early Childhood | Ages 18 mos- 3 yrs

We invite children to enjoy the freedom of exploration and introduce them to the idea of learning by doing. Students will play and enjoy the outdoors with fun counselors on our Springs Campus located at 6305 Menchaca Rd. We also offer extended care before and after camp.

Currently, we only offer camp for ages 18 months to 3 years to current Headwaters students.

Pre-K and Elementary | Ages 3 Years to 5th Grade

Pre-K and Elementary-aged students will love exploring the Springs and Creek Campuses inside and out! These camps are designed to keep kids engaged and having fun all summer long. Each week has a different focus from dinosaurs to field games to shark week! Campers will meet new friends and spend time with incredible counselors, too! We also offer extended care before and after camp.

This program is to open to all!

Middle School | Grades 6-8

For middle schoolers, we have developed subject-specific camps for kids to dig deep on one topic. Whether it’s skateboarding or science, our campers are challenging themselves and making new friends each week.
