Experienced or Exploring, We Support You!
Week-long summer camps are the perfect chance for kids to do two things: spend focused time on something they already like, or try on something new, something shiny that catches their curiosity but that they might not know much about. One week of focused exploration gives your child a greater understanding of and hands-on experience in a subject. That knowledge might make them hungry for more, or it might satisfy their desire for that particular dish; in either case they come away knowing a little more about their world and about their own appetites, which is great information to have!
Day camps in Houston are also an opportunity to learn more about local organizations that are eager to engage your family throughout the year. Museums, theaters, studios, and other institutions offer behind-the-scenes experiences with professionals in their field. These relationships and experiences are enriching and inspiring for kids, and make meaningful connections that enhance school-year studies and can be continued throughout the year.
Frame Dance appreciates the chance that summer camps provide to deepen our relationship with current and former dancers, and to meet new dancers (bring your friends!) as we share our inclusive, smart, and supportive approach to dance. We have just one camp available for each age group, so sign up quick!
July 6-10 Ashley Horn and Lydia Hance teach our Wiggle Worms: A Bug’s Life camp. Creative movement, music, and mural-making for age 3 to 5 years.
July 13-17 Ashley, Lydia, and educator Kerri Neimeyer (that’s me!) present Leaping Lizards camp for ages 6 to 8 years. Our theme is Sheroes and Heroes, and includes modern dance, ballet, music creation, costume design and visual arts practices.
July 20-24 Ashley, Lydia, Kerri, and Alli Villines present Formers and Framers for 9 to 13 year-olds, featuring training in dance, choreography, costume design and poetry/songwriting. We are making makers!
Whether your child is looking to dabble in dance or go deeper, we welcome and support them in their dance experiences and explorations.

Ok, I’ll go first:
The coolest summer camp my kid has done is Aurora Picture Show Summer Filmmaking Camp (http://aurorapictureshow.org/pages/summer_filmmaking_camps_120.asp). Spots fill up quick, but are still open for filmmakers 12-15.
Prelude Music summer camp (https://www.preludechildren.com/vlt123556.htm) was also great for my child. Mine is a music kid, but also a distracted kid, and I loved the support and respect he received at Prelude.
Solaris Pediatric Therapy offers Handwriting and Yoga camp (https://www.solarispediatrictherapy.com/contents/therapeutic-programs/handwriting-yoga-camp). I really appreciated the combination of fine and gross motor skills, and the professional OT environment.
Houston Arboretum summer camps seemed a little crazy to me because it’s so darn hot outside, but my kid loved it. I never heard the campers complain about the heat, and they do spend a good deal of time indoors and emphasize staying hydrated. Instructors were exceptional (https://houstonarboretum.org/summer-camp-2020/).
