The Summer Book - Houston Day Camp Guide
THE SUMMER BOOK® is an annual comprehensive guide to Houston day camps and classes for kids 4 years old and up and teens. The guide is published annually in MARCH by Gish Creative and includes information on over 200 organizations offering camps and classes for children in the summertime. The camps are divided by “arts”, “educational”, “religious”, “special needs” and “sports”. It also includes information on which camps are free or offer scholarships, which are full day or for teens, as well as a week-by-week chart by date and a chart detailing amenities of each camp. To help parents “map out” each child’s summer, there is a camp calendar for organizing weekly schedules. Please note that since every camp experience is unique, we made a decision to not rate the camps and to instead concentrate on information needed by parents.
THE SUMMER BOOK® is the brainchild of Houston mom Sarah Gish. It was created in 2003 after she barely survived the first year of "summer stress" -- the summer after kindergarten for her older child when daycare programs were no longer an option. After several parents began requesting to look at her stockpile of summer camp brochures and information, Sarah realized that one "go-to" guide for summer day programs in Houston needed to be created. She decided to concentrate on day camps since the world of overnight camps extends all over the state and beyond -- including them would compromise the focus of the book. THE SUMMER BOOK® quickly became THE information source on summer day camp information for desperate parents and caregivers as well as grandparents and out-of-town visitors to Houston.
