Registration is now available for a fun-filled, action-packed enrichment program of summer
camps for youngsters in Friendswood and the surrounding area. Hosted by FISD Community
Education, the camps are scheduled over four weeks in June and July, Monday-Thursdays,
June 9-26 and July 7-10, at the Bales Intermediate campus, 211 Stadium Drive, and other sites
in Friendswood. Scores of camps and classes are planned to spark the imagination, claim the
interest and test the skills of young people ranging in age from 4-15.
Every camp includes the age range of students for which it is designed. Some age ranges are
narrow, for 4-5 year olds, for example; and some age ranges are quite broad, for 6-13 year olds,
for example. All camps are designed to give each participant the best experience possible given
the camp’s focus and design, and children need not reside in Friendswood to participate in these
The entire summer schedule of camps is listed by week on the Community Education webpage,
http://myfisd.com/services/communed/. There, parents may determine the camp sessions that
are appropriate for their children during any given week of the summer program. Brochures are
available on FISD campuses and the Friendswood Public Library.
