Gathering Kids Summer Camp

Every summer program is different and unique. Serving 1st-8th grade students in the Pearland community. (50 campers max. per week) Campers are divided into groups according to their age. Our Summer Camps provide the right instruction, equipment and facilities for kids to enhance their sports abilities, their artistic talents, and their adventure skills. Through the sheer variety of activities offered, we make it easy for kids to discover and develop what they like to do. We know that you want the best opportunities for your child and that you want them to be happy and successful, so we make it our goal to keep your child in an environment that promotes good health, the ability to get along with others, and thinking and problem-solving skills. – See more at: http://www.goccteam.org/gathering-kids-summer-camp/#sthash.MyvHVsES.dpuf
