Club SciKidz is the best place under the sun for extraordinary summers. Established in 1997, founders Bob and Sue Hagan have created one of America’s finest summer science and technology camps.
The original business operated under the name, Summer Science Day Camps, Inc., which is still the affiliate company name. Bob and Sue have a combined 30 plus years of teaching experience and both hold a Master’s Degree in Education.
The first summer camp was called “Special Effects” which taught campers the science involved in Hollywood’s Special Effects techniques.
As time progressed, additional age groups and science themes were added. Beginning in 2001, Camp Young Scientist was created to accommodate children ages 6-8. Each year additional Science Camp themes were added and there are now over 50, and counting, offering exciting projects and experiments for kids ages 4-15.
In order to become a “full-service” science enrichment business, additional programs were added to include: after-school science clubs, Robotics, science assemblies, and in-school field trips.
Club SciKidz Houston (CSKH) is Houston’s (and surrounding area) premiere summer Science day camp. There are currently two Sugar Land Summer Camp locations and one Katy Summer Camp location. CSKH provides authentic, immersive, and application-based experiences. The experiences have loads of engagement, are fun, and planned with plenty of hands-on science (S), technology (T), engineering (E), art (A) and mathematics (M) opportunities. Club SciKidz Houston has two components, camps for ages 4 – 11 and 12 – 15 year olds. The camps for ages 12 – 15 are titled Tech Scientific and emphasize such 21st Century Skills as collaboration, technology integration, communication, presentation, and problem solving. The camps for ages 4 – 11 offer similar skill building opportunities, but in an introductory manner.
