Camp Adventure! at Atherton Elementary


Camp Adventure! is a partnership between Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation and the Children’s Museum of Houston, in collaboration with some of Houston’s top corporate and community partners which bring enriched art, science and literacy curriculum to 600 students in Houston. This summer reading camp program is committed to keeping at-risk students from falling victim to the summer reading slide and to keeping young minds inspired and engaged.


Camp Adventure! at Atherton Elementary School (HISD) will run from July 8th through July 18th.


We need your help! We invite you to support this worthy effort through volunteer participation. To help maximize the impact of these summer adventure camps, we’re seeking community-minded individuals and groups (up to 35 per day) to serve as volunteers from 7:30am-3:00 pm. Volunteers will serve as Junior Counselors and help with story times, science experiments and games. Your contribution of volunteer time would be deeply appreciated and needed to ensure the success of Camp Adventure. Lunch will be provided for all full-day volunteers.
