DAYCATION (‘da-‘ka-shen) = a time when students are able to vacation from routine life!

The anticipation of summer can quickly turn into sighs of "I'm bored!" as kids fall into their annual out-of-school routines. Daycation offers kids -- and parents -- a great alternative to doing the same ol' thing in the months ahead.

With fun activities for all ages and interests, Daycation is one of the most robust summer day camp programs in the Houston area. No wonder kids come back year after year! And, parents enjoy the convenient location and affordable rates, too.
