Calling All Children of the University Community

UHD Houston PREP Engineering Day. July 13, 2016

Children of UHD alumni, students, faculty and staff, have several opportunities to get involved at University of Houston-Downtown (UHD). In UHD’s youth and teen summer programs, offered from June 5 to July 14, children get a taste of college life as a Gator while experiencing rewarding challenges, fun and friendships of an engaging camp.

Taught by skilled and caring professors, children will enjoy:

  • cutting-edge content
  • interactive and stimulating projects
  • a social experience to remember
  • a chance to explore UHD’s clean and beautiful campus

The exclusive summer camp also features a high staff-to-camper ratio, so each student get personalized attention from instructors.

What’s available:


Students aged 10 to 17 who are not content just to use a computer but need to understand the guts of applications and programming will find satisfaction at CompuCamp.


Given the growing interest in STEM, we’ve partnered with Engineering for Kids to present a week-long camp of fun, engaging, and rewarding challenges that explore several engineering dis-ciplines such as Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, and Environmental Engineering.


Students with a curious nature are primed to experience ScienceCamp, where cutting-edge content lures them into the intriguing world of science.


Childhood is the easiest time to learn a foreign language. Children naturally immerse themselves in the new language.


WritingCamp is the place for young writers looking to find or develop their voices. Our courses range from focusing on skills for beginning writers to mastering skills for students who are prepar-ing to enter college.


Summer is an excellent opportunity to get a head start on the coming academic year with Pre-AP/AP courses, healthcare, money management or an intensive ACT/SAT prep course to get ready for college.
