With beaches, swimming, and school being out, summer is approaching, and many individuals said they are ready to enjoy the break with family and friends.

Camps can help individuals with their faith, athletic ability, music skill, or even just having a good time with friends. There are many summer camps in Texas varying with different events or things to do while staying.

“Summer camp can definitely push your faith, depending on whether you go to a faith-based camp or not,” math teacher and coach, Chris Osborne, said.

There are many faith-based camps in Texas, the most popular being Sky Ranch, and Pine Cove with thousands of campers each year. Both of these camps offer overnight stays or family experiences; with many activities such as ziplining, riding horses, and swimming.

“I go to Pine Cove in the summer. I go because it’s a lot of fun to be with my friends it affects me in because the faith experience is really special and you learn so much,” seventh-grade, Bella Levin, said.

There are also many sports camps to improve athletic ability and skill. Performance Course is a summer athletic program that can improve a students skill it also provide Lovejoy program for the summer and spring. These events can be held for students in fifth to twelfth grade, and take place on the Lovejoy campus improving students’ skill in any event.

“I go to the Lovejoy basketball camp, it affects me in many different ways, I learn a lot from the camp and it’s a good place for me to practice. I also get to know coaches that I will be with in high school so that’s a good advantage.” seventh-grade, Sammie Basson, said.

Students in fine arts such as band, choir, orchestra, art, and color guard can also attend summer camps to practice their skills. Many music camps are also in Texas most being at school districts over the break such as Stephen F. Austin and Plano daily and overnight camps recommended by band directors.

“I’m going to do the Wylie, Plano, and Stephen F. Austin band camps this year. I’m excited because I love my instrument and its such an amazing environment to be in with people who are passionate about the same thing as you,” seventh-grader, Emma Ball, said.

  A different array of camps are also offered at Willow Springs over the summer such as Sewing camp and Photoshop Shenanigans camp, both improving a students skill or having a good time with others. Camps can help people improve in many different things and keep up skill during the break.

“I think that summer camp can improve many skills. One major skill it works on is social skills. You are going to spend one whole week with other students that you get to know and become friends with,” Osborne said.
