CREATE A SUMMER OF MAGIC AND DISCOVERY

Magical experiences and ‘aha’ moments at BIS Houston frequently happen when your child is surrounded by caring friends and staff – who encourage them to try new activities and explore beyond what they ever imagined possible.

Camp Bulldog continues the British International School of Houston’s learning beyond the classroom in this way, creating energising and memorable summer experiences.
