Global Quest Summer Camp

Due to the announcement on 27 June 2020 from the Harris County Judge’s office and the movement of the county to Level 1 Severe/Stay Home, we have taken the difficult decision to not hold our Global Quest Summer Camp as the health and safety of our community is of the utmost importance. 

Global Quest Summer Camp

Global Quest Summer Camp is a summer experience open to all children ages 3 through 11 that takes all of the best from our transformative curricula and turns it into an engaging summer adventure for your child!

Our vibrant, award-winning campus hosts a one-stop-shop summer experience where there is something for everyone: performing arts productions, PE, STEAM explorations, and lots of FUN!

Every child is guided through our themed weeks by our own passionate teachers. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the world on our Global Quest: an adventure for your mind where no passport is required.

What is different about Global Quest:

  • Low ratio classes led by globally recognized teachers ensures individualized attention
  • Cutting edge technology and resources on our secure campus
  • Balanced programming in collaboration with Juilliard, MIT, and UNICEF

 

Camp Fees

Weekly camp fee: $375/week

The BISH Summer camps in 2018 were wonderful!  It was great to see how the children played together and the highlight of each week was the children led performance!  Watching the children develop in both confidence and teamwork was amazing to watch week by week and I know we will plan our summer vacation around the summer camp dates to make sure Joe can attend again next year!

I'd like to thank you for everything you've done to my kids and to us, parents. Specially because they are brothers in different ages and it is not easy for them to be together in other place (out of home) and share time, projects and share time with their own friends… Our sons came back much more engaged each other! The boys have told us all the fun they've had in the summer camp, lovely kids that they have met and all that they have learned. I'll highly recommend your Camp for other families.
