During this summer’s Camp Adventure, AmeriCorp Associate VISTAs (Volunteers in Service to America) served as instructors and mentors to ensure campers had a fun, engaging, and educational experience. The five Associates VISTAs assisted with daily summer camp operations like enrollment and registration, curriculum kit creation, meals and camp material administration, as well as mentoring, instruction, and supervision.

Camp Adventure is hosted annually at two participating Houston ISD schools with support from Children’s Museum Houston, Houston Area Urban League, Foundation VISTAs, Houston Food Bank, American Heart Association, Theatre Under the Stars, Houston Symphony, as-well-as, with generous financial and volunteer support from Phillips 66, PwC, Target, EOG Resources, Marathon Oil, Chase, and volunteers from the Houston community.  Thank you to all those who assisted in making Camp Adventure such a success.
