GISH PICKS!

I know what you’re thinking: “Summer Camp” is already on my brain? Heck yeah! Now that the thrill of Spring Break is gone, it’s time to start planning for summer and registering your kids for camps. I’m always amazed by the frenzy that starts this time of year – in fact, some camps may already be full.

But never fear: I’m here to help! I have researched and included information on almost 200 camps in THE SUMMER BOOK®: A GUIDE TO HOUSTON DAY CAMPS AND CLASSES FOR KIDS AND TEENS, which you can purchase from these fine retailers: Blue Willow Bookshop; Brazos Bookstore; British Isles; Cactus Music; Children's Museum of Houston; Fundamentally Toys; Kaboom Books in the Heights; The Motherhood Center; River Oaks Bookstore; and Second Baptist Church. You can also purchase the book online directly from me which will get it to you in approximately 2 days from order date and it will be in Barnes and Noble next week, so call your neighborhood store to make sure it’s in stock if you want to get it there.

If you need a speaker to come to your group and talk about ideas for summertime fun, call me at 713.482.7065 and let’s talk. I’m ready to share the joys of summer!

And now -- check out these summer camps endorsed by GISH PICKS…

Kids Camp at The Council, affiliated with The Betty Ford Children’s program, is a four-day prevention and support program designed for children ages 7-12 from families who have struggled, or are still struggling, with substance abuse.
