Teens Building for Tomorrow Camp

Summer 2024: Leadership, Arts, Citizenship, & Entrepreneurship 

2024 camp is now full!

In this camp, students in rising grades 6-12 gain skills, empowerment, and citizenship through experiences such as STEM activities, yoga, art lessons in various media, volunteerism, and field trips throughout the community. Community partners provide presentations and opportunities to learn about careers, continuing/higher education paths, and life interests. The camp is facilitated by accomplished local artists Mayra Zamora and Monica Marie Garcia and is limited to 15 participants.


  • Camp takes place Monday-Friday from 10:00am-5:00pm* at the Garcia Center, 2021 Agnes St. (*The schedule might occasionally change due to a field trip.)
  • Students must bring a sack lunch unless otherwise instructed.
  • Camp costs $375 for all 6 weeks. Individual week signups are available for $125 per child (or $62.50 per week with scholarship). 
  • We offer a limited number of scholarships for students in need. Contact us at 361-825-3600.
  • Artwork created at the camp will be installed for an exhibition with a closing reception, and also mural dedication.
