WonderKids Camp is your newest kid's summer program in the Kingwood, Humble Atascocita area. Wonder kids include all students entering the first, second and third grade who desire to learn and have fun. The WonderKids program is designed to offer children an exciting summertime curriculum. The term "WonderKids" represents the belief that all children are wonderful and thus should have an opportunity to attend. 

This new and innovative hands-on summer camp was the brainchild of 3 energetic and creative area teachers, Jessica Callahan, Megan Gray and Jennifer Guidroz. All three of these outstanding mothers and teachers have over 14 years of combined teaching experience and over 20 years combined experience in summer camp instruction and curriculum. They are not only the Camp Directors but also the instructors for the entire program. It is their goal to make this an  enjoyable experience that allows all campers to be creative and have fun while learning.

When Tara Hahn, co-owner of New Leaf Organizing, entered a Marketing Makeover contest, she told her partner, Patricia Vela, she didn’t know why she was entering because they would never win.

But, is she ever glad she did now! Tara reflects back to when she first entered. She had found the contest mentioned in the local paper with just a few days left to enter. She also remembers thinking it was too much trouble to enter because it was an essay type entry with lots of questions. However, she pursued, and now is the lucky winner.

The contest was hosted by Penworth Marketing in Humble, Texas, and was only open to those located within a 20 mile radius.
