Thinking Camps

ATP Thinking CampATP and Sherman ISD
“Thinking” Camp for local students

For the last fifteen years, the Austin Teacher Program has worked with Sherman ISD to provide a summer camp experience for area elementary students. As a part of their social studies/science methods course, ATP students oversee all aspects of the camp under the supervision of Dr. Julia Shahid, Austin College Associate Professor, and Cyndi Petray, Sherman ISD teacher at Jefferson Elementary. The camps are funded by a generous grant from the Capt. H.T. Hastings Charitable Trust. Each summer the camp has a different theme.
