When the Humble ISD Student Support Services staff members discovered that some students were having a difficult time adjusting to middle school, they decided to help. Camp Nobis Est — Latin for “It’s up to us” — was born.
The weeklong summer camp is open to all students entering middle school. Transportation is provided, and students attend four sessions daily, each addressing a skill identified to help them be ready for and successful in middle school. Sessions focus on time management, organizational skills, and classroom behavior. Camp Nobis Est also invites current high school freshmen and sophomores to mentor students during the camp and to serve as a friendly resource throughout the school year.
Data shows that students who attend the camp had fewer discipline referrals, were in attendance more often, and had higher academic success!
