Summer Youth Activity Program
The aim of the Rice University Summer Youth Activity Program is
to introduce children (aged 6 to 11) to a variety of sport and recreational
activities in a friendly, non-competitive environment. Our staff of instructors and counselors consists of students from Rice and other area universities, as well as professionals trained in education and recreation. It is our goal to provide each participant with age appropriate instruction and an exciting and memorable experience. Participants will spend his/her summer having fun, meeting new friends and being
physically active. A summer with SYAP will leave your child with a
sense of physical, social and emotional accomplishment, and
memories that will last a lifetime.
ALL SESSIONS AND AGE GROUPS OF S.Y.A.P. ARE NOW SOLD OUT.

*Please note: The Summer Youth Activity Program is not “nut free”. We sell products in our Concession Booth that contain nuts, and we do not prevent families from sending children to campus with lunches/snacks that might have nuts in them. However, we will provide reasonable accommodations to protect the well-being of a child who has nut-related allergies. If your child has a nut allergy, please contact us to discuss the degree of severity prior to enrolling him/her in our program.
