Greetings, Steam Camp adults :)
I’m Colleen Kell, and for the past 20 years
I’ve been a teacher at both
St. Andrew’s and St. Matthew’s in Austin.
I’ve taught first grade and fifth grade
and since 2014, I’ve taught kindergarten.

Recent recognition.
In the fall of 2019, I was honored to receive
the Connie Wootton Award for excellence in
education at the SAES biennial conference.

And now, summer.
It’s my belief that, academically,
summer offers a 3-month headstart on fall.
Precisely why I’ve been teaching
camps at St. Andrew’s for 15 years.

Thoughtful meets playful.
The curriculum for each Steam Camp
is built for summer—equal parts
relaxed groove and hands-on fun.
With STEAM activities rooted
in friendship, happiness,
wonder and, always, laughter.

Steam Camp Kids:
Smart. Bold. Happy. Kind.

“My daughter absolutely LOVES her time with Mrs. Kell. Colleen is great about teaching new and interesting concepts to kids while keeping every moment fun and exciting. She fosters a love of learning and encourages kids to discover new things about themselves and their surroundings. We can’t wait to sign up for another camp!”  ~ Virginia S.

“We have LOVED every single one of Mrs. Kell’s summer camps!! They are by far my girls’ favorite camps!”  ~ Cary J.

“Each summer, I strive to find the perfect balance of fun and carefree, yet educational and somewhat structured activities for my girls. I can say with certainty that their experience in Mrs. Kell’s STEAM camps this summer fit the bill perfectly. My daughters both had the most wonderful time in both of the STEAM camps (Ooey Gooey Science and Kitchen Kids) they attended at St. Andrew's this summer. Mrs. Kell’s fun-loving, friendly, and creative personality is most definitely a magnet for all children who encounter her and definitely made these camps FUN! But her passion for teaching, her wealth of knowledge, and her years of experience with all ages of children is the icing on the cake, and both of my daughters ended each day with a great deal of excitement about what they had learned. Although it can be difficult to choose from the many many wonderful things that Austin has to offer our children in the summer, I would highly recommend choosing ANY camp with Mrs. Kell, and we most certainly look forward to signing up again next summer!”  ~ Madeleine C.

“Mom, it’s important that we go to camp every day - until the very end of this week” -- we’ve never heard that before. Thank you for making my son’s intro to school so enticing!  ~ Julie B.

“My son is in love with the magic of Mrs. Kell and the fun and joy she brings to learning and play. Mrs. Kell creates a stimulating and caring environment in her fun themed camps that my son looks forward to every year. Mrs. Kell and her summer camps are true Austin treasures that all parents should have at the top of their summer lists. Her love for children and teaching are a true inspiration!”  ~ Diana U.

“Mrs. Kell is a phenomenal kindergarten teacher, and this translates into her summer camps. The kids absolutely love her, and they had a blast every day. My daughter loved being able to do something different every day, and her favorite was decorating her homemade cakes, which were amazing!! It was definitely the most fun she has ever had at a camp. We are so very thankful for Mrs. Kell and all of the thought and energy she put into this week!”  ~ Sue R.

“My daughter had a fantastic week in Mrs. Kell’s Ooey Gooey Science camp. She had a lot of fun, loved the experiments and projects they did, and as an added bonus, she learned a lot! Can't ask for much more from a day camp. We have done Colleen’s camps for years and they are always some of my girls’ favorites. Highly recommend!”  ~ Lisa M.

“On behalf of my son, THANK YOU! He had an absolutely awesome time and we thank you for a wonderful experience!”  ~ Josh B.

“My daughter participated for 4 weeks of summer camp at St. Andrew’s. She was nervous at the beginning but by the second day she started talking a lot about the activities and teacher. Mrs Kell took care of my daughter so well with a sincere attitude and kept me well updated! As parents, we felt so secure that she was teaching our daughter! Thank you very much!”  ~ Mai B.

“Mrs. Kell’s camps are so much fun I don’t even know how to describe them!”  ~ P.J., student
