Transition Camp

Welcome, New Bailey Bears!

Starting middle school is a huge transition for everyone involved. But there's no need to worry because here at Bailey we are prepared to help you through every step of the way.


Transition Camp 2016 will be held on 3 days this summer:

  • Tuesday June 7th
  • Wednesday August 3rd
  • Thursday August 4th

Please register your incoming 6th grader for one of these day camp sessions. This is a single-day camp.

Registration is now full for the Wednesday August 3 camps, but we still have space on Thursday August 4. If you have a special request, please contact mellen.chrzanowski@austinisd.org

More detailed information can be found on the Transition Camp website.
