My son is entering grade 9 in the Fall and I am looking for summer camps/classes to keep him engaged. Our preference is one geared toward Science and that it be in the Dallas/Fort Worth area as we are trying to coordinate camp times with our other children.

There are many camps in our area for elementary and middle school children and I am well versed on those progams but am finding difficulty finding programs for my oldest child.

Any suggesstions would be greatly appreciated.

fort worth paper ran a summer activity article a week or so ago--you could try going to the star telegram site and searching for it
although I think most of the activities were for younger students

you might check the Science museum in Dallas
and also the magnet school in Denton to see if it might offer something for students not enrolled there

I think you are going to have a difficult time
most high schoolers are working although someone just entering 9th grade is still too young for driver's license usually and therefore probably too young for "real" job...

Funny you mention the job thing. He's started a quasi pet sitting service but so far his only customer has been a close friend of mine.

Do you know the name of the magnet school in Denton?

Do you know if LD Bell offers IB classes in the summer?

The summer camp at the Science museum in Dallas only offers courses for students up to grade 6. There are soooooo many options for those 8th grade and younger, however, after grade 8, the options are few and far between and much much more expensive than those for younger children.
