****ALL SCHOLARSHIPS FOR THE 2018 SUMMER CAMPS HAVE BEEN AWARDED!!

 

summer aquatic adventure camp

The Aquatic Science Adventure Camp is one of the longest-running science summer camps in Texas. Since 1988, the Edwards Aquifer Research and Data Center at Texas State University in San Marcos has hosted thousands of campers from across the country to come experience the wonder of discovery and the thrill of adventure! During this week-long camp, campers will have the chance to learn through exploration and hands-on activities related to water and the environment. We believe in the power of experiential learning and self-directed discovery. Whether it’s on a bug hunt in the creek, getting dirty in a cave, or reaching the top of the ropes course, all of our activities are understanding of the world around them. Our goal is for campers to have the chance to experience what real scientists do for a living and learn in a university environment using professional-grade equipment. Our motto is “Real Science, Real Fun!” for a reason!

Overnight Camp $699

The overnight Adventure Camp runs from Sunday afternoon through Friday afternoon. Campers will spend the first part of the week on the main Texas State University campus and stay in a residence hall. The last 3 days of camp are spent out at the scenic University Camp, a Texas State-owned property located along the shores of the beautiful Blanco river. Campers will experience a wide variety of exciting and educational activities including river rafting, scuba diving, exploring a wild cave, ropes course, and even a natural water slide! Throughout the week, campers will engage with our knowledgeable and qualified staff to learn in large- and small-group settings and participate in scientific investigations related to water and the environment.

Day Camp $349

We now offer a 5-day camp for families who live close to San Marcos and want to give their kids a chance to experience the full Adventure Camp program but without the overnight stay requirement. The camp runs from 8am to 5pm Monday-Friday and features all of the daytime science and recreational activities from the overnight camp including river rafting, caving, rock-wall climbing, and scuba diving. Lunch is provided every day except for the caving trip day where campers will need to bring a sack lunch.
