EARDC Aquatic Science Adventure Camp


We have been monitoring the global COVID-19 pandemic. The University has taken steps to ensure the safety of our campus and our community. Unfortunately, the decision has been made to cancel camps being held during Summer 2020. Therefore, we regret to inform everyone the 2020 Aquatic Summer Adventure Camps have been cancelled.  For those that have registered, we apologize for any inconvenience. Registrants will be contacted with more information. We look forward to fresh new beginnings in 2021. Everyone stay safe!

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! Campers will learn through exploration and hands-on activities related to water and the environment. Our motto is “Real Science - Real Fun!”

We invite you to check out our website to see more about the camp and all the fun and exciting activities we have planned for this year. If you have any questions about the camp or would like to talk more about our program, please call Education Director, Dr. Benjamin Hutchins at 512-245-3541 or email
