EARDC Aquatic Science Adventure Camp *UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Real Science and Real Fun!

EARDC aquatic science 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 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! (click here for camp sessions)
