2022 Summer Camps Offered:

Overnight Expedition CampsThe overnight camp runs from Sunday afternoon through Friday afternoon. Campers will spend the first part of the week on the main Texas State University campus staying in a residence hall. The last 3 days of camp are spent 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, 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 staff by participating in scientific investigations related to water and the environment.  Cost: $1000

Aquatic Investigators Day Camp – This year for the first time there will be a camp for 15-16 year old campers with a passion for science. The camp runs from 8:30am to 5pm Monday-Friday and features a variety of adventure and science programming. Campers will get the opportunity to learn lab and outdoor research skills, engage in conservation efforts, and meet a variety of professionals in the field of Aquatic Science. This camp is geared towards campers who are interested in science as a career pathway and/or are just passionate about learning science. Lunch is provided. Cost: $500

Explorer Day Camps - We offer a week-long day camp for campers who would like the camp experience without an overnight component. The camp runs from 8:30am to 5pm Monday-Friday and features many of the daytime science and recreational activities from the overnight camp including river rafting, caving, scuba diving, and more. Lunch is provided during camp. Cost: $500

Discovery Day Camps – This year for each age group there will be two independent single day programs that will be offered. Discovery Day Camps run from 9am to 4pm. The Habitat Day will include a mussel hunt in the Guadalupe River and an aquatic plant ecology class. The River Runner Day’s main activities will be tubing down the San Marcos River and a macroinvertebrate lab. Lunch is not provided; campers will need to bring their own food for the day. Cost: $60

Need-based scholarships will be available for campers to apply for in early spring.
