  • Retention Management & Planning and the Office of Human Resources hosted a Summer Camp Virtual Fair earlier in the spring. Recordings of the fair sessions can be found on the Summer Camp Fair website.

  • All of our 2021 Aquatic Science Adventure Camps will take place on or within walking distance from the Texas State University campus in San Marcos. Campers will enjoy a mix of fun, outdoor-adventure activities, hands-on science, games, and a chance to interact with interesting guest speakers. For more information, call 5.6176 or email the Edwards Aquifer Aquatic Data & Research Center.

  • What’s better than reading stories and poetry? Writing them!

    This summer, explore your imagination with the Central Texas Writing Project. You’ll meet other young writers and learn how to express yourself through creative writing in a fun workshop atmosphere.

    You don’t need any writing experience. Our expert teachers will guide you as you create new material. Each day, you’ll learn skills to help you grow as an author. You’ll meet new friends, get loads of ideas for more stories and poems, and leave camp with a book featuring some of your very own writing!

    All but two Young Writers Camps will be held online this year. Please check the titles to see how the camps will be delivered. Camps are two weeks long. 

    Cost is $260 per child or $230 each for two or more siblings.

  • American Red Cross swimming classes for kids are tailored to the needs of each child, so that he or she can progress at a comfortable pace. Although some children may advance more quickly or slowly, our instructors ensure that everyone receives the instruction they need.

    The Learn-to-Swim program focuses on building skills one step at a time. By giving them the opportunity to master one element before moving on to the next, our kids' swim classes make it easy to build confidence in the water.

    We offer the following lessons:

    • Parent/Child Levels 1 and 2
    • Preschool Levels 1-3
    • Learn to Swim Levels 1-6
