Discovery Camp

Come experience an adventure this summer with the City of San Marcos Discovery Camp! The Parks and Recreation Department is offering 9 themed weeks of exploring, adventure, and discovery for campers ages 5 to 10. Campers will have the chance to be outside, do experiments, build things, get messy, work as a team, develop leadership skills, and have fun! Lunch is provided by SMCISD. Each week may include in-town field trips to various locations. Past field trips have included the San Marcos Discovery Center, Rio Vista pool, Sunset Bowling Lanes, and more! 

Registration is only available online.
