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. One field trip to various locations, trip to Children’s Park Playscape, trip to the San Marcos Discovery Center, and a trip to the Rio Vista pool or Sunset Bowling Lanes each week are included in camp fees.

We are evaluating the upcoming processes for this program. This is a fluid and ever-changing situation. For now, our registration dates are "to be determined" and we will update here when we have a better idea. Thank you for your understanding!
