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! 

Camp registration will open to residents on Monday, April 19, and non-residents on Monday, May 3. Registration will only be accepted online. Please see the instructions below for details on setting up or accessing your account.
