(June 16, 2014) -- This week, UTSA welcomes more young students to summer camps across the campuses. The camps help students expand their horizons through hands-on activities and open their minds to opportunities in higher education. More than 8,500 students will participate in camps throughout the summer.
Camps opening this week are the Prefreshman Engineering Program, Archaeology, Architecture, Writing and Flute, with camps continuing in athletics, sciences and performing arts.
As San Antonio's summer camp destination, UTSA is offering 23 camps in June, July and August on topics including science, engineering, architecture, sports, music, writing and language for children and teens.
Each camp offers participants the chance to have fun, make friends and learn something new. For many attendees, it is the first experience at a top-quality institution of higher education. Some camps are free daylong programs, others last a week or two, and some go through the summer.
Camp highlights for this week:
