Summer camps at UTSA invite students to learn something new

The UTSA summer camps range in a variety of interests.

APRIL 29, 2022 — As the school year winds down, summer camp programs at UTSA are ramping up. Dozens of camp opportunities, many of them kicking off in June, are available through UTSA that cater to youth—from kindergarten through high school—as well as young adults.

UTSA camps cover every interest, from science, engineering and architecture to sports, music and writing. The camps offer participants a place to try something new while having fun and spending quality time with the university's outstanding students, faculty and staff. They also give youth a chance to explore a campus as a way of creating a college-going culture.

Throughout the summer, UTSA will host half-day and full-day camps at both the Main and Downtown Campuses. Some will last a few days while others will extend a week or two. Families can register campers by visiting the UTSA Summer Camp website.
