A Busy Mom's Guide To: Boerne, San Antonio, & Hill Country Summer Camps
We made it. The school year is over (at least after this week, it is!). Now what? Personally, I'm looking forward to a break from early morning drop-offs and having a bit more flexibility with our schedule. But you and I both know there's little chance of making it through the summer in one piece if we don't get those kids into something structured and away from the house for at least part of it...am I right? Well, what about summer camps? There's no shortage of them around these parts, that's for sure, but does that mean I've got any scheduled for our kiddos? Hahaha, no way! Life is busy, y'all, which I'm sure you understand. So to help us all out, I've put together a little guide to Hill Country summer camps, with specific attention paid to San Antonio and Boerne:
- Find all of the information you could ever need about the City of San Antonio's Summer Youth Program and Teen Connection program HERE.
- THIS POST by Alamo City Moms Blog is cram-packed with summer camps being offered in the big city.
- UTSA is offering a ton as well, and you can find those HERE.
- And THIS "My San Antonio" article lists even more.
- Of course, Boerne Parks & Recreation has got you covered with a ton of camps being offered through the city, which you can find HERE.
- Then there's the Cibolo Nature Center. Find their schedule HERE.
- The Boerne Family YMCA's summer camp schedule can be found HERE.
- Boerne's soccer club, FC Thunder, also hosts summer camps and you can find info on those HERE.
- Boerne ISD is a nice resource for educational summer camps for teenagers; find them HERE.
- Boerne Community Coalition and the Patrick Heath Public Library work together to provide free summer camps (with meals included) for youth and teens who are on the Federal free-lunch program. You'll find information about that HERE.
- Enchanted Springs Ranch summer camp info can be found HERE.
- Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort camp info can be found HERE.
- Also, pretty much any business in Boerne that includes families and children in their target market will offer summer camps as well. You'll find all sorts of summer fun at Maker's Place, Mary's Studio of Dance, Lonestar Collective Dance, Ms. Sue's Art Studio, Boerne Gymnastics, Crossfire Gymnastics, Paramount Taekwondo, and even the Boerne Community Theatre. Your best bet, if your family knows and loves a local business that's not on this list, is to give them a call or check out their website to see if they're offering camps.
- THIS BLOG POST from Phyllis Browning Co., is chock-full of some of the best summer camps in the Hill Country.
- EquipGirl now offers a summer camp in Bandera, which you can read about HERE.
- Still Water Camps offers summer camps in Blanco and Leakey; find info HERE.
- Of course, Hermann Sons has been offering summer camps near Comfort for decades (you must be a member to sign-up but members also get free dance classes and other great benefits, so it's worth checking out); find info HERE.
- The Science Mill in Johnson City offers STEM-focused summer camps, which you can read about HERE.
- His Hill offers a faith-based summer camp near Comfort and you can find info on that HERE.
- Camp Capers is a faith-based summer camp in Waring and you'll find their info HERE.
In addition to what I've listed in this post, a lot of the local churches offer faith-based summer camps and Vacation Bible Schools as well. There's far too many to list, but if you're interested in going that route, try a quick Google search for churches in your area then just give them a call!
Have you procrastinated on signing your kids up for activities this summer like I have? Hopefully you've found this post helpful. And if you have any other camps to add, please share!
