(June 9, 2014) -- As San Antonio's summer camp destination, UTSA will offer 23 camps in June and July on a range of topics including science, engineering, architecture, sports, music, writing and language for children and teens. The camps help students expand their horizons through hands-on activities and open their minds to opportunities in higher education.

Some camps are free daylong programs, others last a week or two, and some go through the summer. But each offers participants the chance to have fun, make friends and learn something new. For many attendees, it will be the first experience at a top-quality institution of higher education. More than 8,500 students will participate in camps throughout the summer.

Camps and academies opening or continuing this week include the Prefreshman Engineering Program, Destination Discovery, Legacy Archaeology, Interactive Technology Experience Center, Flute, Performing Arts, Writing and Sports Camps in football, basketball, baseball, men's tennis, soccer and volleyball.
