Overview: Our Athletic Training Summer Camp provides high school students with a wide variety of opportunities to learn athletic training and emergency care skills from the athletic training faculty and staff at Texas State University. The Department of Health and Human Performance at Texas State University will again offer both Beginning Level and Advanced Level camp programs in 2014. In June 2013, 115 high school athletic training students from Texas and Oklahoma attended our 35th Annual Athletic Training Summer Camp.
Faculty in the Department of Health and Human Performance established the Autism Summer Camp Program in 2010. The first summer camp was hosted in July 2010 and it was the first of its kind in San Marcos to specifically focus on children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This camp is partnered with the Department of Health and Human Performance, Clinic for Autism, Research, Evaluation, and Support, and the San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District, and is supported by local sponsors so that we can continue providing services to this underserved population.

Since the summer of 2010 Fun & Fit 4 Life has provided summer day camps (2-3 weeks in duration) at no expense to over 250 youth (5-17 years of age) participants. Texas State University students preparing to be teachers and coaches provide fun-filled physical activity experiences for our campers. Counselors working at the Texas State Center for P-16 Initiatives engage the campers in exciting college-readiness activities.
Throughout the school year, Fun & Fit 4 Life sponsors physical activity and wellness events in the community. Fun & Fit 4 Life also assisted in securing city funding to improve the Conway neighborhood park so children and families could be physically active in a safe neighborhood environment.
