Spring Lake Outdoor Education Program (SLOEP) is a grant-funded partnership between Texas State University, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and San Marcos Parks and Recreation. Through this program, Texas State students gain experience facilitating outdoor, experiential, education programs for middle school and high school students in San Marcos CISD. Over the last year, student leaders have facilitated outdoor recreation and experiential education programs for over 500 participants. As part of the SLOEP program, students enrolled in the Therapeutic Recreation program work with students from SMCISD’s Discipline Alternative Education program, called Rebound, to facilitate programs that are outcome-driven and intended to enhance coping skills, improve self-esteem, and use recreation activities in the therapeutic process. SLEOP benefits Texas State students and the greater San Marcos community by enhancing the wellness and education of SMCISD students
