It’s no secret that we think Austin is an awesome place for kids to grow up. And Camp 512 agrees 100%. This summer camp is designed to get kids in grades K-8 out exploring our lovely city through plenty of exciting adventures and fun.

Camp 512 lets kids dive into Austin’s rich history, cultural diversity, and plethora of natural wonders. Their hands-on approach to discovery will leaves children in awe of their hometown. Experienced teachers lead small groups with a 1:4 teacher/student ratio on learning adventures in the form of exciting daily field trips.
