More Information for you!
ATX Kids Club is one of the most adventuresome programs in Austin with a different educational field trip every day! Our campers learn so much about Austin and how to explore their own city. Our 5 day/week program includes traveling on CapMetro to our favorite destinations. Average Group: 6 children to 1 camp counselor.
Register at one of our 4 convenient drop off/pick up locations: Mueller Park, Pease Park, Vic Mathias Shores, or Garrison Park.
Children will travel with a camp counselor via CapMetro to their scheduled destination, explore, enjoy a picnic lunch, explore some more, and then return back to their drop off/pick up location. The schedule of activities are planned in advance but subject to change due to weather. There is a great deal of walking, with a focus on fitness and healthy eating during our camp.
Kids have more fun when their friends join the adventure! Refer a friend for one week for a $25 credit ($50 credit for a two week sign up).
