Where is Brain Chase San Antonio Youth Summer Camp Located?

Brain Chase headquarters is located in Austin, TX, but the summer camp starts right in your home. No need to travel to start your adventure. You just need an internet connection and a mailing address to get set up and start receiving academic activities and clues to the treasure’s location.  You will use our interactive map to track down the treasure’s location.


Who can participate?

Any pre-college student between the ages of 6-16, who are residents of the State of Texas as of June 19, 2017, are eligible to win.


How much does Brain Chase San Antonio Youth Summer Camp Cost? 

Our 7-week summer camp starts at just $69/student. Upgrades are available for an additional cost. Early-bird pricing is available.


What kind of learning will happen during the camp?

We offer 20 different learning activities, from reading and math to cooking and fitness. Your child will select three of them to focus on and complete weekly challenges in throughout the camp. In addition to learning challenges, we will give your students weekly bonus challenges to teach them adventure skills, like map reading and using a compass. And, of course, because this is a treasure hunt, they will learn loads about history, geography, and a lot of other cool stuff.
