Polar Bear 2018

What Is Polar Bear Weekend?

Polar Bear weekend is December 1-2 and is a weekend camp where 300+ friends from Austin, San Marcos, San Antonio, and more go to camp and have an incredible weekend with their leaders at T Bar M. We try to recreate summer camp over the course of one weekend. It's the best weekend of the fall! You don't want to miss it.

Cost? $125 ($50 non-refundable deposit)
