Each year our 5th graders travel to the Collin County Adventure Camp, located in Anna, TX. They spend three days and two nights at the camp, exploring an outdoor lifestyle that revolves around hiking, canoeing, fishing, personal reflection, and more. The camp teaches a curriculum that is aligned with the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills), while also integrating social studies, reading, writing, and math.For more information on the camp itself, just follow this link: http://www.ymcadallas.org/locations/collin_county_adventure_camp/outdoor_education/
