Review for Camp Tonkawa Outdoor Learning Center, Collinsville, TX, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

CONCERNED ABOUT THE SAFETY - Our troop has been to Camp Tonkawa on 3 separate camp occasions. We loved everything except the outdoor kitchen and food preparation methods. There is no refrigeration, no running water and the conditions of the equipment is highly questionable. We saw raw meat left out on the counter with flies on it and fruit & veggies prepared on cutting boards that were stored outdoors. There is no effective way to santize the cooking utensils, pots, pans, and serving ware. The children are the ones preparing group meals and no one is wearing any gloves. When we checked with the County Health Inspection Services, we were told that they have never done an inspection of the facilities nor are they required to because it is a non-profit organization. Something serious has to happen before they are even allowed to set foot on the premises without the owners consent. Unlikely that will be happening. They are so busy trying to earn money to build a new barn when they should be more concerned about providing a safe environment for all of the kids that come there.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get this place inspected!
