Review for Camp Tonkawa Outdoor Learning Center, Collinsville, TX, USA
Where in North Texas can you sleep in a tipi, ride horses, practice archery, go swimming and kayaking, and learn survival skills like fire starting with tools in nature and what plants you can make a meal of? At Camp Tonkawa Outdoor Learning Center in Collinsville, Texas. This place becomes a home-away-from-home and what you learn here and the memories you make will stay with you. It's a place that makes a person want to unplug from phones and computers and just be in the moment. I have personally been involved with Camp Tonkawa and the family who started it, and who have kept it growing, for the last 12 years. Like any successful organization, the camp has grown and changed but has remained true to its founders' original goal of keeping nature awareness and outdoor education apart of the lives of youth and adults alike. Through youth summer camps, weekend camps for boy scouts or girl scouts, family camps, and day camps for homeschoolers and public school groups Camp Tonkawa plants the seed of a love of the outdoors and agriculture through experiential learning opportunities outside in nature's classroom.
