Review for Camp Tonkawa Outdoor Learning Center, Collinsville, TX, USA
Camp Tonkawa is a welcome trip back in time and back into nature. My American Heritage Girls Troop had an amazing experience learning about Native American culture and nature awareness. We went back for horsemanship camp, too. I appreciate how the camp tailors activities to match our badge requirements, but I absolutely love that Camp Tonkawa gets my girls to willingly put down cell phones and social media in exchange for an authentic experience in getting their hands dirty, caring for animals, listening to the natural world around them and appreciating all the experiences the outdoors has to offer. When we're at camp we're away from our everyday worlds and are fully immersed in the real world of nature. Camp Tonkawa has a way of teaching respect for our earth and each other not just with what they say and do, but with the very way the entire camp is set up and run. This is a special place that lets kids (and adults) play and learn the way we all used to-by being outside!
