Anna, Texas (March 8, 2021) – Bruce Evans, Professor Emeritus of the University of Dallas College of Business, and Sally Evans, retired teacher in the field of environmental education, volunteer, and Board Member for Collin County Adventure Camp, made a generous donation to create an endowment fund for the camp located in Anna. This endowment will provide additional funding for Collin County Adventure camp to support scholarships and camp improvements annually through the interest from the endowment fund.

“I give my salute to the YMCA’s mission and for giving kids and adults time to learn, play, and rest. Our goal with this endowment is to create opportunity for future generations to experience the positive life lessons from attending Collin County Adventure Camp. My hope in this endowment it to promote more interest and support for Collin County Adventure Camp,” said Sally Evans.

Collin County Adventure Camp opened its gates with a dream to bring the outdoor learning experience to children of Collin County and the surrounding area. Residents passed a $26 million bond to build camp and when construction was complete, Collin County partnered with the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas, who manages camp. Camp opened in 2006 and has expanded programming of Outdoor Education to include 10 weeks of Summer Camp programs and year-round Group Retreats. 

“The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas and Collin County Adventure Camp sincerely appreciate Bruce and Sally’s generous support in making camp a community, character-building, skill development and healthy experience in spirit, mind and body for ALL,” said Neil Rosenbaum, Executive Director, Collin County Adventure Camp.
