LOCAL COMMUNITY MEMBERS CREATE CAMP ENDOWMENT FOR YMCA COLLIN COUNTY ADVENTURE CAMP
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.
