Collin County Adventure Camp is the site of the Plano ISD overnight science instructional camp, offering all Plano ISD fifth grade students two and a half days of experiential outdoor learning. But for Plano ISD fifth graders there is something special about swinging in a hammock, taking notes in the sunshine and doing experiments after sunset. So we asked a few of them what is their favorite activity. "I liked spending time in my cabin," said Natalie from Mitchell. Rohan from Centennial said his favorites were "archery and the forest adventure because we saw a lot of plants;" Damian agreed with him about archery. More Centennial student favorites were the race and canoeing. Christian said "S'mores!" "My favorite part of camp? I liked everything!" said Gianna fifth grader at Mitchell. According to Outdoor Education Coordinator Keith Griffin, “Camp is a time of making memories that last a lifetime, and for some children it means some firsts – like canoeing and campfires. But it’s more than fun. Camp consists of learning-based activities that cannot be duplicated in a classroom. Outdoor learning is hands-on with emphasis on problem solving, teamwork and collaboration." Photo gallery.
