Spending time outdoors fosters happier and healthier children. At Trinity River Audubon Center summer Adventure Camps, we explore and immerse ourselves in the great outdoors, creating memories that last a lifetime. Each day of camp is a new adventure for the students. Students immerse themselves in the great outdoors as they play and discover.
