Outdoor Adventures Camping Trip

Camping Trip web

Dallas Park and Recreation Department partnered with Texas Parks and Wildlife and Texas Outdoor Family to take 14 kids camping at Cedar Hill State Park over the weekend.

It’s all part of the Dallas Park and Recreation Department’s Outdoor Adventures program, which launched last summer thanks to a Community Outdoor Outreach Program grant. The grant provides funding to local governments and non-profits who are introducing under-served populations to environmental and conservation programs, as well as Texas Parks and Wildlife

Department’s mission-oriented outdoor activities.

As you can see the kids had a fun filled weekend and enjoyed the outdoors without any electronics.

“We were off the grid and electronics were not allowed on this particular camping trip,” said April Garcia, Dallas Park and Recreation Department Supervisor. “At the end of the trip, each child was awarded with a certificate and the kids pledged to get outdoors, explore their natural surroundings and respect our environment.”

During the trip the kids set up their tents, hiked, participated in geocaching and enjoyed s’mores over the campfire.
