The Discovery Program at Camp Allen provides "hands on" educational experiences that enhance classroom learning.    The experiences are integrated into a complete program that helps participants gain a well-rounded understanding of the current issues, environmental respect, history, and human relationships.  

Study Opportunities: 

  • Aquatic Biology
  • Forest Ecology
  • Conservation 
  • Organic Gardening 
  • Astronomy
  • Orienteering
  • Outdoor Living Skills
  • Texas Living History 

In an effort to provide the ideal program for each group, several elements (length of stay, student needs, requirements, class blocks, etc.) are determined cooperatively by the classroom teachers and Discovery Instructors.  These tailored Discovery Program sessions range from one-day programs with six hours of instruction to four-day programs with 32 hours of instruction.
