No school? No problem! When your child is out of school, send them packing¿to McKinney Roughs. Students will start the day with a hike down to the Colorado River where we will enjoy a snack and the scenery. After the hike back to base camp, we will break out the GPS units and learn how they work and how to use them. Once our skills are up to par, we will test them with another hike; this time marking waypoints along our journey. When this task is completed, we will return to base camp to plot our waypoints onto a map. After lunch, the group will proceed to the Challenge Course for some "air time" with the help of two rock walls and two zip lines! To wrap up the day, we will enjoy some time on the water with a raft trip down the Colorado River. All activities are supervised by trained staff. An Austin shuttle is available for $15 per child. Shuttle location will be LCRA's General Office Complex at 3700 Lake Austin Blvd. Morning pickup will be at 7:30 a.m. and evening drop off will be at 5:30 p.m.
