Highland Lakes Camp and Conference Center


"Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I might remember. Involve me and I will understand." -- Chinese Proverb

At Highland Lakes, we believe in experiential learning -- learning by doing-- and that there is no better place for it than the great outdoors. We put this idea to practice in both our dynamic Outdoor Education program and in our creative and challenging Team-Building and Development Workshops.

Outdoor Education

The outdoor classroom provides an ideal setting for students to enjoy the experience of learning by exploration and discovery. Our belief is that an outdoor education program should challenge a student intellectually, socially, and physically. We seek to accomplish this through a variety of Academic and Adventure courses specifically designed to meet both your class needs as well as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) requirements.


Team Building and Development Workshops

Ideal for leadership teams, staff development, or corporate retreats, these programs focus on challenging your group in the areas of team communication, cooperation, trust, leadership, and listening skills. Our facilitators will guide your team in a one-to-two day experience that fosters a sense of community through creative activities and challenge elements designed specifically for you.
