Carry-Along Collin

Carry-Along Collin

Historical education is very important to the Collin County Historical Commission, and one of the entertaining ways they teach about our local history is through their award-winning Carry-Along Collin children’s summer program that adults also enjoy!

Take a look at this year’s program and see what you’ve been missing:
2012 Carry-Along Collin Program

Carry-Along Collin is in its sixth year, and is produced in cooperation with all county public libraries, museums and public and private school organizations. Through it, kids and adults can visit all the local museums, as well as engage in day-long summer camps and, geo-caching for historical sites!

Because of its ingenuity, the Texas State Historical Commission awarded the Collin County Historical Commission their prestigious annual Award of Excellence in Preserving History. Through Carry-Along Collin, thousands of local schoolchildren and parents have discovered our rich local history. Come along with us!
