The Texas Brigades offers 3 types of Outdoor Camps for our youth. Each camp not only teaches the cadets about wildlife conservation, but also about how to become a leader in today’s society.

All students with an interest in biology, wildlife, fisheries, conservation, or the outdoors are encouraged to apply.
