Texas Brigades Adds First Coastal Camp to Educational Lineup

The camp is now accepting applications for its inaugural class

AUSTIN – This summer, join the Texas Brigade cadets for five days of fun in the sun as they learn about the Texas coast.

The Texas Brigade, a natural resources education and leadership program, is now accepting applications for their new Coastal Brigade Camp. The inaugural camp will be held at the newly updated Sea Scout Base in Galveston July 26 -30.

Coastal Brigade cadets will participate in a number of hands-on activities with guidance from top wildlife and natural resource professionals. Cadets will learn about fish identification techniques, boater and angler safety, photography, conservation and land stewardship. The camp also includes training on coastal habitat management, fisheries management, coastal ecology and saltwater fishing.

All students with an interest in biology, wildlife, fisheries or the outdoors are encouraged to apply. The Coastal Brigade selects 30 of the best and brightest 13-17 year olds from across Texas to attend the camp. Cadets can look forward to trips to nearby state parks, Sea Center Texas and a sea turtle rehabilitation center.

The deadline to apply is March 15. Students can submit their applications online at the Texas Brigade website or by mail. Applicants must commit to conducting a minimum of three educational programs when they return home from Coastal Brigades.
