About Us

Texas Brigades is a collection of wildlife and natural resource-focused leadership development programs for youth. Besides our W.I.L.D. and Experience programs, we have our popular 5-day summer camp programs: Bobwhite Brigades (Rolling Plains and South Texas), Buckskin Brigades (North Texas and South Texas), Bass Brigade, Waterfowl Brigade, Ranch Brigade, and Coastal Brigade. Cadets are introduced to habitat management, honing their communication skills, and development of a land ethic. The state’s leading wildlife and fisheries biologists and land managers serve as instructors and mentors. Our mission is to educate and empower youth with leadership skills and knowledge in wildlife, fisheries, and land stewardship to become conservation ambassadors for a sustained natural resource legacy across Texas.

Make A Donation

The Texas Brigade Legacy Fund is a unique opportunity to create a stable and long-lasting future for Texas Brigades. Contributions to this fund are used to establish the financial foundation that allows us to operate. 

Even before the last cadets have left camp, we have already made contact and established a relationship that will support and encourage them – they have joined the Texas Brigades family. We want these tremendous opportunities to become a legacy for future generations. Texas Brigades allows youth to discover their “voice” and gives them a deeper confidence to share it in the world. Please help us secure this future for Texas youth by donating to the Texas Brigades Legacy Fund.
