Summer Camps Selection Process

Acceptance to a Texas Brigades Summer Camp is a competitive process. Applications submitted by the deadline (March 15th) will be collected, stripped of identifying information, and pooled by camp preference. Each Camp Committee will review these blind applications and rank them. Depending on the camp facility capacity, the top 20-30 applicants for each camp are selected. Selected applicants will be notified of their acceptance by April 15th.

Applications submitted after the deadline (March 15th) are considered late, and will automatically be added to the General Waitlist.

Upon selection, the applicant will be required to submit the following:

  1. Written Confirmation of Attendance (by May 1st)
  2. $100 Non-Refundable Deposit (by May 1st)
  3. Paperwork & Tuition Balance (by May 15th for June camps, by June 15th for July camps)

Missing any of the deadlines above will automatically move your application to a waitlist.

Summer Camps Waitlist Process

Your application will be placed on a waitlist if you:

  • You submit your application after the March 15th deadline
  • Are not selected for your Top 3 Camp preferences
  • Cannot attend the camp you are selected for
  • Miss a Deadline (i.e. deposit, paperwork, tuition)

In the application, you are asked to choose a waitlist preference from the following:

  • “1st Choice ONLY”
    • Your application will only be considered should a spot open up at your 1st choice camp, even if a spot becomes available at another camp.
    • It is unlikely, but still possible, that spots will become available our more popular camps.
  • “My 3 Preferred Camps ONLY”
    • Your application will be added to the waitlists of all three of your preferred camps (as indicated in your application).
  • “First Available (ALL CAMPS)”
    • Your application will be added to our general waitlist, should a spot at ANY camp become available.
    • Preference on the general waitlist will be given to those applications submitted by the deadline vs. late applications.
