There is nothing quite like the feel of a bass tugging on your line! If you love fishing in Texas, or just being out on the water, then you should join us for Bass Brigade! You will learn a lot about the different fish species and ways to improve their environment, as well as protect and improve the water quality of Texas’ waterways, ponds, lakes, bays, and estuaries.

Join us for the next camp

Bass Brigade is a unique educational program designed to educate high school age youth (ages 13-17) about aquatic ecosystems and natural resource management. For five days, high-achieving youth study botany (terrestrial and aquatic plants), biology, river, pond, and lake management, water quality and quantity strategies, and land and water stewardship. There are also activities involving photography, journaling, and art. Fishing skills, safety, and ethics are also covered. The other major components of the Bass Brigade are life-skills, such as leadership, team-building, critical-thinking, public speaking, and communication.
