About the Texas Brigades Cadet Selection Process
Admission is COMPETITIVE. All applications submitted before the March 15th deadline are pooled by camp preferences and graded by each camp's committee. Applications are "blind", meaning no identifying information is provided to the committees prior to selection. The quality of an applicant's essay questions is important! Depending on each camp's capacity, the top 20 - 30 applicants are selected and will be notified of their acceptance on or before April 15th, 2020.
Required Paperwork & Payment
If you are selected to attend camp, you must secure your spot at camp with a $100 non-refundable deposit, which will be applied toward your $500 camp tuition.
