Who We Are

We are educators with a passion for the outdoors. Our vision is to provide a quality camp experience for people in the Rio Grande Valley. We are proud to offer a wide range of activities at the historic Lula Sams property in Brownsville, Texas. We have been operating outdoor education and day camp programs since our inception in 2015. We launched overnight summer camp in 2019, and in 2020 we will offer Corporate and weekend retreat programming. We are the only camp of its kind in South Texas and hope that you enjoy exploring our website. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Outdoor Education

We provide adventure-based learning tailored for students, teachers, staff, and administrators. Students spend the day exploring the natural world through activities such as archery, plant and animal identification, team-building, canoeing, and many others.
