Summer Camps Cancelled (COVID-19)

In order to ensure the safety of our wonderful community, we will be cancelling our much anticipated Camp BRIT and Summer Family Camp. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of this and are saddened ourselves to have to cancel. We feel it is the best option to protect campers, their families, and our staff.

For those who have already completed payment, the following list provides options for your registration fees: 

  1. We can issue a full refund to you through the mail. (It should arrive in the next 7-10 business days)
  2. You can donate all of (or a portion of) your registration fee to BRIT’s Education Team. With the postponement of our revenue producing programs during COVID-19, donations are especially important right now and are greatly appreciated.
  3. You can use all of (or a portion of) your registration fee as credit to apply towards a GROW membership to receive free admission to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden (expected to open in June) and reciprocal admission to 300 gardens throughout the nation. Click here to learn more about our membership offerings.

Please email Rachel at rlincoln@brit.org to let us know how you would like to proceed with your registration fees and we can get the process started.

We are missing our community and hope to see you all again when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are providing free online videos and activities for outdoor inquiry along with reduced rate online workshops. Click here to learn more.
