The Texas Camel Corps was established to educate the public on the historic use of
camels in America in the 19th century.
The forms this education takes on are camel treks, historic reenactments and school, library, zoo and museum
programs. Other business endeavors include featuring our camels as part of faith-based or cultural events as
well as TV/Film production.
At the heart of it all, though, is education. Whether it’s the perpetuation of the unique role camels played in
settling Western America, utilizing the camels as a classroom for environmental/social studies or trekking over the
very ground that the historic US Army Camel Corps explored in the 1850’s and 1860’s the driving goal of the Texas
Camel Corps is to share our camels in one of a kind settings that the public will enjoy and remember.
