We have two brilliant sites in Texas, one central near Waco, with vast outdoor space complete with a large lake and creek. The other is situated between Austin and Houston, covered in deer, forests and wilderness.


Blackland Prairies

NCI’s Blackland Prairie site is 500 acres conveniently located between Waco and the DFW area. Within a short drive of the I-35 this site is accessible from so many parts of Texas.  Complete with lakes, creeks and access to the Brazos River this site has it all. The facilities are wonderful and offer the opportunity for a wide range of programing, with wilderness trails perfect for child led exploration.

The cabin space offers large capacities and comfortable bunks. The dining hall is spacious and the food delicious. This is one of our largest sites and we are excited to host our schools here.

New Ulm

Oak Savanah 100s of Deer

Nestled in South Central Texas among the wooded rolling countryside, sits our new NCI site in New Ulm, TX.


From the new dorm rooms, to the lake and large outdoor activity spaces, your students will experience the ideal combination of beauty and charm.


Situated on over 200 acres, students will experience how nature, people and the environment are in tune with one another. We are excited to offer this new Texas location as part of the amazing natural facilities that Nature’s Classroom Institute uses.
