Texas Lions Camp Work Day

Fun times serving at the Texas Lions Camp

A small group of Lions were able to attend a work day in preparation for the upcoming summer camps.  These camps serve children with disabilities ranging from type 1 diabetes to cancer. Over 600 volunteers were there that day serving in various capacities.  Whether it was clearing brush or getting the putt putt course ready (as you'll see below), these Lions show dedicated service every year to get this 504 acre camp ready for the over 1500 campers it will see this summer.  

If you know of a child that could benefit from attending a camp such as this, please reach out to your local Lions Club and see if they would be able to sponsor them.

About Texas Lions Camp

Their Services

Texas Lions Camp is a residential camping facility for children with physical disabilities, type 1 diabetes and cancer. The Camp is located on over 500 acres in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, and is designed to introduce the "Can Do" philosophy to children dealing with special medical conditions.

Children with special needs from all over the State of Texas are invited to attend one of 9 weeks, which we hope will become one of their life-long childhood memories. A week designed for fun, exploration and challenge.

Their Mission

The primary purpose of the Camp is to provide, without charge, a camp for physically disabled, hearing/vision impaired, and diabetic children from the State of Texas, regardless of race, religion, or national origin. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere wherein campers will learn the "Can Do" philosophy and be allowed to achieve maximum personal growth and self-esteem.

Camp Profile

The Texas Lions Camp is recognized as a non-profit corporation, under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. The Camp is accredited by the American Camping Association, and is licensed by the Texas Department of Health.

History

The Texas Lions Camp was chartered in 1949 in response to the terrible polio epidemic that forever changed the lives of so many Texas children. Since that time, the Texas Lions Camp has dynamically changed to include children who have all manner and types of physical disabilities, diabetes and cancer. Today, we are serving more children than at any other time in our history. Over 1,500 children per summer attend Texas Lions Camp.
