TEXAS LIONS CAMP

The Colleyville Lions Club is ready to sponsor children who will benefit from attendance at Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville, TX for one week. This is such a wonderful experience for campers. For more information about the camp please visit the Texas Lions Camp website: lionscamp.com

If you know of a child that might benefit from the Texas Lions Camp please contact our local Colleyville Lions Camp President, David Phelps at 972-467-7319 or by email: phelps-david@swbell.net and he will get you in touch with those that can assist with registration. Help us help a child experience a fantastic week at Texas Lions Camp.

Our 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. Texas Lions Camp is staffed by professional medical personnel and professionally trained camp counselors that are dedicated to meeting the needs of children attending camp.

Our 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 anyother time in our history. Over 1,500 children per summer attend Texas Lions Camp.
