Camp Description

At Texas Lions Camp, we view camp as a time for campers to explore, exercise curiosity, and discover new interests and abilities. We want campers to attempt things that would normally be out of their reach, such as riding a horse, or rock climbing on our ropes course, or just being part of a team.

Almost every activity at TLC requires more than one person to accomplish – the premise being that we are not meant to be alone in life and can accomplish great things when we work together.

Not only is participation in the context of a team an important life skill, but it is a pathway to the self-esteem, boosting multiplier of helping others accomplish their goals. Almost seven decades of experience has taught that children who invest in the success of others experience a heightened sense of self-worth and a renewed sense of purpose.

Our campers graduate week after week, having been introduced to actively pursuing friendships, goals, teamwork and a passion we have found translates to life-long lessons for leading successful and purposeful lives.

Why are so many people talking about Texas Lions Camp?
Because it is an amazing experience. Texas Lions Camp provides a traditional summer camp experience to children with physical disabilities, at no cost. We are looking for high energy, driven staff. Our goal is to teach campers that they can do anything they put their minds to by being there for them and challenge them to try new and exciting things. We help kids with Cerebral Palsy to climb the rock wall and blind children to shoot archery. No need to have any special requirements to apply, our Staff members will have in-depth training in working with physical disabilities,type 1 diabetes and Down syndrome. The facilities include air-conditioned bunkhouses, beach-entry pool, beautiful dining hall, and covered riding arena.
