"Self-esteem is one of the most important attributes we can possess. It's also one of the most valuable gifts a person can model for another. TLC is so much more than individual achievement - it is lending your story to help others value theirs."
- Stephen S. Mabry, President & CEO
Off of the sideline and into the game! Texas Lions Camp invites children to try things they may have thought were out of their reach - all in a safe and inviting atmosphere.
Children both need and want healthy, adult support. Since 1949, Texas Lions Camp has been inviting children to make friends, have fun and get involved in a safe and supportive environment.
Nothing builds self-esteem faster than taking a leap of faith and winning! TLC helps children succeed and learn what it means to take "healthy" risks. Join us, and we will take that leap of faith together!

Summer Camp Registration


2023 Will See a Return to Traditional Youth Camps, AND...

During the Annual Board Meeting, President & CEO, Stephen Mabry, discussed the successes of TLC's program, which has been unapologetically aimed directly at families during the summers of 2021 and 2022 . "The family unit is facing more challenges than at any other point in my lifetime" said Stephen, "and TLC's response has been commensurate to offer support and relief". Stephen elaborated, "that our mission has been simple over the past two years, "to draw the family unit closer together, through shared experience" and as our after-action evaluation from our participants demonstrates, we have done that with pin-point accuracy.

"Those who know me best, know me to be an 'AND' person, meaning part of my next-leveling of TLC is to go the extra mile wherever possible and offer that next thing to inspire and delight our constituents", said Stephen. While TLC's program is subject to public policy, both at home and abroad, the Board and I fully intend to see a return to traditional youth camps in 2023 and will offer week-long, residential youth camps for children who have physical disabilities during the month of June, type-1 diabetes for two weeks of the first half of July and family camps for the remaining two weeks of July.

As is our long-time practice, Registration for Camp will open on January 3, 2023 and will continue until all sessions are full. Start making your plans today, Summer Camp 2023 is around the corner, and we are already making preparations to warmly welcome your children and you home.

TLC Times


For those who will be unable to attend in-person camps this year, TLC is excited to announce our remote options for Summer Camp 2022. In this new program, campers will receive to their home address, a 4-page newspaper by US Mail that will be filled with fun articles, activities, puzzles, and more.

Articles will be related to TLC, as well as camp activities, summer-time fun and a glance into camp and TLC staff. The articles will have QR codes allowing campers and families to link to a project online to create and engage in. Activities will be available at any time, so there are no time constraints.

The TLC Times Newspapers will be sent 3 times during the summer. Within these deliveries, campers will also receive exclusive stickers, t-shirt iron-ons, and other fun items. This summer, read all about it in the TLC Times!
