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.
Texas Lions Camp was founded on the principle that every child is deserving of a happy childhood. By inviting children to participate in activities they may have otherwise believed out of their reach, we hope to help them improve their self-esteem and step into their life's calling.
Join our community of people around the world helping kids succeed.
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!
Texas Lions Camp is built for people like me. I live in a world built for you 51 weeks out of the year, but for one week every year I live in a place built for me. It's heaven on earth for kids like us.
