"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!

TLC is Under Construction

It has been a long time in planning, but we are finally underway with Phase I of TLC's plan to revitalize our campus to meet future needs. Based upon the 2017 Master Plan for revitalization, the Board of Directors gave the "greenlight" to proceed with construction during the February 2021 Board Meeting.

Phase I of construction includes:

  1. Demolition of Bunkhouse 1
  2. Demolition of Bunkhouse 2
  3. Demolition of Real Dormitory
  4. Construction of BH 1
  5. Construction of BH 2
  6. Expansion of the Eagle, Nature Trail

According to Stephen Mabry, President & CEO, construction officially began immediately following camp this year and is planned to be substantially complete on June 10, 2022. "The Lions of Texas and all of us at Texas Lions Camp are excited to be moving forward to upgrade our facilities. I am learning what it must have felt like to those involved in founding the camp in 1949. The task was monumental - seemingly impossible - important for the future and happening in the midst of a global pandemic (polio). Providing a safe place for an ever expanding population of children who need the experiences that are uniquely delivered at TLC is a mission worthy of investing our time, talent and treasure," said Mabry.

Stephen is quick to add that it is not too late to get involved. "If it has ever been in your heart to leave a legacy at TLC, there is no better time or opportunity to do just that through one of our many naming opportunities." There is a place for most every budget to plug in and get involved - to learn more, just click the button below.

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 2021. 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!
