Welcome to Texas Lions Camp On-line!

TLC by the Sea - April 10-12, 2015

Take me to the meeting website now!

Registration is now open for TLC by the Sea, a new and intimate medical training seminar, designed both for individuals of all ages as well as for the whole family. "I spoke to someone just this week who had just received a diagnosis that their 11 year-old daughter is type-1 diabetic, said Stephen Mabry, CEO of TLC. They were on their way home from the holidays, and without warning or permission, found themselves in the emergency room awaiting results from tests.

The body of knowledge that is needed to manage a sudden diagnosis can seem overwhelming and rightfully so - there is a great deal to know and limited time in which to learn it.

With healthcare costs at an all-time high, and accessibility to physicians a challenge, the opportunity to have quality education in a small learning group is both valuable and unique. This one-of-a-kind weekend has been designed for everyone, whether as a single, family unit or extended family unit, newly diagnosed or an "ole-hand" at managing your diabetes, you will not want to miss this event.

Join us at the fabulous Moody Gardens in Galveston, Texas on April 10-12, 2015 for TLC by the Sea.

Mattress Drive

“During TLC’s Semi-Annual Board Meeting, I opened a ‘mattress drive’ to replace TLC’s bedding for the kiddos and made an appeal to the Board to kick things off,” said TLC’s CEO Stephen Mabry. The Board donated more than $2,000 on the spot to begin our drive.

TLC’s selected vendor is offering us mattresses at $100 each. With the kick-off of this drive, I am inviting those who would like to purchase a mattress or mattresses to join us in this effort. For a gift of $100 or $150 you can provide bedding for TLC’s kiddos to enjoy this summer and beyond.

Here is our goal:

355 Mattresses x 100 = $35,500

Specs: Our needs include an anti-microbial, So-Flux cover with dimmensions of 38"x74"x7" with an included inner-spring. Since our needs are specific, only cash donations are being accepted, with the exception of factory-direct, bulk donations that might be offered by industry or wholesalers.

If you would like to join us in this effort, please send your check made out to Texas Lions Camp, Inc. and write “Mattress Drive” on the memo line or in a separate letter.

I hope that you will choose to join us and invite others to join as well. Happy Camping!

Picnics Registration - 2015 Now Open

As is customary, picnic registration for TLC will open at Midnight on October 1, 2014. Since the registrants are then selected for their dates by lottery, it is no longer necessary nor advantageous to register at mignight (which we hope will be a blessing to our volunteers). Requests will be taken through October 7, 2014 after which time the lottery will be administered and dates awarded.

For all of those interested in providing a 2015 picnic for the kiddos, please review the policy and procedures, which will answer any qustions that you may have about the process.

To get started, open an account, login and fill out the three forms (about 3-5 minutes). Even if you registered last year, you will need to open a new account for the 2015 season and then register for your selected events.

Work-Weekend Registration -2015 Now Open

TLC is blessed to have a tremendous outpouring of support from Lions Clubs, Leo Clubs, Churches, Boy & Girl Scout Troops, Civic Clubs, corporations and others that "roll up their sleeves" to work in order to prepare the TLC Campus to receive kiddos.

TLC will host three workdays in 2015 in order to prepare the campus for the arrival of our campers. Normally these will be held on the first Saturday of March, April and May; however, this year Easter will fall on that weekend in April.
