During the Semi-Annual Board Meeting held on Saturday, February 6, 2021, President & CEO, Stephen Mabry outlined for the Board of Directors a structured approach to offer TLC's summer program and facilities to families for the very first time in the organization's history. "I can't tell you how many times, I have heard siblings, parents and other extended family members say during check-in, 'I wish I could come to camp!' Well, now is their time," said Mabry.
COVID-19 has demanded that the world's population, find ways to socially distance and to avoid large gatherings and despite the release of new vaccines, the need to continue non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPI's) - such as minimizing exposure to others - is going to be with us for the foreseeable future, and certainly through the Summer of 2021.
"I told you at this time last year," said Stephen, "that given Time, Planning and Care, TLC would be back. Well, we have had time to evaluate, plan and mount what we believe to be both a reasonable and creative response and the entire organization, from top to bottom, is excited to be in a position to offer, TLC-4-Families for the Summer of 2021."
Please be patient as we put the finishing touches on this dynamic change to operations. Keep your attention focused here at our website and upon our social media outlets for additional releases and information about the program as well as how to register. Registration will open soon, and I anticipate the response will quickly fill the limited spaces that will be available. Until then, thank you for your continued belief in and support of TLC.

During the Semi-Annual Board Meeting, the Polar Bear Challenge was undertaken by six brave souls, lead by Polarbear King, Kent Basinger and Queen, Terry Hawnkins who took the plunge into TLC's icey swimming pool. During the meeting, final donations were delivered bringing the grand total to a whopping $310,000.
"I have an exhaustive list of people to thank for the many efforts and generous fundraising success achieved as a result of everyone pulling together to make this effort a 'roaring' success," said Stephen Mabry, President & CEO of TLC. "A very special shout-out to our friends and partners at Mo Ranch for their generous support and selection of TLC as this year's beneficiary.
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.
