"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 Applications

Camper Applications have been put on hold until February 8, 2021 which will provide additional time to assess public policy and conditions for opening Summer Camp this year. If you would like to prepare for making your child's application, the online application will be unchanged from year’s prior (when it opens) and will be just as easy as it has been before; here are some tips to be ready:

  1. Have all of your kiddo's information ready (Emergency Contacts, Insurance Information, etc...)
  2. Follow the steps and save your work (you may return as often as necessary until the entire process has been completed)
  3. Contact your Lion Sponsor to have them ready to sign the form ASAP
When applying, please use the email address you check the most because that is where you will find information about your kiddo's session.

Polar Bear Challenge Update

As of January 4, 2020, a grand total of $230,037.45 has been donated through the Polar Bear Challenge. This places TLC within $20,000 of reaching its pre-covid goal of $250,000 for the project.The 28th Annual Polar Bear Challenge at Mo Ranch was not held as scheduled on Friday's, New Years Day out of an abundance of caution and renewed concerns regarding a rise in area Covid-19 cases. Rather, the Polar Bear King & Queen, Kent Basinger and Terry Hawkins, will be taking the plunge for all at Texas Lions Camp during the Semi-annual Board Meeting in February. The event will be live-streamed for those who wish to join virtually.

"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.
