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:
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.
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.

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!
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.
