Texas Lions Camp Seeks Scholarship Sponsors to Benefit Summer Staff of 2023

Kerrville, TX - April 13, 2023. Texas Lions Camp (TLC) is pleased to announce that the scholarship sponsor's portal to benefit the summer staff of 2023 is now open. TLC is seeking sponsors to underwrite scholarships which are typically awarded in $500-$1,000 increments to benefit domestic staff members, and travel stipends in any amount to benefit international staff.

I am very proud to offer this scholarship program to our summer staff and will tell you that it is an indispensible component of our ability to maintain and recruit high quality staff members each year. Our Summer Staff members work incredibly hard and the dedication that our staff members put in every day to make a positive impact on the lives of the children we serve is unparalleled in the camping industry. These scholarships and stipends are just one small way that we can show our appreciation and support for them.

I received a scholarship the summer I worked for TLC as a summer counselor, and I can tell you first-hand what a difference that any amount of support can make in the life of a college student. I am grateful to all of the donors who make these scholarships possible for our staff.

Lions Clubs, families, individuals and organizations that are interested in sponsoring and presenting a scholarship or travel stipend can visit to learn more about the scholarship program and to make their pledge. The pledge form is simple to complete and allows donors to choose the amount they wish to contribute.

If you have questions that cannot be answered by what has been provided online, please contact Karen-Anne King, Vice-President of Summer Camps or a member of the Program Team at (830) 896-8500.

Respectfully yours,

Stephen S. Mabry
