Perea attends summer camp

Each summer, as parents begin searching for summertime activities for their children, often, the choices are limited for parents whose children have disabilities. However, thanks to the Lions Clubs of Texas, many children with physical disabilities can look forward to an experience that all children dream about _ going to summer camp! The Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville offers special camping programs that serve children who have physical disabilities and diabetes.

This summer, Jesseca Perea of Pecos attended the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville; Jesseca was sponsored by Gilbert S. Abila of the Pecos Downtown Lions Club.

The Texas Lions Camp offers camping sessions to children ages seven through 16 who have visual, hearing or physical disabilities. The camp offers a wide variety of activities for campers' enjoyment, including arts and crafts, field sports, riding horses, swimming, theater, and camping out overnight. All activities are adapted so that each child can succeed. The camp is a non-profit organization, funded by the Lions of Texas and private donations. Children attend the camp at no cost to themselves or their families.

Further information and camper applications may be obtained by contacting a Lions Club member in your area or by contacting the Texas Lions Camp at P.O. Box 290247, Kerrville, Texas 78029-0247; V/TDD (830)-896-8500; fax: (830)-896-3666.
