Thomasson attends Lions Camp

Thanks to the Lions Club 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, Jessica Thomasson of Pecos attended the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville. She was sponsored by Tom N. Rivera 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. The camp is a nonprofit organization, funded by the Lions of Texas and private donations. Children attended 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. The Texas Lions Camp can also be found on the World Wide Web at
