Perea attends Lions summer camp
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.
She was sponsored by Tom 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 non-profit organization, funded by the Lions of Texas and private
donations. Children attend the camp at no cost to themselves or their families.
