Thomasson attends camp in Kerrville
Each summer, as parents begin searching for summertime activities for thier
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
This summer, Jessica Thomasson of Pecos attended the Texas Lions Club
in Kerrville. Jessica was sponsored by Paul A. Hinojos of the Pecos Lions
The Texas Lions Camp offers camping sessions to children ages sevent
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
