Texas Lions Camp is a residential camping facility for children with physical disabilities, type 1 diabetes and cancer. The Camp is located on over 500 acres in the beautiful Texas Hill Country in Kerrville, and is designed to introduce the "Can Do" philosophy to children dealing with special medical conditions.

Children with special needs from all over the State of Texas are invited to attend one of 9 weeks, which we hope will become one of their life-long childhood memories. A week designed for fun, exploration and challenge.
Camp is Free to all campers and their parents. Transportation to the camp will be furnished. We request that the parents attend the Friday evening Closing Program and pick their camper up.

Club Fundraisers

Our primary fundraiser is the Ratliff Stadium Concession Stand Project. We hold a contract with Ector County ISD and operate the concessions for all events throughout the year. This is done with the assistance of the Texas Scholars Program. If you are a student interested in service time go to: for further contact information or email our coordinator, Veronica Barry at

The Rose Day Project is the clubs' Spring fundraiser. Members sell roses by the dozen to be delivered and at a great price. Sales begin after Valentine's Day and end in the later part of March. Delivery is usually in mid April. The money raised enables us to expand our community and Lions Camp giving. This can only be accomplished with the support of our community. Please buy Roses!
