The Leos were on the road last weekend for an overnight road trip to Kerrville for the Texas Lions Camp Work Day. There was a lot of work needed to prepare the camp for this summers activities and the Colleyville Lions & Leos were tasked with splitting firewood for the nightly summer bonfires where the camp kids celebrate their daily accomplishments.
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, 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.
