YOLO Campers Posing in the Photo Booth

Celebrating its 20th year, Camp YOLO continues to provide teens with an experience that campers describe as, “the quickest weekend with new friends that become family in a matter of days.” Last weekend The Periwinkle Foundation hosted the largest Camp YOLO to date, serving 143 patients and their siblings treated at the Cancer and Hematology Centers, Cardiology Center, Rheumatology Clinic, Renal Center, Allergy and Immunology Center, and Retrovirology Clinic at Texas Children’s Hospital

This spring, the theme World’s Greatest celebrated Houston’s very own World Series Champions, the Houston Astros. But ask any counselor or volunteer, and they’ll tell you the World’s Greatest can be found in the very campers that spent a weekend growing in community, trying new things such as the ropes course, crafting in the art barn and making the best of every moment despite the rain.
