Our signature program for over 30 years, Camp Periwinkle has earned the reputation of being the “Camp of All Camps!” among campers and counselors. Camp Periwinkle is a week-long summer camp filled with joy for children with cancer and their siblings from Texas Children’s Cancer Center.
The goal of Camp Periwinkle is to provide a safe, emotionally healing and fantastic adventure that gives every camper the opportunity to grow in independence and self esteem and leave Camp Periwinkle a stronger survivor.
Activities include swimming, horseback riding, archery, arts & crafts, exploring nature, campfires, ropes course, biking, wheel chair basketball, volleyball, baseball, dances and much more. Additional special programming includes the opening day carnival; cooking with world class chefs from Houston and Austin area restaurants; Glamour Shots; Spa Day and Olympics Day.
Children on therapy can continue treatment at camp. A full medical staff is on duty 24 hours a day.
Camp Periwinkle is currently held at the barrier free Camp For All facility located near Brenham, TX.
Camp Periwinkle is free for all participants.
Camper applications for Camp Periwinkle will be available in March 2017.
