Camp Periwinkle – 30th Anniversary

From August 4, 2013 to August 10, 2013

Our signature program for 29 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 blood disorders 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.
