Camp Periwinkle

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 and Hematology Centers.

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.
