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. This week-long summer camp is 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 to give every camper the opportunity to grow in independence and self esteem,  leaving Camp Periwinkle a stronger survivor. Activities include swimming, horseback riding, archery, arts & crafts, exploring nature, sports, ropes course, biking, wheel chair basketball, fishing, giant swing, 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. Full medical staff is on duty 24 hours a day. Camp Periwinkle is free for all participants. Camp Periwinkle is currently held at the barrier-free Camp For All facility located in Burton, TX (near Brenham).
