Family Camp


Periwinkle Family Camp is a weekend (Friday afternoon – Sunday morning) overnight camp held twice a year for pediatric cancer patients treated at Texas Children’s Hospital and their families. The patient must be between the ages of 5 and 16 years. Siblings can be as young as 2 years old to attend Periwinkle Family Camp. Camp is free of charge to all campers.

The health and safety of the community, our campers, volunteers and staff, is our priority. So we will continue to evaluate programming options, mitigation strategies and what modifications may need to be put in place. All programs are subject to change if/as conditions warrant due to COVID-19.
