Patients at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus Experience the Joy of Summer Camp

Katy, TX News (July 6, 2017) – Last week, Camp For All 2U brought the joy of summer camp to patients at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus. The program transforms areas of the hospital into camp, providing patients who may not get the experience of camp outside of the hospital the opportunity to enjoy a variety of games and activities. A different theme each day, camp activities included archery, a petting zoo, arts and crafts and much more.

“We are so excited to have Camp For All 2U here at West Campus for the first time,” says Matt Schaefer, president of Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus. “For many of these patients, this is the only opportunity they will have to experience camp this summer due to their current medical condition. To provide them with the chance to temporarily forget what they are going through and just enjoy being a kid is what it’s all about.”

Camp For All 2U at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus was generously sponsored by Wood Group. For more information about Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus, visit texaschildrens.org/westcampus. For more information about Camp For All, visit www.campforall.org.”
