TLC Camp, Inc.

Sponsored by the Lombard Junior Women's Club, TLC Camp, Inc. was established in 1983.

TLC Camp is a non profit organization that's goal is to provide a fun-filled week of camp activities for children with cancer and a sibling. The children are ages 5 through 13. What makes this camp unique is that it is the only camp in the state of Illinois that allows a sibling to share in the experience.

TLC Camp is normally held the Monday through Friday immediately following Father's Day. However, due to COVID-19 precautions, our 2020 camp week could not take place.

 

We are currently hoping to celebrate our TLC Camper families with a care package this coming June and we are planning on a family celebration of some sort in early Fall --- hopefully a carnival type of event. These activities are in the planning stages, more information to follow. If you have any questions regarding TLC Camp or our activities, please contact us at tlc@tlccamp.org -- thank you and stay safe and healthy!

A continuing goal is to have each camper attend free of charge. To meet that goal,    TLC funding relies on donations from civic organizations, churches, corporations and private individuals. TLC Camp is a 501(c)3 organization, therefore all contributions are tax-deductible

“TLC Camp is such an amazing program not only for our child who had cancer, but to also include his siblings whose lives have also been altered by the diagnosis is amazing. The other kids watch the “cancer kid” get so much attention due to everything they are going through and TLC Camp brings them in and includes them and makes them feel special too! My kids look forward to Camp every year and talk about the experiences and memories all year long! It is such a special connection for the siblings to have and share and we love everyone who has a part in putting it together and make it happen!”
