Join us June 20th - 24th for TLC Camp 2016! Head on over to the registration page for applications.
TLC Camp, Inc. was established in 1983. It's purpose 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. The Lombard Junior Women's Club sponsors TLC Camp. Lombard Juniors is a volunteer organization that has been in service since 1930. Both Lombard Junior Women's Club and TLC Camp are not-for-profit. The camp costs the Lombard Junior Women's Club approximately $500 per camper. 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.
The majority of the camp staff are members of the Lombard Junior Women’s Club, their families, and other volunteers from surrounding communities. Qualified high school students are trained to assist every adult counselor in the supervision of a group of campers. Volunteer nurses are present at all times to meet all medical needs. Each year at camp, the medical staff provides an orientation for all camp volunteers and parents. Good Samaritan Hospital, the local paramedics and the Lombard Police are alerted about the camp. Our Medical Director is a physician in practice at Rush-Presbyterian St. Lukes Medical Center.
Come join us for the Giving Dupage Human Race on Saturday April 30th.
