22Q Texas will host the 8th annual family camp/retreat on Nov. 3-5, 2017 at Camp For All in Burton, TX. Today we invite you to help change lives by sponsoring a family. Your donation in any amount can sponsor a specific family you chose, or it can go to any family in need. Please help us make this weekend a reality for every person who wants to attend! What makes this camp so special? We recognize that when one person faces a challenge it affects their whole family. Our retreat provides a safe environment for those with 22Q and the families who love them. It's often a life-changing weekend. For many it is the 1st time to meet another family affected by 22Q, and discover that they are not alone. Kids participate in fun, challenging activities, building independence & confidence by doing things they thought were impossible. Parents are empowered, educated and connected with a strong support system. Families bond together and leave with renewed strength and hope. But all of this can only happen with the loyal & generous support of friends like you. The retreat regularly draws more than 100 attendees from Texas and beyond. Retreat expenses for 2017 are expected to exceed $20,000. Families attend at little or no cost, with all meals, lodging & activities provided. This year families will be asked to pay $50 per person to attend the retreat. While this is a small percentage of the actual cost, many families are unable to pay this on their own. Your donation today can make 22Q Texas family camp a reality for them! Thank you for supporting 22Q Texas and the families we serve!
