NF Family Camp
26th Annual Charline and Red McCombs Texas NF Family Camp
September 8 - 10, 2017
TNFF has been offering an NF Family Camp to our patients and their families for over twenty years. Camp is a great time for patients to learn, laugh and make meaningful relationships with new NF friends while growing closer to their own families. Activities include: arts and crafts, canoeing & paddle-boating, fishing, swimming, challenge (ropes) course, horseback riding, hiking or biking on nature trails, softball, basketball, soccer, and indoor games. TNFF offers “camperships” (scholarships) for camp tuition. Campership selection is based on financial need.
“I have been to this camp I believe at least 7-8 maybe a few more times. There is so much fun to have but most of all it has been such a great support system for those of us who have Neurofibromatosis and for family and friends too. It gives us the opportunity to be in a group of people who understand one another. A time to have fun and be who we are without judgment and funny looks! A time to feel loved and accepted. A time to be a community who are real and not fake. A time to come together and cry and laugh. I can't wait to see my 'old' friends and meet new ones!” Roxanne – San Antonio, TX
