Camp P.E.T. (Proud Epilepsy Team) is great to our program of epilepsy camps. Like Camp E.E.G., it combines the outdoors and the experiences of camp life with camaraderie and team building for the whole family. This experience is funded through private gifts from people like you. So, Camp P.E.T. is completely free.
Located on the Ceta Canyon grounds in Happy, TX, Camp P.E.T.’s activities include:
Arts and crafts
Outdoor Learning Center, featuring:
night sky mapping
Who Can Apply?
Families with young people, ages 0-17, with a diagnosis of epilepsy or seizures may apply. Up to five family members may attend. To participate, campers must live within our region. Generally, that includes Greater Houston, East Texas, the DFW area, North Texas, and all of West Texas. Campers, however, are only eligible for one camp session per year.
Where is Camp?
Camp P.E.T. takes place at the beautiful and fully accessible Ceta Canyon. The campgrounds are located at 37201 FM 1721 in Happy, TX. Happy is approximately 35 miles south of Amarillo, just off of I-27.
Why Should You Go?
We believe that healing from epilepsy is as much about exercising the body as it is the brain. Fortunately, West Texas Epilepsy Family Camp is equal parts of both. During the session, campers will find themselves physically and mentally engaged. As a result, campers will feel a part of something bigger than themselves. That is, they will feel like a community. As an added bonus, the whole family gets involved.
How Much Does it Cost?
Private gifts fund the entire experience. For that reason, our epilepsy camps, like West Texas Epilepsy Family Camp, are 100% free to our community of campers. So, you just worry about having a great time. Leave the rest to us!
