We are happy to announce that the 2021 West Texas Family Weekend: Camp P.E.T. will be held in-person. We can’t wait to see you!

West Texas Family Weekend is a great time for everyone!

West Texas Family Weekend: 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, West Texas Family Camp is completely free.

Families with children diagnosed with epilepsy of all ages are invited! Family members living within a household will have the opportunity to experience some fun camp activities while also getting an opportunity to connect with other families living with epilepsy.

Who Can Apply?

Families with children 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?

West Texas Family Camp weekemd 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 weekend, 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!
