TCU Family Camp

Physical challenges don't have to put limits on fun. That's especially true at TCU Family Camp. Imagine 170 acres of nature, adventures and unlimited family memories.

TCU Family Camp is a weekend camp for families of patients, ages 5- 12, that have spent time on the Transitional/Rehabilitative Care Unit (TCU/RCU) at Cook Children's. The weekend retreat, held at Camp John Marc in early April, let's families get away to the great outdoors, and get together for a memorable time.
