PWA Holiday Charities (Houston) and the Texas Conference of Clubs are proud to help organize the outdoor camping trips for adults living with HIV/AIDS and their support group.
In 1995, Marvin Davis, aka Lady Victoria Lust, had a dream. His dream was to have a place where HIV+ men could meet without fear of rejection because of their status, a place where they could talk about their disease and network with others to learn how to manage their disease better. He founded the LVLPWA camp out with that dream in mind. After he passed, John Szewczyk took the reins and kept the dream alive until his death in 2011. In 2021 we continue their dream.

We have lost a lot of our fellow campers due to COVID-19, and while we are not mandating masks or vaccinations as per CDC guidelines, COVID-19 has not gone away so we ask that you use caution and consider getting vaccinated before camp.
TCC does not allow campfires, guns or illegal drugs at the campground. Pets are not allowed at the LVLPWA Campout unless a TCC member with a paid permit and adhering to TCC rules on pets.
