PFC is much more than a Camp Sweeney tradition—it’s a movement! Our amazing campers are spreading perseverance, faith, and courage throughout Texas this year! Check out some of the opportunities to reconnect, give back, and find that special Sweeney fellowship in an area near you!
Although Camp Sweeney is only in session during the summer, diabetes doesn’t stop when the school year begins, and neither do we. PFC Life keeps campers connected through every season! In communities across Texas, families volunteer to host PFC Life! events. Campers gather at a designated home on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 7:30 to 8:30 pm.
To ensure that PFC Life! remains tailored to our current campers, we use a verified texting system to distribute PFC Life! details. After campers, or parents on their behalf, sign up for this system they will be able receive the location of PFC Life events on their mobile device.REGISTER HERE
