Sailing with TLC Photo by Steve Spoden TLC CAMP, a week-long day camp for children with cancer, enjoyed its 33rd year of caring last week. Sponsored by the Lombard Junior Women’s Club, campers from all over the Chicago metropolitan area enjoyed a fun-filled week of activities free-of-charge at the camp’s home base at Sunset Knoll Recreation Center in Lombard. Campers celebrated “Sailing with TLC” as they participated in crafts, sports and games, great food and field trips to local attractions. The goal of TLC Camp is to provide a meaningful day camp experience for children with cancer, ages 5 to 13, plus one sibling per family. TLC Camp is staffed entirely by volunteers, and many of the counselors are former campers. TLC Camp is funded solely by donations from individuals, civic organizations and area businesses. Camp staff consists of members of the Lombard Junior Women’s Club, their families, friends and members of the community. Volunteer nurses are present at all times to meet medical needs.
