SBANT sponsors two family camps each year at Camp John Marc (, a beautiful, accessible camp located in Meridian, Texas, about 75 miles south of the DFW area.

Hispanic Family Camp

In the spring, our Spanish speaking families gather for a weekend of fun, relaxation and sharing. Some child care is provided so that parents can meet and discuss important health and other issues related to the challenges of life with SB. Maria Esperanza Avitia coordinates this camp, and she can be reached by email at or by telephone at 469-269-8067.  The date for the current year’s camp can be found on the SBANT calendar on the home page.  The camp is typically held each March, with the application available in January.  More information on camps here.

Fall Family Camp

In the fall, we hold a weekend camp geared for families with children under 8 years of age. Fishing, hiking, arts and crafts are offered. Some child care is offered on Saturday so that parents can gather for sharing information or listening to a speaker.  The camp is typically held in November, with the application available in September.

Please check the Events list on the home page for the current dates, applications and contact information for these camps.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
