Variety, The Children’s Charity of Texas is dedicated to empowering children with special needs throughout Texas.
Variety's Peaceable Kingdom Retreat for Children in Killeen, TX is the flagship program for Variety, The Children’s Charity of Texas. Over this sprawling 120 acre retreat, incredible work is done for children with special needs and many others all over Central Texas and beyond.
Peaceable Kingdom Retreat for Children began in 1984. It was originally founded by two Central Texas families in remembrance of Baby Charlie, the infant son of one of these families, who suffered from a heart ailment. In his memory, Peaceable Kingdom was opened as a day fishing camp for children with special needs, and has grown to be one of the premier retreat centers for children with special needs since its merger with Variety, The Children’s Charity in 2012.
Throughout the year Variety's Peaceable Kingdom hosts three different programs: Environmental Education Program (EEP), Weekend Retreat Program, and Summer Program. We serve a variety of diagnoses and needs, including children who are typically developing, and adult groups not related to our mission.
