The child in nature is an endangered species,and the health of children and the health of the Earth are inseparable.
With 3 Nature Explorer Camps completed, and our last one coming up on August 17th, 2016, we have had over 300 children and their parents join us at the camp and experience the outdoors!
This year our 4 NEC events where planned and coordinated by our 2016 Program Coordinator Desire Costello! She joined us this year after participating in the 2015 NEC event with her daughters. Our success has been a community effort, but it has been Desires’ passion for children and the importance of those children experiencing the outdoors, that has really brought it all together this year. Thank you to Desire and all our Kiwanis Members, Community Volunteers, Parents, Camp Personnel, Vendors, and Sponsors for the awesome summer!

In good Hands –
Our caretakers’ wife, Diana Richards is one of the newest members of the volunteer fire fighter team at the Skamania volunteer Fire department #4. As the only woman on the team, they like to test her. But she can hold her own and is a huge asset to the fire department team. Her husband and our camp caretaker, Mike Richards also joined the fire depart team. Thank you both for your service and commitment to our camp and community.
KEEPING EVERYTHING SHIPSHAPE –
We are working hard on the camp to enhance your outdoor camp experience. These fellows put their body and heart in to their work to ensure we have everything ready for your visit!
