We had our church youth retreat here and we all loved it! Had a group of over 40 people, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Plenty of beautiful scenery, activities, and friendly staff. Definitely recommend!James Robinson
Kids Are The Heart of Our Mission
Kiwanis Camp WaRiKi began in the 1970’s as a way to provide a strong experience of nature for kids (and families, depending on the event) in a retreat setting that fosters the developmental messages educators, church leaders, and counselors can bring to children on a get away adventure.
Our Mission Statement: Our non-profit is committed to providing an outdoor experience that offers optimal child development and community growth through recreational, educational and leadership opportunities.
Our Vision: To provide an environment for introspect, growth and adventure for children, families and community organizations to become better stewards of the earth.
