Help us Celebrate 56 Years of Service!

Help Sustain Camp Wa-Ri-Ki

Sustained Giving Members Needed! — We’re celebrating 56 years since opening.  Now you can help us add amenities (new playground, new archery course); do maintenance (kitchen upgrades, septic fields repair); and get set for a bright future (we’re planning a major construction project for a new dining hall meeting lodge).  We’re also expanding our programs in 2021. 

 Help us now, by pledging to donate $20 a month to ensure Camp is here when you are ready to return and to continue planning educational programs.

Each year the Camp hosts camps and training events for approximately 3500+ local area youth including church groups, groups like Young Marines, Kiwanis Key Clubs for high schoolers and day camps. Plus our events served approximately 350 kids, over 50% from low income families, and we plan to double that in 2020.  Help us sustain these goals… for the kids!

The Mission of Kiwanis Camp Wa-Ri-Ki is to help children and young adults in need grow through outdoor education, and to foster leadership skills to help them lifelong.  This dovetails with the international Kiwanis organization behind the Camp whose defining statement is, “Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time.”
