How to attend
Kamp Kiwanis is a bit different compared to most summer camps. Most summer camps have a first come, first served approach to registering their campers. Since Kamp Kiwanis aims to provide a summer camp experience for children who would otherwise have no opportunity to attend a summer camp, our registration process is based upon a nomination system. The majority of nominations come from teachers, but anyone can nominate a deserving child.
The nomination forms are due by the date listed on the nomination forms. Once the forms are collected, a selection committee comprised of Kiwanis Club Members and Kamp Kiwanis Staff will sort through all the nomination forms and select the campers who are most in need of a summer camp experience. Once the campers are selected, a health and permission package will be sent to selected campers in early June.
Unfortunately, there are only a certain amount of spots available and sometimes it is necessary to create a wait list for campers. Often spots become available up to and including the first day of the session.
