Due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure the health and safety of our camp community, Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp will no longer be offering camp in an in-person format this summer.  Our year-round team is currently working on alternative programs for this summer and plan to keep the fall and winter retreats intact at this time. We are working hard to offer year-round programming that fulfills our mission of empowering individuals with disabilities. Please stay tuned for more information. For any questions or concerns please call 503-452-7416 or email info@mhkc.org.  Remember- We are in this together.

ALL THINGS CAMP A Message to Our Camper Community

Here’s what we know for sure: Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp transforms people. Campers conquer fears and build confidence, while building a community of friends and enjoying some respite from their families and everyday life. Families, too, enjoy a little respite, learn to let go a little, and beam with pride at what their campers learn from going to camp and the joy they get from being there. Counselors and staff that work closely with campers learn that, at the end, we’re all about the same. We all want to love and be loved and have fun! Lessons learned at Mt Hood Kiwanis Camp last forever and make us all better for the experience.

We also know camp, as we know it, cannot be held this year. We, along with our campers and their families, are heartbroken. But we also know this health crisis will eventually pass and we will gather together at camp once again in the future. We don’t know when, but we know we will!

All organizations must invest in the behind-the-scenes people, infrastructure and systems that support and ensure success. Mt Hood Kiwanis Camp’s future depends on continued investment to deliver the rich camp experience we all expect. We hope you’ll consider supporting MHKC with a donation in any amount, and by spreading the word to others on why Camp matters to you. Your support will help us continue MHKC’s legacy of empowering children and adults with developmental disabilities through equitable access to the outdoors and recreation.

Thanks, and stay healthy!
