Summer Camp Countdown!

Message from the Executive Director

It’s SO good to report MHKC’s Winter Retreats are BACK after a three-year hiatus!   In January, there was enough snow to make snow angels, have a snowball fight or two and make a valiant attempt at building an igloo!  We’ve been snow-dancing, looking forward to the next Winter Retreat, February 18-20!

Lots of interest and excitement about 2023 summer camp!  We expect to operate at full capacity this year and can’t wait!  MHKC’s Programs staff is in camper registration mode, and looking for summer staff to be counselor supervisors, lifeguards, kitchen workers, tend the horses and fill all of the other jobs involved in running the camp.  If you know someone looking for a unique and rewarding summer job, PLEASE, send them our way!

Our next fundraising event is the annual Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp Gala & Auction, Friday evening April 14th at Oregon Golf Club. The theme is “Black, White & Bubbles”, a hint at what you might wear and what might be on the beverage list!  It’s always fun and an important gathering that supports camp programming.  Join us!  And if you or someone you know would like to sponsor the event, details are here:

Stay heathy and we hope to see you at camp!
