Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp is committed to the highest standards of safety and wellness for all of the people we serve. If you have questions regarding the health at Camp, please contact:

Dave McDonald – Executive Director,

Kayla Plessinger – Programs Director,


Please direct any Health-related questions, comments, or concerns to the Executive Director or Programs Director. They are the ones who can help you. Our seasonal staff working during our programs are only enforcing rules they were told to, they are not the ones who make the decisions.


To continue to put safety first, numbers and ratios are critical. In the event of an illness outbreak, for example, Norovirus, COVID-19, the flu, etc when multiple campers, counselors, volunteers, and/or staff are affected, MHKC will notify

Camper families, by email or phone

All on-site staff/counselors/volunteers will be informed in person.

If there are back-to-back programs after an illness outbreak, MHKC will inform the next program camper families, staff/volunteers/counselors by email or phone as well.

Decisions to close Camp, delay, or cancel a program to mitigate risk after the exposure won’t be taken lightly.

*All communications will be HIPPA compliant.

Precautions By YOU

If you (or your camper) feel ill, have a family member who is sick, or have a reasonable suspicion that you have been directly exposed to someone who was sick, we ask that you PLEASE stay home. If an individual becomes ill during their time at MHKC, they must leave immediately. Please know, that temperature checks will be performed upon arrival.



These may be grounds for going home upon arrival:


Sore throat


Stuffy or runny nose


Trouble breathing/shortness of breath

Stomach Pain/Vomiting


Fever of 100 degrees or higher



MHKC does not require masks to be worn unless suspected illness is present.
