Mission Statement

The Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp empowers children and adults with disabilities.

Description

The Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp was founded in 1933 by the Kiwanis Club of Montavilla to serve low-income youth.

We began serving people with disabilities in 1957. Since 1972, the camp has enjoyed a unique partnership with Portland State University's Special Education Department which provides planning and personnel support.

Every summer, over 500 children and adults with developmental, physical and/or neurological disabilities enjoy and benefit from their time at Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp. Funding comes from camper fees, individuals, foundations and community organizations, especially Kiwanis Clubs in Oregon and southwest Washington.

The camp was founded by a Kiwanis Club, and has been lovingly tended since then by many Kiwanis Clubs and their members. We are, however, a separate organization from Kiwanis International and its member clubs.

Many Kiwanis members and other community volunteers help maintain the camp's 22 acres of US Forest Service land in the Mt. Hood National Forest.
