  • How long has your camp been operational?

    Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp was built in the 1930's by Kiwanians as a chance for kids impacted by the Great Depression to experience camp. A few years later Kiwanians opened the camp gates to individuals with disabilities. The program was so popular, and the need so strong to serve this population, that the Camp made a permanent change to serving individuals with disabilities.  In 1950, the Camp became a not for profit entity called Mt Hood Kiwanis Camp, financially independent of the Kiwanis organization.  Today we remain a Camp for individuals with disabilities and the local Kiwanis Clubs remain dedicated to the success of the camp through various methods, alongside the hard working Camp Staff and Year-Round Staff.
