Kiwanis Camp to start Family Camp with grant

Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp was awarded a $25,000 grant to pilot a Family Camp


Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp has received a $25,000 grant from the Community Grant Program of the Oregon Community Foundation to create a Family Camp program.

The mission of Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp is to empower children and adults with disabilities. The existence of a Family Camp program will help younger camp members with developmental disabilities and their parents make the jump from home life to camp life, which can be an issue for younger campers.

According to Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp, “Through the Family Camp Program pilot, campers’ quality of life will improve, along with their personal growth in communications, self-esteem, social skills, sense of achievement and independence.”

The Oregon Community Foundation awards more than $60 million in grants and scholarships annually.
