Camp Limberlost

This effort is the club's signature service project. Committee work includes securing the facility, working with the schools for camper nominations, obtaining food donations, coordinating transportation for the campers to and from camp, Kiwanis night at camp and more. Camp Limberlost is one of the longest continuously running community service projects in Kiwanis International. It truly does take a village to plan and execute this week-long camp. If you want to relive your camp days and make a difference in the lives of 90 youngsters, join this committee.
