About Kids Camp:

Kidney Camp is celebrating it's 30th year in 2016!

The goal of Kids Camp is to provide children with chronic kidney disease the opportunity to enjoy an exciting summer camp adventure complete with the great outdoors, campfires, sing-a-longs, water activities, and new friends! Each year more children participate in the Kids Camp experience. We invite your child to join us this summer for an unforgettable adventure.
