Kamp Kiwanis is located about 6 miles from Rome, NY, in the Town of Taberg, on Kiwanis Road. It has 102 acres of woodlands with a pond for fishing and boating and an in-ground swimming pool.
The coed camp accepts children ages 8 through 14; younger and older ages are considered with special approval. The camp has a capacity of 130 campers with 20 special needs campers per week. The staff/camper ratio is one to eight. Lower ratios are provided when needed. The camp is basically handicapped accessible. Camping segments begin each Sunday at 3 p.m. and end on Saturday at 8 a.m.
Kamp Kiwanis is owned and operated by the New York District Foundation. Since all New York District Kiwanians in good standing are Foundation members, the camp is essentially owned by all Kiwanians in the NY District.
Rules for acceptance and participation in the program are the same for everyone without regard to race, color, sex, or national origin. We are periodically inspected by the Oneida County Department of Health. EMT/Medical personnel are on site during camping sessions.
Kamp Kiwanis serves youth and individuals with many forms of disabilities and health impairments. All Special Kampers are mainstreamed during regular camping sessions. Please contact the kamp to discuss if we can provide a safe and enjoyable experience for your special Kamper.

The Kamp provides a bus service from many areas of the state. For more information, see the cover lettter on the downloads page.
