Rotary Youth Camp
Covid-19 Update as of May 15, 2020
We aim to protect the health and safety of our campers, staff and families. Due to the world-wide pandemic, Camp Rise KC will not offer an in-person camping session in 2020.
The Rotary Youth Camp has decided to cancel all camping activities for the remainder of the season. View their statement on the Rotary Youth Camp website here.
Going away to youth camp is an experience many American children enjoy. But for many kids, physical and financial challenges stand in the way. That’s where Rotary Club 13‘s Youth Camp has served hundreds of thousands of metro area children. The Rotary Youth Camp is designed specifically for children with physical, mental or emotional disabilities which make it difficult or impossible to participate at other camps.
The entire 26-acre youth camp is wheelchair accessible. There are 13, dorm-style cabins, a large dining hall, and a state-of-the-art, zero-entry swimming pool. The camp is open year-round, and it is funded by donations from events such as Greater Kansas City Day that cover its operating expenses.
The camp enables campers to grow in self-confidence and to experience success in physical activities and human relationships.
The Rotary Youth Camp serves the youth of Greater Kansas City without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex or disability.
