Living in open-air octagon cabins, Kiwanis campers build community with other 7th graders and are encouraged to share their thoughts and opinions within an inclusive and caring community of their peers and counselors. Together, the group can choose from a range of exciting activities including arts & crafts, nature exploration, and outdoor cooking. 7th graders enhance their ability to work as a team through the low challenge course and are given their first opportunity to challenge themselves on our high ropes circuit. Kiwanis is also the first chance for Namanu campers to relax while weaving a rug or tea towel in our historic weavery.
Kiwanis-Pioneer Extended Session: Campers that are in 7th-12th grades can choose to spend 11 days at camp instead of the regular one-week session! During this extended session, campers may have the opportunity to explore the far reaches of camp, build stronger relationships with their fellow campers and staff, master more complicated outdoor skills and activities, and infuse more of their own creativity in their schedule. Campers signed up for this session will live in Pioneer cabins.
Kiwanis campers also have the option to sign up for a Trail Ride at our Namanu Ranch for an additional fee. Trail Ride space is limited.
Camp Namanu is proud to provide financial assistance to youth and families each summer. Scholarships are provided through generous donations from individuals, organizations and partners.
Please register for your first choice of sessions and pay a required deposit before submitting applications for financial assistance.
