From Mt. Hood Camp Kiwanis:

The Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp was founded in 1933 by the Kiwanis Club of Montavilla to serve low-income youth.

We began serving people with disabilities in 1957. Since 1972, the camp has enjoyed a unique partnership with Portland State University’s Special Education Department which provides planning and personnel support.

Every summer, over 500 children and adults with developmental, physical and/or neurological disabilities enjoy and benefit from their time at Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp.
