Kiwanis Club of Greater Omaha Sends Kids to Camp

This summer, Kiwanis Club of Greater Omaha (KCOGO.comsent 3 kids from Boyd Elementary to Camp OK. Qualifications include students that have never attended a camp, have a clear financial need and demonstrate academic gifts.  Kiwanis Clubs in Nebraska and Iowa send 105 campers to the YMCA camp in Boone, IA.

The goal of Camp OK is to provide experiences with nature, water activities, leadership skills, science and opportunities to share talents.  Through camping the students learn independence, responsibility, how to get along with others and how to make good choices.

The Kiwanis motto of serving the children of the world is lived out by its defining statement:  A global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time.  Involving kids in Camp OK is testimony of Kiwanis serving our children.
