The Mankato Kiwanis Club has made the difficult decision to cancel 2020 Youth Summer Camps due to COVID-19.   Each week up to 165 campers utilize the Camp’s facilities on Lake Washington in LeSueur County.


Camps originally scheduled for this summer include YMCA Youth Camps, Celebrate Me Week, Camp Shiloh, Royal Family Kids and Camp OZ and others, with a total of over 2,500 individuals being served each summer.


They will instead be focusing on a capital campaign. The capital campaign includes plans for a new restroom and shower building, an expanded dining hall and storm shelter, six additional cabins and other needed repairs to improve handicap accessibility.
