Children who are non-verbal but have a clear yes and no and engage with other children at a cooperative play level are appropriate Kiwanis Casey Campers. 3) The camper must use safe behavior both for themselves and others. As an all-volunteer non-profit, we are limited in our ability to provide direct one to one supervision and specialized training for our counselors which we feel your child would need for a safe overnight camp experience.

We will no longer require first-year families to drive their camper to camp. We do not allow parents to visit during the week of camp as it contributes to amplified homesickness for the other campers and causes additional risk management concerns for Kiwanis leadership as we require background checks for all adults spending time at camp. If parents would like to visit camp, we strongly encourage driving your child to camp or picking up at the end of camp. Campers who are graduating can arrange for family to visit for carnival or the graduation program. Because Kiwanis must finalize the bus transportation contract by the first of June please communicate your final plans by this date. Please answer this question, even if you elect to drive your child to camp. We will have a “field trip” day to either M-Bar-C Ranch for our younger campers or the Blue Fox Drive-In for our older campers. We usually order buses, one with a lift so older or heavier camper can be lifted onto the bus and then transferred to the bus seat with the wheelchairs placed in a truck that travels with the buses. We need to know the exact number of campers who need ADA approved stay in wheelchair tie down on the bus seating. Please answer the following:Does your child need to stay in their wheelchair with ADA approved tie downs for best head or trunk control and safety support?*YesNoCan your child sit next to a counselor on a bus seat, even if full physical assist is required, to transfer to bus seat?*YesNoTravel to camp*Drop-off at Camp Casey is free. Our buses leave from and return to 844 NE 78th St in Seattle. If you are planning on bringing your child directly to camp on Sunday, it is important for us to know so we can plan transportation.
