|Kamp Kiwanis Brochure|
In June 2008, Beatrice Johnson, of Johnson County, Arkansas, passed away and bequeathed 160 acres of land to the Missouri-Arkansas District of Kiwanis for the construction of a camp for children. A 501(c)3 non-profit corporation named the Missouri-Arkansas Beatrice Johnson Kiwanis Youth Kamp Foundation was formed on November 17, 2011. Chuck Raney, a member of the Ft. Smith Commissary Kiwanis Club and the leader of the task force, was elected as the first President of the foundation board. The camp was formally dedicated on April 14, 2012. The camp is a 160 acre forested site located about three hours south of Branson, MO in Northwestern Arkansas.

At the 2018 MO-ARK Midwinter Conference, Jerry Martin gave an update on developments at the Kamp, the new video and brochure. The next goals are electrical, a care taker's cabin and two vault style bathrooms. The estimated cost is $113,990. Your contributions can help us reach the goal.
