Your Support Creates Opportunities


Kiwanis Camp Patterson is owned and managed by the Mankato Kiwanis Club, which gives organizations the opportunity to operate youth camps throughout the summer. The current capacity of campers and counselors is 165 per week, and several host organizations are turning away many youth that are interested in attending camp. Due to age restrictions,
the camp is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Host organizations offer children the opportunity to experience a traditional, overnight summer camp with engaging outdoor activities including:

  • Camp Shiloh

  • YMCA Youth Camps

  • Celebrate Me Week

  • Royal Family Kids

  • Camp Oz

  • And Others
