Camp Kiwanis is a year-round residence camp that provides a positive, challenging outdoor experience to the youth served by Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta.

We work with hundreds of kids and teens each year to help them reach their full potential. We provide an environment where all youth feel safe and secure to dream, discover, and develop. Our programs focus on helping kids succeed in school, live healthy, and become leaders. We are so glad to be part of this community and look forward to working with you!

Outdoor Programs

Camp Kiwanis is the first exposure that many Boys & Girls Club members have to a wilderness setting. For some, it is the first time away from their own neighborhoods. New experiences like nature hikes, archery, kayaking, swimming, fishing and orienteering become precious life lessons, sparking new opportunities for personal growth.

Leaders in Nature’s Kingdom (LINK)

Leaders in Nature’s Kingdom (LINK) is a four year leadership program where BGCMA members become camp staff and complete a full interview, application and training process.

Retreats

Retreats for Keystone and Torch Club officers, Passport to Manhood and Girl Power Summit take place each year at Camp Kiwanis.

Weekend Adventures

Weekend Adventures, including Wildly Creative Weekends and “design your own” are weekends specifically designed for your club members to experience camp as a unit.  (Space is limited to 20 per weekend and support staff is required)

Summer Program

Each year, more than 600 young people attend Camp Kiwanis during a five-day summer session. By living and working in small groups, teams of campers rely on themselves and each other to master new skills and complete a journey of self-discovery.

Camp’s Landscape

This unique site is located on the scenic and historic Broad River and Bartram Trail. The Camp’s program and facility theme is centered on William Bartram’s travels along the Broad River in 1773 just after the Cherokee Nation sold the property to the British Government. All programs feature Cherokee Culture, Georgia’s Colonial History, and Bartram’s passion for nature and adventure.

Why Boys & Girls Club

I love the chance to teach our youth about the wonders and magic of the outdoors.  The chance to get our members outside of their normal everyday environments and into the wilderness.

Our Impact in the Community

We are able to give these youth chances and opportunities to experience so many different things, all they have to do is take advantage of all the opportunities to grow and learn.

What Makes Our Club Special

Having 160 acres on the Broad River is a pretty special place for these members to call their own.
