Camp Ky-O-Wahas operated since 1966, as the only inclusive local day camp experience for both children with and without disabilities, age 5-11, offering a chance for kids to participate in activities such as swimming, boating, fishing, arts & crafts, games and outdoor play. For over 40 years, this unique camp has touched thousands of lives. Due to Portland budget cuts, the camp faced possible elimination, but with the hard work from staff at The Arc and Portland Parks and Recreation, this incredible camp will continue! Camp Ky-O-Wa has allowed hundreds of children with disabilities to share in children's camp experiences with their siblings, friends and peers. Inclusion of ALL children is an important value in our community, and the Camp is truly unique in its approach. The camp has touched thousands of lives - it makes us incredibly happy to know that children will continue to experience the wonder that is Camp Ky-O-Wa.
