Kiwanis Camp Casey is a week long summer camp for children ages 6-17 who have physical disabilities. It is provided by the North Central of Seattle Kiwanis Club and all staffing, nurses and counselors volunteer to help create “the best week of the year” for our campers. Camp is located next to Fort Casey State Park on Whidbey Island in the old WWII army barracks (now owned by SPU). Transportation to and from Camp is provided from the North Seattle area. For over seventy-five years the Seattle North Central Kiwanis Club have fully funded the camp, so it is free of charge!!

North Central Kiwanis Memorial Fund Mission Statement (DBA Kiwanis Camp Casey)
We work under the auspice of the Kiwanis International Mission statement: serving the children of the world. The North Central Kiwanis Memorial Fund supports charitable services for children and adults with disabilities. Our primary project is to provide a one week summer camp for children ages 6 to 17 years, who have physical disabilities. We support the camper’s independence and ability to experience summer fun they would typically not be able to experience without the assistance of the camp. We champion leadership development and maturity advancement of high school and college age counselors. We work cooperatively with our community and greater Kiwanis family to accomplish our mission.
