The public is invited to join the Rotary Youth Camp in celebrating 100 years of service at a free open house from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 18. The Rotary Youth Camp is located at 22310 NE Colbern Road in Lee’s Summit.

The open house will feature fun activities for the whole family including crafts, yard games, inflatables, an exotic animal petting zoo, entertainment, a food truck and a fire truck.

Since the first camp was held in 1925, more than 300,000 campers have experienced life-changing moments at the Rotary Youth Camp. Supported by Downtown Kansas City Rotary Club 13 and Greater Kansas City Day, the camping experience is free of any cost to the campers’ sponsoring organizations.

“We are so excited about the hundreds of thousands of young people’s lives the camp has been able to positively impact,” says Rotary Youth Camp Board President Brent Worley. “Offering an outdoor experience for disabled and disadvantaged for the last 100 years, all at no charge to their community group, we live our slogan “Life. Changing.” every day. We look forward to the next century of camping as part of the Greater Kansas City Community.”

Located on 40-acres, the Rotary Youth Camp features a state of the art, wheel chair accessible pool, a paved nature trail, hiking trails, cabins, tent camping areas and a large dining/activity hall. To learn more about the Rotary Youth Camp, visit
