Kamp Kiwanis Open House

Following the 2022 season, Kamp Kiwanis was required to move from their current location near Bragg Creek due to the Province requiring the site for the SR1 flood mitigation project. Kamp Kiwanis is proposing to build their new facility at a location just south of Bergen, Alberta (NE1/4 10-31-5-W5M). The site was chosen for it’s calm atmosphere, unique natural features, and ease of accessibility for local and regional visitors. Kamp Kiwanis will celebrate and preserve what makes the site/area so special.

Kamp Kiwanis is an overnight summer camp for underprivileged or disadvantaged children. In addition, they offer an outdoor school program and manage overnight and day trip programs in the spring and fall. Kamp Kiwanis also offers a rental program for community groups that do not have the space to run their programs. The proposed location in Mountain View County will continue the longstanding Kamp Kiwanis legacy. The new facilities and site will build upon the lessons learned over the past 70+ years of operation and provide space for Kamp Kiwanis to grow and accommodate a diverse range of interests and abilities in the long term. The new site will be designed with opportunities for fun, learning, growth, reflection, and community involvement at the forefront.  

Township Planning + Design and Kamp Kiwanis are hosting a second Open House at the Bergen Community Hall on Thursday, October 26, 2023 from 5:00 PM-8:00 PM. A formal presentation will be held at 6:00 PM. The intent is to build on the feedback that we learned from the community at our first Open House in April. We invite and welcome community members and neighbours to come by and continue conversations with the project team and to learn more about the project! All are welcome and light refreshments will be provided. In the meantime, to learn more, please feel free to visit the dedicated project website at www.kampkengage.com.
