Kiwanis Club of Ocala

We invest in our counties future by investing in our children. We build literacy, social and safety skills with programs shown to be effective: Programs such as our signature Camp Kiwanis Summer Camp which  just celebrated 75 years of continuous operation with one pandemic exception. Our Reading is Fundamental (RIF) program which places books in the hands of students in PreK to Grade 4 – Books they can keep in their home library. Our Reach Out and Read program which, in cooperation with pediatricians, places books in the hands of parents to read to very young children. And, our safety programs: teaching children to swim and providing car seats, bike helmets, and cribs (which prevent co-sleeping deaths).

Kiwanis Club of Ocala annual Sportsman’s Dinner which is the sole fund raiser for all projects other than Camp Kiwanis. Camp Kiwanis gets 1/3 of the profits from this plus all the profits from our other fund raisers.
