The National Kidney Foundation of Kansas & Western Missouri, with medical support from Children’s Mercy Hospital and Clinics, is excited to host a fun and unique summer camp experience.
Camp ChiMer is a 5-day overnight summer camp for children ages 9 to 18 who are undergoing peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, or have had a renal transplant. Campers will have the chance to participate in exciting activities like fishing, team-building activities, rock wall climbing, sports, learning to cook, making lifelong friends, and yes, even swimming in our filtered pool. We also offer off-site activities such as going to a local sporting event or attending a dance party.
Camp ChiMer is located in a beautiful 100-acre privately owned facility in Kansas City, Missouri.
Camp will be staffed by physicians, nurses, dietitians, pharmacist, social workers, and volunteers 24 hours a day. Campers are medically-supervised and dialysis treatments will be provided on-site. Campers form friendships and share common bonds and experiences with others who are “just like them” all while enjoying the therapeutic benefits of the great outdoors.
“I had an amazing time at camp I met so many great people and had the time of my life I never wanted it to end!”- Chase
