Going away to summer camp may seem out of reach for children on dialysis or who have had a kidney transplant. Not at Camp ChiMer! Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City, with the support of Children's Mercy Kansas City, is excited to present Camp ChiMer - summer camp specifically geared for children ages nine to 17 who are undergoing peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis or who have had a renal transplant. The camp is held on the scenic grounds of Lake Doniphan, a 100-acre privately owned facility east of Excelsior Springs, Mo. Children participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities while being carefully monitored daily by health care professionals. Here, kids with special kidney conditions can experience camp just like everybody else. Learn more about our camp from our Facebook page!
Two beautiful lakes, a filtered swimming pool and a modern air-conditioned lodge along with nature provide the backdrop for a variety of indoor and outdoor activities including:

Parents can rest assured that their child will be well cared for. Healthcare professionals including a physician and nurses are available to monitor vital signs and medications daily, and provide dialysis treatments.
There is no camp fee thanks to funding from generous individuals and corporations. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp.
Our volunteer opportunities for 2016 are currently closed, please check back in 2017 for more details. Questions can be directed to Tara Adler. Thank you for your help and support!
