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 medical support of Children’s Mercy, is excited to present Camp ChiMer – summer camp specifically geared for children ages nine to 18 who are undergoing peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis or who have had a renal transplant. The camp is held on the scenic grounds of Three Trails, a 40-acre privately owned facility east of Kansas City, 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:camp-chimer
