KCLH Summer Camp
Since the summer of 1991, the Kiwanis of Little Havana (KCLH) with cooperation from the City of Miami Parks and Recreation organized a summer baseball league at Shenandoah Park for the underserved children of the community; over 100 kids attended the eight-week program.
It became evident that not every child liked baseball or had the skills for the sport. Henceforth, the program expanded to include more comprehensive activities including swimming, tennis, soccer, volleyball, indoor games and weekly field trips.
At the present time, approximately 180 children ages 7 - 13 enroll in the KCLH Summer Camp yearly and the Kiwanis provide supervised activities, uniforms, daily lunch, field trips to attractions and a safe summer of fun where parents can drop off their children while at work. This program has been established for low income families.
The camp is FREE and children are selected based on income levels. Throughout the years, the Summer Camp has served more than 4,000 children.
This year, we are proud to announce that the KCLH Summer Camp will be bringing their campers to the track for the first time as a unique location for a field trip. The KCLH will bring down approximately 180 kids and they will then be broken down into six even groups. There will be six activities (see below for activities) to coincide with each group of kids. The kids will then move from one activity to the next, with a one hour lunch break. Lunch will be provided by the KCLH.
Kids will spend five hours at the speedway on July 24 and the kids will be broken up into six groups and take part in six different activities around the property.
- Relay Race
- Water Balloon Fight
- Capture the Flag
- Tug of War
- Anatomy of a Race Car
