Friends of Kaleo, Inc. is a non-profit organization organized by former staff, former campers, missionaries, pastors, nurses, families, local community members,  and people who love Camp Kaleo. Our mission is below:

Friends of Kaleo seeks to sustain the ministry of Camp Kaleo Retreat Center through fundraising, promotion of a discipling/learning environment, and support to campers and staff by investing resources towards efforts which enable the vision of Kaleo.

This organization has been years in the making. Starting in the late 90's, a group of former staff got some groundwork done by creating a newsletter and opening a bank account for membership dues. Due to the busyness of life, the group just stayed in the 90's.

Camp Kaleo has always had a brotherhood and sisterhood relationship, so people kept in touch, donated to different things, and volunteered, but there was never a simple way to do it all.

Fast-forward 25 years, and a new generation, in conjunction with the old one, saw the need for this group. They witnessed how willing people were to donate to different causes and volunteer for events;  they just didn't have an avenue to do that. 

That is why Friends of Kaleo was established. This is a one stop shop for donations, a member directory, an annual homecoming event, and more. All in order to support Camp Kaleo.

We all love camp and believe that Jesus changes lives there. In the first few months of incorporation, the group has already been able to donate a drink cooler for the camp store, and give towards camper scholarships. We are so excited to see how God continues to use this group to further His plan of camp. 

We hope that you will be a part.
