See what our Parents Have to Say:

  •  We chose Camp Kiowa because we wanted Dakota to gain a sense of independence and learn about the value of helping others and making new friends. Brian and his family, along with his staff of counselors and ranch hands, have always been so warm and welcoming.  Everyone at Camp Kiowa really, honestly cares about the kids that go there. It is a safe environment for kids to just be kids, while learning valuable life lessons. Morgan D.
  • When I think back about his first session five years ago until now I am so grateful.  He has matured in so many ways and no matter what happens during the year he would always get a fresh start and a renewed spirit after his summer camp sessions.  I have seen him become more confident and more of his individual personality comes out during this time.  Thank you so much for helping me to make my son a respectable, loving, caring, and giving young man.  Tracy F.
  • I’ve been happy to send Henry to Camp Kiowa, because of the very positive environment I know he’ll be in. Kiowa promotes the value of becoming your very best, most authentic self.  Colleen K.
  • My kids are in love with Camp Kiowa! They’ve all decided that they will attend every year until they can be counselors. Camp Kiowa has changed their level of dedication at school, and has given them the tools to spread the message of being a good friend. They’ve become so dedicated to good attitudes and self-discipline; it’s infectious. Krista J.
  • Camp Kiowa was my son Tyler’s first overnight camp experience. Upon arriving the camp counselors and ranch hands immediately welcomed him and took him under their wing allowing me the security to walk away and say, “goodbye!” He learned good positive behaviors, some of which we carry on in our home today, eg. “Shout outs!” The Beasley Family
  • In the years that Brennan has been going to Camp Kiowa, he has gained a sense of independence and more confidence in himself. He looks forward to camp all year, and it makes me so happy as a parent to know he is in a safe, fun place, meeting great people, and learning more about who he is.   Jodi T.
  • My Daughter Madison didn’t want to leave, LOVED IT!!!!!!! The love given, kindness, friendships and experience of camp Kiowa will forever be one of her best childhood memories.  Miki C.
  • All three of our boys had their first session at Camp Kiowa this summer. They had a blast! Our middle boy, Jack loved the photography course so much he has taken literally hundreds of photos since Kiowa and asked for a good digital camera for his birthday. When asked if they want to go back next year, there was no hesitation, it was a resounding “YES!”  Shelly G.
  • The entire Camp Kiowa staff is amazing. I think the best thing that I experienced as a parent was, when we were all loaded up and driving out of Camp Kiowa on Sunday, my son was rolling down his window and happily waving and yelling goodbye to all the staff and campers he had so much fun with over the weekend.   The Hellman Family.
  • This was our daughters first time to camp and the counselors made it easy and comfortable for her. She learned that when you try something new that it turns out to be easy. She made new friends and said the counselors were fun.   The Smith Family

  • What better endorsement for how great this camp is? I arrive to pick up Buddy after his week there is done, and he tells me “please Mom, I want to stay another week, I’ll pay for every penny it costs!” He is staying! And no, he won’t have to pay. Great staff, great program, great fun! Kerry P.
