Our Story

The KECamps Story

Established in 1999, KECamps provides the highest quality children’s summer camps for country clubs. KECamps began as a small operation with just three club camps in Las Vegas. Almost two decades later, we are now proud to operate over one hundred camps across the country in thirty-two states. In 2014, 2015 and 2016, KECamps was awarded the Excellence in Achievement Award for Club Program of the Year by Boardroom Magazine. Last summer, over 5,000 campers enjoyed their summer vacation with us.

We believe that the single best thing you can do for your child is send him or her to camp. The confidence, self-awareness, lasting friendships and joy children gain from attending camp is impossible to match. We are proud to offer an economical, yet top-notch camp option for country club members and guests. We are passionate about providing quality camp opportunities for children. After all, planning for and implementing our camp programs is what we do 12 months of the year!

Our unique summer day camps offer children opportunities to experience a variety of exciting and innovative programs in a safe and professional setting. Daily schedules vary from location to location, depending on each unique facility. The majority of our camps offer group golf instruction, group tennis instruction, daily swimming and martial arts. All of our programs are well-rounded, age appropriate and tons of fun! The ability to cater to a club’s specific needs is a trademark of KECamps.
