Although COVID-19 restrictions have forced the Kiwanis Camp Wa-Ri-Ki in Washougal to cancel or postpone reservations and prohibit overnight camping this summer, the camp is still planning to host virtual education sessions in August.

The Kiwanis Camp Wa-Ri-Ki will host two virtual learning sessions for campers ages 8 to 12 years old. The camp’s board of directors and event coordinator, Briana Parks, created the virtual learning experiences, which utilize a science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) approach.

The first session, an arthropod study, begins at 6 p.m. Aug. 19, on Zoom. A second virtual Zoom class will be held Aug. 23.

“This is one way that we can help recover from some of the lost revenue that we will experience this year and still offer campers quality education that they have come to expect, just doing it virtually,” said Camp Wa-Ri-Ki Board president Valarie Schaffroth.
