Southwest District Kiwanis Foundation

The Foundation owns and operates Kamp Kiwanis, located 18 miles south of Gallup, NM.  Kamp Kiwanis is located in the Zuni Mountains at an elevation of about 7,200 feet.  This 160 acre facility is dedicated to the service of KIDS.  Over the course of a year, literally thousands of young people, from throughout the Southwest District, participate in camps and other youth enrichment programs.


Kamp Kiwanis is located on Cousins Road just west of the intersection with N.M. Highway 602, eighteen miles south of Gallup, NM.  Look for the tall cell phone tower.  It can be seen even at night.  It's located on one corner of our property.

If traveling from Gallup, come south on 602 to Vanderwagen, NM.  Continue south another 1/2 mile to Cousins Road.  Turn west onto Cousins Road, go past the Volunteer Fire Station and turn right into the Kamp. 

If traveling from Zuni, NM come east on NM 53 until it intersects with NM 602 (about 10 miles).  Turn north onto 602 and continue another 10 miles to Cousins Road.  Turn west onto Cousins Road and follow the instructions above.
