Camp Tyler:

Camp Tyler came about from an idea one of our Kiwanis members had in 1945.  He envisioned a year-round facility go be used as an outdoor camp for the children of Tyler and the surrounging communities.  With hard work and a lot of fundraising Camp Tyler opened in 1956 with Donaldson and Dudley cabins housing campers for the first time.  Camp Tyler is owned and operated by The Camp Tyler Foundation. The foundation contracts with Tyler ISD and other surrounding ISD's to provide the Camp Tyler Outdoor School Program to 5th graders each year.   Our club supports Camp Tyler each year with a $2,000 contribution.
