The new Infirmary at Kamp Kiwanis was dedicated in a ceremony during the annual Kamp Kiwanis Open House on June 11.
The infirmary, started last summer, will be complete before the start of this summer's kamping season. It was dedicated in the memory of Domenic Sciarrotta, past president of the Peninsula Club, past lieutenant governor of the Long Island Southwest Division, and past member of the District Foundation Board of Directors.
The infirmary was constructed as an addition to the Administration Building.

Kiwanians Tour Kamp
Also during the day, Kiwanians toured the kamp and viewed the improvements that have taken place during the past year.

The tour included stops at various cabins as he pointed out the development over time and the increased sophistication of the cabins now being built, which include smoke detectors, lights, vent fans and other features that previously weren't available. Battista also talked about future plans for improvements and noted the need for all Kiwanians in the district to support the project.
