Dear Camp Smile Campers, Counselors and Families,  

First and foremost, we hope you and your family are staying healthy and safe. During this time of uncertainty amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot thank you enough for your loyalty, commitment, and patience as we confront and adjust to the new challenges of today. The dedication of our campers, families, and staff has been essential to the long success of Camp Smile since 1972.

After exploring many options of how we could provide a quality, fun, and safe camp experience for our campers, counselors, and staff this summer, it is with a very heavy heart that we sadly must inform you that Camp Smile will not physically open for the summer of 2020 at our home base Kiwanis Lodge in Webster, NY.

This decision was not easy to make, and we know there will be a lot of disappointed campers and families who look forward to attending Camp Smile each year. However, in an effort to provide an alternative Camp Smile experience in 2020...  

We will be offering an online Virtual Camp Smile and are planning many fun activities for all of our campers who choose to participate!

Camp Smile staff will be contacting you personally to provide details and discuss how your family can be a part of Virtual Camp Smile.

If you have any questions or thoughts at any time, please feel free to call us at 585-230-5000 or email us

We send best wishes to you and your family in these difficult and trying times.


Jane Lyth and the Camp Smile Staff
