In 1929, the Kiwanis Club of Little Rock established the Joseph Pfeifer Kiwanis Camp, which was built near Ferndale. Named after Joseph Pfeifer (1835-1926) at the request of his son, a founding contributor, this camp serves underpriviledged children.
In 1982, the camp became a year-long operation with the help of Sanford and Binky Martin Tollette. The camp has won numerous awards since 1991, including the "Association of Experimental Education Organization of the Year" award in 1998 and the "Organization of the Year" award from AmeriCorps in 2002. The camp has received funding from the AmeriCorps program since 1994, and many of its staff members serve through the AmeriCorps program. The camp continues to operate today.
