Honestly, Kanakuk changed my life. When I think about the happiest days of my life, most of them are filled with memories from camp. One of the best parts about Kanakuk is their counselors. Thought my summers at camp, my counselors taught me what it meant to have an intentional relationship with God and how to pursue him in my everyday life. I learned not only how to have an individual relationship with Christ, but how to share His love with others. I cannot thank Kanakuk enough for what they have done in my life. It truly is the happiest place on earth!

It showed me truly what community and love of god is truly about while having a blast at the same time! This was my very first summer and it will not be my last! Kanakuk has truly changed my life for the better! Not only was the camp amazing but so were the people there who supported me and have my back to this day! I couldn't have ever imagined the impact Kanakuk has made on my life and I am excited to go back next summer and do even more!

I like Kanakuk because it changes my life every year i go! I went since I was 7 through the family Kamp at Branson. The kounselors are the best! They are super entergetic, fun, encouraging, strong in their faith, and more!! After my 6th year at K-Kauai, my family decided to skip the year off cause of something else we wanted to do. I was so sad that the Lord directed me towards K-Seven! It was my first time and was very homesick, but the Lord really changed my life and I accepted Christ the second time. Ever since then, I have grown stronger in my faith and been really reading my bible and the devos that Kanakuk gives me and praying more often than I would have imagined. I am glad to be part of the Kanakuk family! Recommend Kanakuk 1,000/10! I have been going to K-Seven for three years now and K-Kauai seven years now! And hope you get the chance to go too!!

If you want your Child to grow the relationship they have with God consider Kanakuk. either at Fulll camp in Branson or any of the many Sattelite mini camps at Local Churches called " KampOut! Day Camp " Here is the way I feel after droping my girly off to Camp yesterday. A little slice of heaven on earth! . Grateful for the Godly wisdom and discipleship that is poured into them. Blessed to be a new member of the K-7 family! It is as close to Heaven on Earth as you can experience, about 20 minutes before we arrived at Kanakuk K-7 we were surrounded by a amazing calm feeling and all worries vanished instantly, you could feel the love and the presence of God all around us and it was so special and loving. Then you pull to the front gate and are greeted by highly energetic loving counselors who greet you and unload your camp stuff and pump you up for the never ending fun, love, praise & worship to come. My girly got the experience instantly by taking part in the huge Slip & Slide down the hill to camp & then joined us on the cart for the ride down the hill. Once in line to register Counselor Kallie gave her a big hug and welcomed us to camp asking our names, location and spreading the love and joy of this place. I can't say it enough this is truly a Heavenly place and the Holy Spirit engulfs you and fills the air. God is amazing and this is one of his "Special Places" on Earth.

I like Kanakuk because of the ...
I like Kanakuk because of the long tradition it has been in our family. I was a wee Freshman at Baylor University in 1986 when Kanakuk came calling. I had never heard of this camp but I felt it had my name written all over it. I applied to be a counselor at K-1 (back then there were only 2 camps) and did my first summer the summer of 1987 with the legendary Kay Holliday. My second summer, 1988, I was a counselor to two little squirrels named Jennifer Pellow Ford and Jamie Joe White. What an amazing experience being their Kiowa Squaw. I vividly remember thinking "I can not wait for MY kids to experience this one day". Jump ahead 20 years and ALL 3 of my kids have been campers at Kanakuk. When my oldest, Taylor, became a counselor the summer of 2015 it was so surreal seeing me in her 28 years later. Forget Disney....THIS is the greatest place on earth.

I like Kanakuk because it is used so marvelously to praise God and lead kids to His love. It provides new perspectives, unplugs the kids from technology to leave for a blank slate where comparison isn't so addicting, and we can focus on the world around us. The community is so beautiful, and I cherish all nine years I've gone so far. As a sophomore I look forward to enjoying three more. Thank you, K7 and K2, Kanakuk, for encouraging me and lifting me up to love the Lord with all my heart, mind, and soul.
