Parent's Day & Closing Ceremonies | Kanakuk Kamps
Parent's Day & Closing Ceremonies

Today is the last full day of the term at K-West. We can hardly believe it’s already time to say “goodbye & see ya next summer!” Kamp has been awesome, but the Kampers seem really excited that parents will be arriving today. Here is a quick rundown on what today and Saturday’s schedule will be like.

This morning is a normal schedule. Kampers get to enjoy their final specialty or elective classes for the term. After classes and lunch, Kampers head to rest period and get busy packing their trunks and cleaning up the cabin.

A special event that happens on this day is the Best Bunkhouse party. Throughout the term the cabins were judged each day on how well they cleaned during Best Bunkhouse time. Well, the winners are announced at lunch and then those cabins head to the pool at 3:00 for a pool party and lots of goodies! Ice cream, cookies, candy and soda are on the menu for this final celebration.

Our gates open at 4:00 this afternoon! What fun it is to watch moms and dads hug on their kids and listen to all of the adventures their Kamper experienced at kamp! Parent’s Night is a “Don’t Want to Miss” Family event! We invite you to be here for the exciting end to your Kampers term and meet your Kampers counselors and Leadership team. We’ve got a full night of family fun planned for you!

On Saturday morning we’ll wrap the term up by honoring kampers with specialty awards, division awards, and the “I’m Third” award. We’ll also be announcing which tribes won competition for the term—who will it be?
