What is K-2

Built as a world-class oasis for teenagers...

K-2 is a place where teenagers come to play, train, laugh, learn and grow so that they can return to the tough world of teens refreshed physically, emotionally, and spiritually.



Kanakuk's K-2 offers you a choice of either a 14-Night, or a 28-Night term. 

Both term lengths provide your Kamper with an incredible summer experience full of exciting adventure, high-energy activities, and solid Biblical discipleship - along with more fun than you can imagine! . A 28-night term dramatically expands this experience by providing your Kamper with more than twice the number of parties/skits/trips, deeper life-impacting friendships, and greater opportunities to try new things and increase their self-confidence. 

Most importantly, Kanakuk families find that it's during a 28-Night term that the greatest amount of spiritual development occurs as their child is immersed in a loving and supportive environment surrounded by solid Christian role models. 

*Kamp Store Credit of: $65 for 14-Night, and $75 for 28-Night Kampers will be added to your final tuition. Merchandise and personal care item purchases will be deducted from this credit and the balance refunded. To increase this amount or set a maximum spending limit for your child please login to your account.

Kamp Snapshot

K-2 Kampers can choose to sample from 25+ Kamp activities or spend three of the six daily sessions in specialized training for their favorite sport. Each Kamper will fill the rest of the day with classes of their choosing such as sail, kayak, blob, tramp, waterslides, rappelling, basketball, football, tennis, and that's just the start! Your teen will leave K-2 refreshed and grounded, with memories for a lifetime!


K-2 is a teenager's sports and recreation paradise. We believe that every Kamper that walks into our gates is gifted and will find fulfillment in something recreational. With over 25 sports and activities to choose from, our heartbeat is to help each Kamper find that "something" and enjoy it to the max. Kids thrive at K-2 because of the relationships they develop, the depth of spiritual training they encounter, and the exciting adventures they experience.

Christian Leadership

We believe that every K-2 Kamper is born to be a Christian leader, not a "follower of the crowd". Peer pressure is enveloping and swallowing today's teen culture in alcohol, drugs, and pornography. We exist to build a solid, unshakable spiritual foundation under our teenagers' feet so they can know their Biblical worldview, walk confidently in their Christ-centered faith, and defend their beliefs to become pacesetters in their homes, their communities, and their schools.


K-2 is 150 acres of beauty and a smorgasbord of first-class sports and recreational facilities. 15 ski/wakeboard boats, 8 ziplines, 6 brand new WaveRunners, beautiful athletic fields and courts galore, world class treetops, gymnasiums, water slides and a boxcar load of balls, and boats of every conceivable kind makes the K-2 picture literally breathtaking to an adventuresome teen. And it's all located on 1/4 mile of shoreline on Table Rock lake.

Area Lodging

Find out where Kanakuk families love to play, stay, and eat while in Branson! Many of our Kanakuk families like to stay in the Branson area either right after they've dropped off their Kampers, or right after pick-up. Over the years, they've let us know about many of the places where their family prefers to relax and unwind, spend quality time together, or enjoy a great meal where "someone else does the cooking". 

We'd like to share a few of these recommendations with you- just click the link below and you'll be taken to the Lodging and Attractions page of our website. Of course, if you choose to visit any of these establishments, we'd love it if you'd let them know that the Kanakuk family recommended them to you.
