Discover The Life-Changing Legacy of Kanakuk

“It really shaped my faith, and then my brothers, and then our whole family” 

“This is also a place I feel like I can be myself because at school there’s distractions and judgments of the world that you don’t have here.” 

“There are just so many activities and experiences where you can interact with others!”

Healthy Relationships

Healthy relationships are one important outcome of a summer camp experience. At Kanakuk, we teach Kampers the value of living an ‘I’m Third’ lifestyle. ‘I’m Third’ means putting God first, others second, and ourselves third. Our staff receive intentional training on how to foster healthy relationships which include regular evaluation of cabin dynamics and Kamper health.

When kids are able to unplug from technology and experience outdoor adventures, they are able to rediscover the magic of face-to-face friendships and become aware of God’s grand creation. One of the best gifts you can give your child is the opportunity to leave the day-to-day behind and focus on being present with those you are with.
