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.

  • I’ve always said, we’ll give up quite a bit of ‘necessities’ before we give up our child’s summers at Kanakuk. There is no way I could ever put a price on the benefit our children (and our family) have received from summers at Kamp. Keep up the great work!

  • I would never have believed how much Kanakuk could impact my child. He’s grown up in a Christian home all his life, but I can honestly say that his summers at Kanakuk have taught him to “own” his faith. Kanakuk has definitely impacted my child for eternity.

  • Kanakuk gives my kids experiences they can’t get anywhere else. Even better, those experiences are intentionally crafted to help my son and daughter grow spiritually and in character. We love Kanakuk!
