At Kanakuk, we believe that America's greatest natural resource is our youth. Summer camp can be an incredibly effective time of growth for kids. Kanakuk's summer camp program is dedicated to developing dynamic Christian leaders through life-changing experiences, Godly relationships, and spiritual training.

Since 1926, we've been showing kids the joy of a relationship with Christ through excellence in non-denominational sports training, camping adventures, and Christian mentoring. Foundational to our mission is the scripture: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, and soul...love your neighbor as yourself" (Matthew 22), and we strive to make sure that every Kamper- regardless of age- understands how it looks to walk in unison with these verses. We call it "I'm Third" - God First, Others Second, I'm Third.

Coupling World-Class adventure along with hearts of servant-leadership, our staff of over 1,800 hand-picked college Christian athletes mentors to your child through nightly cabin devotionals, counselor/Kamper time, youth-rally style (age appropriate) talks, and consistent Christian mentoring. It's our greatest hope that your child will return home ready to take what they've learned here, and share it with the world around them.
