Frequently Asked Questions

Contact Us

We have nearly a century of experience with Kampers and families. We understand you have questions, and we want to help you answer them. If you would like more information about one of the answers below, give us a call at 417-266-3000.

Great question! Every child is growing towards independence and you know best where they are on that journey! If this is your child’s first experience away from home, summer camp can be a very safe and positive time of growth. We’ve found that kids do great when they are excited about the activities available at Kanakuk and parents have regular conversations with them about packing, planning for parties, and working on independent tasks they’ll do at Kamp.

Place medications in a plastic bag along with instructions on an index card. All medications must be in the original container.

Trunks are not a requirement, but they make transporting and keeping luggage clean, organized, and convenient. Duffle bags and suit cases are welcome. Luggage may not be more than 15.5″ tall. A good source for trunks is www.trunkoutletkanakuk.com.

Party themes are released for the summer by late February. Visit
http://kanakukparties.com for more information or view costume ideas on our Pinterest page: https://www.pinterest.com/kanakukkamps/. Kampers can be decked out in a costume, bring one or two accessories or just show up for a great time!

Each Kamp has a specific packing list you can use as a guide for your Kamper. You can view each Kamp’s individual packing list here.

Absolutely! We have many single parents who bring their children and have a fantastic time! Some of our speakers may emphasize the marriage relationship in their teaching, but since we also cover topics like conflict resolution, raising children in today’s world, etc – there is always something for everyone.

Each of our cabanas is very similar to a large motel room- with sleeping for six. There is a queen sized bed, a couch that comes out to a double, a set of bunk beds, and two private bathrooms.

K-Kauai opens at 4:00 PM on Opening Day!

Check out is after breakfast on the last day of the term. Most families are gone by 10:00 am.

We share a doctor with K-Kountry, a neighboring Kamp. However, we have nursing staff available at K-Kauai and are a five minute drive away from a quality hospital.

Our KampOut! app provides all the information you need about KampOut!. You can download it below!

All cancellations must be submitted in writing or e-mailed to
reg@kanakuk.com. Any event cancelled before May 15 will receive a full refund of tuition. After May 15 and leading up to 7 days before your KampOut! Event cancellation will result in a forfeit of a $100 deposit. Within 7 days of the event, and during the week of Kamper will forfeit the entire tuition fee.

Opening and closing ceremonies are some of the most exciting parts of your Kamper’s stay at Kanakuk! During our opening ceremony, Kampers will make new friends as they participate in tons of fun activities together, meet their counselors, and get settled in with their new cabin-mates. During closing ceremonies, parents get to meet their Kamper’s counselors, attend the awards ceremonies, and hear about some extra-special ways their Kamper has modeled Christ during that term. Closing ceremonies also offer the earliest opportunity for next summer’s re-enrollment!

We assign 10-12 Kampers to each tent by birthdate, and 1 counselor is assigned to each tent. In order to encourage a healthy environment after the COVID-19 crisis, we will require Kampers to sleep head to foot and they will be encouraged to avoid any direct contact.

All sporting equipment will be provided for your Kamper. There is no need to send sports equipment. Personal gear can be used, but there is limited storage space and Kanakuk Ministries cannot be held liable for loss or damage to personal sports equipment.

Like you, our intent is to protect your Kampers heart and privacy. If bed wetting occurs, bunks are stripped, cleaned, and changed prior to cabin mates returning to the cabin/teepee.
