Welcome to Camp Sankanac

Camp Sankanac is a non-denominational Christian Camp and retreat facility located between Reading and Philadelphia. We exist to encourage youth and adults to accept Christ as Savior and Lord and to lead them to mature in their Christian walk. This purpose is carried out through exciting summer youth camp programs, retreats for adults and children, and educational initiatives. Our facility also provides a great environment to host a variety of functions.

What others are saying about Camp Sankanac

Our girls had the week of their life!! They’ve never been away from is for more then a night, so we were nervous. But, they absolutely loved it. They made friends and made so so many special memories. They learned about God through his Word and through songs they still sing together.

Camper Parent, Summer Camp

It was an amazing weekend!  The speakers were great, the rooms were so comfy and beds so restful, great food, perfect weather, nice campfire on Friday night……the stars were so bright, (many of the ladies commented on that) and no mosquitoes or bugs to ruin our praise and testimonies around the fire.  Everyone wants to come again! and bring more ladies next time!  The Lord worked in many hearts we were challenged, encouraged and convicted to be rooted in Christ. We can’t thank you and the staff enough!

Retreat Guest, Retreats & Rentals

“I think Camp Sankanac is an amazing place to see God at work! You can see prayers answered and a life changed in just a few days…and not just for the campers, God is also at work in the staff. I’ve learned so much serving at Camp Sankanac, I’ve met great friends, had tons of fun and have seen God do some awesome things!”

Employee, Summer Staff

My son loved the boys camp at Sankanac! I definitely noticed a positive change after my son returned home from camp. He seemed so refreshed and relaxed. He came home with a heart of caring toward others. He was more patient and understanding of his younger siblings. Each staff person impacted my son in a positive way.

What Makes Sankanac so Special?

Why choose Camp Sankanac? There are plenty of other great camp and conference centers out there, right? Everyone who comes to Camp Sankanac says there is no place like it. So, what makes Camp Sankanac so special? There are endless answers to this question, but here’s four:

Our Focus

We exist to encourage youth and adults to accept Christ as Savior and Lord and to lead them to mature in their Christian walk. This purpose is carried out through summer camp programs, retreats, and educational initiatives. The Gospel and God’s Word is central in everything we do.

Our Location

We are located right between several major cities (Philadelphia, Reading, Harrisburg, Wilmington, Lancaster), yet our Camp is in a quiet, forested and historic area nestled along the beautiful French Creek. It’s a perfect getaway for your child, family or church!

Our History

We are located in a beautiful and historic area. Many of our buildings date back into the early 1800’s. Two camps were already using the property before BCM Intl. purchased it in 1941. Since that time, we’ve made an effort to keep all this history alive.

Our People

We are made up of almost 80 years of staff, campers, alumni, partners, and many others. It is these special people that make Camp Sankanac unique and special. We now have both new families, and multi-generational families attending Sankanac.
