Boys’ Camp & Girls’ Camp

Get ready to have the best week of your life! Crazy activities, challenges from God’s Word and fun with friends combine to ensure that you’ll have a week you won’t forget! Overnight camp is open for kids ages 7-16 and is divided into three villages. Creekside (7-10), Pinesite (11-12) and Cliffside (13-16) do some activities together during the day and eat meals at the same time. However, cabins are assigned by village and some activities and Bible lessons are done by a village so as to provide age-appropriate instruction. Camp Sankanac runs four weeks of Boys’ Camp (June- July) and then four weeks of Girls’ Camp (July-August).

Each week of camp is tied to a different theme. The purpose of our weekly theme is to add a fun twist to the regular camp daily schedule. The themes play out primarily in our evening activity and in mealtime skits during the week. The rest of our camp day is largely the same every week. In the morning, campers have Bible and elective classes. In the afternoon, campers have rest time, free time, and activity time with their own cabin. After the evening meal, campers participate in a large group game or activity that is tied to the weekly theme and then they end the day with a chapel service. Boy’s camp evening activities tend to be competitive and athletic in nature.

If you need more information or have any questions, please contact us at info@campsankanac.org, or call 610-469-6320

Cost: $395 ($100 deposit + $295)

Overnight Horse Camp

Camp Sankanac horse camps are run by equestrian professionals Erin Hails (Brick Lane Stables) & Diana Shirk (Silver Lining Farm) and their experienced staff. Erin and Diana both have many years of experience and look forward to working with the campers each summer in improving their confidence, knowledge and experience around horses and in their riding skills. Horse campers are sure to get plenty of time with the horses, not only riding and having a blast, but also learning important riding and horse care techniques. Our overnight horse camp programs give campers the best of both worlds…lots of time with the horses (individualized and group riding instruction, trail riding…even creek stomping with your horse!!)… AND all the best of Sankanac (Bible study, pool, boats, waterslide, crafts, camp store and more!).

If you are 16 years of age (or have completed 10th grade) and are considering a future in leadership or summer camp counseling, we highly recommend this program! The CIT program is 3 weeks of hands-on leadership training, giving you beneficial experiences and helpful preparation for the future leader. There are 2 weeks of training that focuses on spiritual growth, building counseling skills and leadership training as you prepare for the last week, which consists of staying in a cabin and assisting counselors with younger campers and program-related tasks. This program really gives you a taste of what summer camp counseling (and ministry in general) is all about. Whether you are looking at a future in summer camp ministry or any kind of leadership, this program is the perfect way to prepare and looks great on your future college application or resume! A certificate of completion will be provided for campers who complete this program. In between each week, CIT’s will go home from Saturday to Sunday.
