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: $405 ($100 deposit + $305)

Girls’ Camp Weeks & Themes

Camp Sankanac is well-known as the greatest camp on earth and because of that, sinister sources and devious double-crossers are always trying to uncover the secrets to our success in order to bring us down. We need your help to prevent such a fiasco! Sign up to be an agent this week and defend Camp’s legacy from sneaky saboteurs!
If you’ve ever been to Camp before, then you have an MI story… Perhaps even a whole book’s worth of MI stories!  Well, it’s time to add another chapter–a Jurassic chapter!  Ever since the last day of summer 2021, Sankasaurus sightings have been on the rise!  However, the sightings are inconsistent with each other–the descriptions given just don’t match up.  Is it possible that there’s more than one dinosaur–maybe even several dinosaurs–on the Campgrounds?  Velociraptors? Pterodactyls? T-Rex?  Who knows what all is out there?!  Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to confirm and contain these ancient reptiles before it’s too late!!!

This week has become such a fan favorite that it’s hard to believe it has only been around for five years! During that time, we have all grown to love and look forward to the next Traber/Scott Day! This week will be packed full of traditional camp games and activities, but with one day set aside for some all-camp competition. Traber/Scott week has something for everyone! Come ready for tons of fun!

Two years ago we opened the doors of the Sankanac Museum of Natural History and we were blown away by your response!  The appreciation that you have shown for Sankanac’s collection of genuine artifacts and historical significance was inspiring–so much so that we decided to open the doors again, this time highlighting our extraordinary Second Floor exhibits!  Once again, rumors of mysterious happenings occurring at the museum have been flooding the local news outlets.  But are they just rumors?  Come check it out and decide for yourself!

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.
