Buddies Program

Here at Camp Sankanac, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to attend summer camp! This includes children with disabilities. In an effort to better server our campers with disabilities (and their families), we designed the Camp Sankanac Buddies Program. This program runs along-side our Day Camp Program but offers one on one staff supervision and care. The staff heading up the Buddies Program have been specially trained and prepared to serve and work with children with disabilities. If you, or someone you know, has a child with physical and/or developmental disabilities who might enjoy and benefit from attending a week of summer camp we would love to hear from you! You can contact us at info@campsankanac.org or call 610-469-6320

Cost: $400 ($100 deposit + $300)

Dates: Our Buddies Program will be available for every week of Day Camp. Day Camp runs for 9-10 weeks (June-August). Each week runs Monday-Friday.

–If your camper already has someone in mind that they would like to request as their “Sankanac Buddy” for this program, you can request their first & last name in the Friend Request option during registration.

Attention all boys and girls ages 7-16!! These all boy and all girl camps have been running since 1941 and offer a unique camp experience! Come join us for a great week of activities, outdoor adventures, and learning more about God. Camp Sankanac runs four weeks of boys’ camp (June-July) and four weeks of girls’ camp (July-August). From creek stomping to hilarious skits, to cooking over a fire, to paintball and arrow tag, to tubing, to braving our mountain-sized water slide you don’t want to miss the outdoor adventures that await during our four weeks of boys’ or girls’ camp.

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.

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!).

Tuesdays & Thursdays are our Trading Post days where campers can visit the snack/gift shop…feel free to send along spending money on those days. It is a busy and fun week!

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.
