“Camp Sankanac has been a haven to me for 12 summers. I have met many wonderful Christian people of different backgrounds and ages. My camp co-workers have always been an encouragement to me through their walk with God, the great fellowship, and abundant laughter! Seeing God work in the campers is also encouraging. God does amazing things here at Sankanac, and each week we can testify of His grace and goodness to campers and staff alike!”

– Lisa, Pennsylvania

“It is truly hard to put into words just how incredible Camp Sankanac is. As a camper, my whole year would revolve around those summers there at camp and meeting back up with some of my best friends that I hadn’t seen the whole year. As a counselor I still can’t get enough. It is awesome and humbling at the same time to see God use us to bring boys and girls to his kingdom in such an amazing setting such as Camp Sankanac. The relationships and people I have met at Camp S have done so much to also encourage my walk with Christ. When summertime comes around anyone will tell you that the only place to be is at is Camp Sankanac……just the truth.”

– Shane, California

“I have been on the summer staff at Camp Sankanac for five summers now. It is an awesome place to be! Not only do you get the chance to work for God and help in spreading the Gospel; the friendships you make and the memories from your camp experience will be with you for the rest of your life! Having helped at other camps which were also enjoyable its Camp Sankanac that I keep returning to, there is just something different about Sankanac. From the moment you arrive you feel welcome until the moment you leave, and you certainly feel God’s presence as he uses you to further His kingdom. If you love the Lord and are seeking the chance to work for Him, Camp Sankanac is the place for you this summer.”

– Kathryn, N. Ireland

“As a camper of 7 years, and as I approach my second year of counseling I continually look forward to experiencing the summer that God has in store for me at Camp Sankanac. I’ve always felt God’s presence the strongest at Camp S, and I know that He watches over Camp S in a special way. Each summer brings new adventures and blessings in my walk with God, and each year I mature in my faith. I believe that God has blessed Camp S with staff that afford each person with an amazing opportunity for fellowship. The fellowship among Christian brothers and sisters while at Camp S has provided me with some of the most genuine friendships in my life. I know that God’s plan for my life has always included Camp S, and I hope and pray that He continues to use me in Camp S’s ministry.”

– JuDonn, New Jersey

“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!”
