Outdoor Education

For many years, Camp Sankanac has been partnering with homeschool groups, as well as Christian and private school groups to provide a unique educational experience.  Our Outdoor Education Program uses the Bible and God’s creation to enhance and reinforce subjects learned at home or in the classroom.  Please click OE Info for sample schedule and registration form.

Who is it for? 

Homeschool co-ops and Christian Schools.

Where is it held? 

Camp Sankanac is the perfect place to study nature.  God has blessed Sankanac with many different ecosystems such as: young and old forests, fields, wet-lands, a pond and French Creek which runs right through the middle of camp!

When is it held? 

Autumn and spring are the best times, however, we can schedule an event anytime during the school year.

Why is this program here?

To give students the opportunity to study and learn about God and His creation.

Underground Railroad

The Underground Railroad exhibit is a presentation available to school groups and teaches about slavery and the Underground Railroad.

Did you know that the Apache cabin at Camp Sankanac was part of the Underground Railroad? Taken in the late 1800’s, see actual photographs of the Massey’s and their homestead here on our property. See actual artifacts that were used to control slaves and keep them in bondage. We invite you to come learn about their quest for freedom, the atrocities of slavery, and the heart issues behind it.
