Camper Retreat

Can’t get enough of Sankanac during the summer? Why not join us for our annual camper retreats? Camper retreats are an opportunity for campers to get away mid-school year to refocus, connect, and be encouraged.  Come spend a couple days back at camp seeing old friends, hanging out with counselors, playing crazy camp games, worshipping, and studying God’s word.


Ages 11-16

This is a super fun & friendly way for a new friend to experience Sankanac!

CABINMATES/AGES: This retreat is for all kids, ages 11-16. If you were a Creekside camper last year but have turned 11yo, we welcome you to attend this retreat. We encourage campers to invite a new friend as this weekend is a small taste of summer camp & is the perfect way for a new camper to see camp in a super friendly environment. You are welcome to request one mutual cabinmate for this retreat & you will have the opportunity to do so during the online registration process.

SPECIAL DIETS: We are experienced with accommodating special dietary needs. But we need your help with making us aware of dietary restrictions & needs in advance so we can make sure your child’s mealtime experience here is great. Please fill in as much detail as possible in the special diet section of the retreat health form (part of the online registration already) & contact our cook (Erin at no later than the Monday prior to the weekend to discuss the menu & substitutions. Thank you!

MEDICATIONS: Please bring any medications your child may need in their original as prescribed containers. During drop off on Friday evening you will have the opportunity to discuss dosage & instructions with our staff who will be issuing the medications.




-Pillow/Sleeping Bag (Campers will stay in our winterized Cliffside cabins…they are toasty warm and have bathrooms)

-Weather Appropriate Clothing: It’s winter! We can get anything from balmy sunshine to snow…please pack according to weather conditions. We’ll most likely be enjoying the outdoors regardless! Boots, jacket/coat/hat/gloves, snow gear/sled if snow is forecasted, rain coat/boots if rain is forecasted, etc. Extra clothes are recommended in case we get messy.

-Shoes: We recommend packing solid sneakers or hiking boots (and an extra pair is a great idea!). If rain is forecasted, throw in a pair of rain boots if you have them.



We are praying that this weekend will be a refreshing & fun experience that will equip your child to take on the busy fall season & the rest of the school year! We hope they will come out & join us as we dig into God’s Word & focus on Him all while having an absolute BLAST with some whacky activities around camp! If you have any questions, please reply to this email or contact us at the number below. We hope to see you soon!
