The Lodge Project

The Lodge Project

Dear Friends of Sankanac,

We are excited to announce that the 1st phase (The Gym Project) of Camp Sankanac’s capital campaign has been fully funded and is complete. Now we are preparing to move into the the 2nd phase of our capital campaign, The Lodge!

By God’s faithful provision and the generous support of many partners, we were able to complete the Gymnasium, which has met many pressing needs for our ministries… However, we are still in desperate need of additional housing and meeting spaces for our summer camps, retreats, rental groups, and other ministries! We have had to turn away campers and guest groups and restrict program sizes. We simply haven’t had the space to accommodate them.

Our campers and guests need a multi-purpose and residential building.

We need to build a lodge. Will you join us?

  • STEP ONE: Architectural and engineering designs, permits, and approvals. (Est. $85,000) (In progress)
Already raised $85,000
  • STEP TWO: Site work/ Septic Upgrade. (Est. $70,000)
Already raised: $120,925

Help build The Lodge!

Another need this building would meet, would be creating a home-base for Aleithia Learning Community (ALC) to utilize during the school year. ALC is a Christian, classical education group that has met at Camp Sankanac for over 30 years! We are excited to share that ALC will be joining us in helping fundraise for this building. A few ALC parents have already donated their time, creating the architectural and engineering designs, saving us tens of thousands of dollars. ALC and Camp Sankanac have been mutually blessed by each other’s partnership and shared vision of seeing youth and young adults trust in Christ and grow in their walk with the Lord.


  • Provide multi-purpose and central residential and meeting spaces so we no longer have to turn away campers, guest groups, and restrict the size of pre-existing/new ministries.


  1. Adds up to 48 beds, doubling our housing capacity for cliffsiders, specialty camp programs (Basketball Camp, Horse Camp, etc.), summer staff housing, main camp retreats and guest groups, etc.
