Since 1941, Camp Sankanac has been offering a premier summer youth camp experience like none other. What started off as just a few weeks of Boys’ Camp & Girls’ Camp has developed into so much more! While we still offer our popular and unique all boys and all girls camp, we now run day camps, horse camps, basketball camps, and more! We offer all of the usual fun camp activities you’d expect from a traditional summer camp experience like campfires, sleeping under the stars, crazy games, crafts, waterfront activities, swimming, night games, and fun competitions…but we also offer so much more! Camp Sankanac is open to boys and girls, ages 7-16, regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin.

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.

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!).
