Kanuga Calendar

Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday

Summer Guest Period

For more than 85 years, family and friends have gathered each summer for a beloved tradition at Kanuga. Generations overlap and friendships are renewed in our welcoming Christian community.

Daily activities are offered for all ages, with no pressure to do anything. Stay for a week or longer and allow Kanuga to provide your meals and housekeeping, leaving you to rest, worship and play.

Activities include artisan crafts, Bible study, kickball games, tennis, vespers, yoga and nightly family entertainment. Everyone enjoys the perennial favorites: swimming, boating, hiking, rocking on our lakefront porch and visiting with friends.

We also offer reasonably priced off-site trips, like whitewater rafting, zipline canopy excursions, local winery tours and more.
