Kanuga Stories

Conference visitors, camp counselors, and lodging guests talk
about how it feels to be “home” among the pines at Kanuga.


Experience Kanuga
The staff ensured guests were received with water and assistance from the moment they arrived... and throughout their stay. Staff, coordinators and volunteers worked together using carts to transport luggage and golf carts to help those staying in the Historic Cottages get from the Lobby of the Lodge to their accommodations. It's heartwarming to see that initiative.
The Rev. Anthony Guillen, Nuevo Amanecer Coordinator
Nothing like a place where strangers become family. Traditions are passed down through each generation. Where sitting on the porch without 'modern noise' can calm the spirit while you hear the laughter of children catching fireflies.

A little bit of heaven! Love this place.
Clayton Ryan

Kanuga is a special place for me as it has been the one constant on my spiritual journey. I might move from town to town, but I always come home to Kanuga.
