Kanuga’s Mission

Kanuga is a gathering place inviting all people to connect with each other, nature, and the Creator.

Kanuga’s Core Values

We seek a world of good by providing programs that transform and nourish the soul for work beyond Kanuga.

We honor the image of God in every person and offer radical hospitality to all guests while striving for a work environment that supports staff with living wages and quality benefits.

We treasure God’s gift of creation and commit to using sustainable models that have the least impact on our land and resources.

We give generously while using our inheritance wisely, utilizing our resources responsibly so that Kanuga is preserved for future generations.

Kanuga Stories

Conference planners, camp counselors, and guests talk about how it feels to “come home” to 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.

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.
