Restore & Renew: The Campaign for Kanuga

A new generation of visionary leaders has enthusiastically formed a $15 million capital campaign to renovate Kanuga’s central facilities so they once again match the scope of Kanuga’s mission.

Stage one of the campaign—renovating Kanuga Lake Inn—is complete. This phase earned nearly $6.5 million, thanks to the support of thoughtful donors. The almost 50-year-old Inn’s comprehensive renovation began in December 2015. Kanuga began welcoming guests to the Inn in June of 2016. The renewal of the Inn and its 61 guest rooms will attract thousands of new guests each year, generating an estimated $800,000+ annually in additional revenue. This historic progress allows Kanuga to continue offering a true Christian community welcoming individuals from all walks of life.

With your generosity, our plans to renovate the Lodge and Dining Rooms will become a reality. Your help is essential to our goal—ensuring a second century of Kanuga’s extraordinary service. Please pledge your support today.



Camp Kanuga Artisan Village

The Artisan Village at Camp Kanuga will engage young people in training, thinking, mentoring and working in hands-on trades, skills and arts that are not readily available most of the time.

Arts and skills from the regional history of Western NC will be taught, including:

  • Pottery
  • Blacksmithing
  • Woodworking
  • Leather work
  • Papermaking… And more

Your tax-deductible charitable contribution will help make the Camp Kanuga Artisan Village a reality. The total project cost is $200,000. Thanks to the support of generous donors, over $111,000 has already been raised. Please consider supporting Camp Kanuga today.
