Summer at Kanuga

Faith, Family, Friendship



Dates for 2024 & 2025

Reservations opening soon.

Summer at Kanuga is a multi-generations-long program that invites newcomers to experience Kanuga as well. This is truly a time to connect with each other, nature, and the Creator. A full program of scheduled activities with traditional “unplugged” events include bingo night, worship opportunities, pickle ball, 5K and fun runs, trivia, archery, wood carving, painting, fireside s’mores, and more. Swim and kayak on the lake, and make time for a few great hikes (and naps!).
