Opening Day 2017 | Kanakuk Kamps
Opening Day 2017

Kamp is in full swing! With several terms to go, here’s the rundown on all things Opening Day!


From the pillow-toting run through, the game-day style announcement, to a high-energy pool party and the hilarious opening skit, K-Seven makes sure a Kamper's first few hours are non-stop fun!


This one-week kamp has welcoming kids down to a science because we know that first impressions are crucial and will set the tone for the rest of the week! Kampers and their parents can arrive any time ‪between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. They will stop by the office and get officially checked in, complete with the snapping of a photo that will be emailed out to parents for confirmation of arrival. After any necessary medicine check-ins, they are off to be introduced to their counselors and the rest of Kamp!

Dozens of college students fill the streets in anticipation for each Kamper to be announced. Once they are introduced, it's time to head to the teepee to get settled in! After the teepee is all accounted for, it's time for a pool party! All of this is followed by a picnic and some shoppin' at the Kanakuk Store


The night's finale is the Opening Ceremonies skit, which sets the storyline for the rest of week through hilarious characters and adventures. Things wind down a bit with the first teepee devotional and prayer. All this followed with what we hope will be a good night sleep in preparation for the best week ever!
