Camp Sankanac is a great place for kids to spend a week (or more) at Summer Camp!
Camp Sankanac is a marvelous Christian Camp in Spring City, PA. Camp Sankanac has 4 weeks of boys' camp and 4 weeks of girls' camp every summer. Each week has a fun theme.

What do you do at Camp Sankanac?
Each week has a special theme
Kids go to camp for one week (from Sunday afternoon to Saturday morning). Each week is given a special theme. The boys' themes tend to be more competitive and athletic in nature, and the girls' themes tend to be less competitive or non-competitive games, skits, hunts and the like. The themes play out in the evening activities and the skits during campfires and chapel time. All campers have Bible time and elective classes in the morning, and free time, rest time, and cabin activities in the afternoon. Campers attend chapel in the evening and have campfires. Some popular boys' themes include Army/Navy week, Mission Impossible, Goo Week, and Sankanac Survivor. Some popular girls' themes include Holidazed, Back to the Future, Mission Impossible, Extreme Sankanac Makeover and CSI (Camp Sankanac Investigation). There is also a special Horse Camp certain weeks for girls.
"Deathball" -- A favorite game during boys camp!

Ranks may be earned in one week, or campers can progress through the ranks continuing each year they are at camp.

You need a sleeping bag and a flashlight to take to camp!
