Family Camp is a unique opportunity for families to experience Camp Kahquah together. We offer four different weeks of Family Camp with similar formats, providing both structured and unstructured activities/programs. Not only is Family Camp a fun place to connect with family and friends, but it also provides opportunities for spiritual growth for all ages.
Our sandy beachfront is an ideal spot to relax in the sun and build sandcastles. Canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards are available for use as part of your stay. Looking for adventure? Try your hand at archery, watersports, the ropes course, or explore the hiking trails (nominal fee for some activities). After you take in the beauty of one of Kahquah’s iconic sunsets, finish your day off around a campfire with friends or search the night sky for a shooting star.
Family Camps begin Saturday at 3 pm and end the following Saturday at 10 am.
2023 Family Camp dates are:
Week 1: July 29 – August 5, 2023
Week 2: August 5 – August 12, 2023
Week 3: August 12 – 19, 2023
