Camp Wakonda

About Camp Wakonda

Camp Wakonda is an outdoor ministry camp that opens its doors every summer to Canton and broader Northeast Ohio youth. We offer week-long camps for students completing grades 2-12, as well as shorter 1- and 2- night stays for younger campers and families. We also host private retreats and guest groups. We explore as much faith, fellowship, and adventure as we can throughout each week, following a biblical curriculum and offering pathways specific to different interests each week (including some camper favorites: Wakonda's Got Talent and Escape Wakonda camp)! We welcome campers of all different faith, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

“I loved the environment of Camp Wakonda. The Camp Director and staff are so welcoming and truly want to see you grow as a person and together as a community. This was my first year working as a camp counselor and at this camp, but I felt at home as soon as I got to know the staff. I loved watching the kids grow throughout the week in their faith as they slowly embraced camp for what it truly is. I also loved watching how I personally grew through each trial I encountered with campers, weather, planning, etc. Coming out of a COVID year, this experience of gaining a true family and participating in camp fun was just what I needed. ”
