In 1926, C.L. Ford opened Kuggaho Camp for boys, located on the shores of Lake Taneycomo in Branson, MO, where Our K-1 Kamp remains today. Over the last 92 years, God has richly blessed Kanakuk as we've grown from a single camp to a family of ministries that impact individuals worldwide.

Kanakuk Ministries not only operates our six overnight Christian sports camps, but also serves individuals through our outreach ministries, providing evangelism, spiritual training, food, health, education, and more.
