90 Years of Kuriakos


Community comes together around the dinner table. Since 1930, shared meals have been a mainstay of Kuriakos.

Our Anniversary Project is a different sort of History Book; it's a record of the many table graces (and stories, and songs, and memories) that form a part of our life at Kuriakos.

During our programs, we encourage our campers and families of all ages to say grace at mealtimes... and to take that habit home with them.

Inside, discover all our classic graces, plus many new ones created by recent staff teams. And, you can read some special memories from members of the Kuriakos Community over the past 90 years.

Our History



Here's a little of God's story at Kuriakos.
On a Saturday in June, 1931, Danish settlers from the Dickson area approached a local farmer about donating part of his land for a Lutheran camp. Nick Isaacson stood up from his rocking chair on the porch of his house and offered the 17 acres of lakefront land that became the base for Kuriakos. The price? Just $1. 

Through its years, God has been faithful, and Kuriakos has continued to grow. Camping in the twenty-first century looks very different than camping in 1930, but the fundamentals are the same. Kuriakos relies on support from its members, people who have experienced the life enhancing benefits of outdoor ministry. Members are involved by attending programs, volunteering, praying, offering financial donations, and inviting friends to participate in Kuriakos' programs.

The mission of Kuriakos has never changed. Kuriakos exists to provide an outdoor space in which people can be encountered by the Living God, through activity, community, and worship.

Some of the Details:

Two parcels of land have been purchased since that initial gift. In 1992 and 2001, local land was purchased to allow for future growth and programming opportunities. Currently, a soccer field and wilderness camping site have been situated on these properties. Both of these properties are important parts of the future for Kuriakos as facility and activity areas.
