Our Mission

Kuriakos exists to proclaim the Gospel of Christ, to encourage and disciple.

Kuriakos is a community set apart for all people to grow together in Christ.


In all our decisions, from program to property, staffing to marketing, we ask ourselves "does what I'm doing foster belonging, growth and relationship?" If it doesn't do those things, we stop doing it. These are the most crucial aspects of camp life that our campers have loved about Kuriakos for 90 years. We believe this is the type of community God is calling us to be, and we think this is what people today need in order to know abundant life. Through challenge courses and meal service, worship time or waterfights, God speaks in this place, drawing his people in close and sparking imagination for the future.


"And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ"

- Romans 1:6

We are created and accepted by God.

We are each a key part of the camp community. Our staff work to ensure every camper is safe to be in this place, while practicing and teaching hospitality and grace.

Camp is about meeting new people and learning how to make friends. And how to be a friend.


Instead, speaking the truth in love, we grow up into Him who is the Head, that is Christ. From Him, the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

- Ephesians 4:15-16

Through learning the Christian story, we grow in relationship with God, self, and creation.

Through challenge and fun, campers grow spiritually, mentally, and physically.

Camp is about trying new things and learning how to succeed. And how to try again.


For we are God's workers; you are God's field, God's building.

- 1 Corinthians 3:9

We live our best life in relationship with God.

We live our best life in relationship with each other.

Camp is about joining a community and drawing support from others. And giving back.
