Our Mission

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

Kuriakos is a place set apart for all people to be together.

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 over 80 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.

  • Togetherness

    For we are God's workers; you are God's field; God's buildling.

    - 1 Corinthians 3:9

  • Growth

    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

  • Belonging

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

    - Romans 1:6

Growing Adventure

Without losing who we are, we believe God has a big future in store for our ministry.  The first phase of Growing Adventure involves making use of our farm land.  We’re working closely with a Landscape Architecture class at NAIT in order to design a trail system and turn the agricultural land back to forest—to be used for camping, biking, skiing, hiking, navigating; during our programs and by the local community.
Check back here for updates as we move forward on these exciting projects.  We hope that you will invest in the future of Kuriakos as part of the future of your family.
