  • Horsemanship Camp (Not AVAILABLE FOR 2023)

    Horsemanship Camp (Not AVAILABLE FOR 2023)

    The camp has paused summer horsemanship camps for the foreseeable future.

    Over the next few years the leadership of Camp Nakamun will be restructuring the summer ranch experience and year-round operation of the Nakamun Ranch. The Horsemanship program has incurred a significant financial loss every year, which puts great strain on the operation of Camp Nakamun as a whole.

    The Ranch infrastructure also needs great investment to complete the development that began in 2016. Some of the needs are for a proper dining room and meeting space, upgrades needed for the washroom facility, etc.

    With the ongoing pandemic and challenges of the last two years, putting great strain on Camp Nakamun, this decision was not made lightly but with much prayer and discussion.

    Camp Nakamun’s goal is to keep camper fees as low as possible. To put our financial situation in perspective, the fees for each camper never cover their full cost. Campers on the main site are subsidized by over $100, while in the ranch program, the campers are subsidized by over $500. It is just not sustainable to continue in this way.

    During this time, our goal will be to create a plan for both operational and financial success so that we can welcome campers back to the ranch as soon as possible

  • Paintball Camp (Grades 7-11)

    Paintball Camp (Grades 7-11)

    Our paintball program is designed to give the boys as much time on the field as possible. Campers will learn technique, skills, and equipment maintenance in between playing a variety of paintball games. In the evenings, campers will also get to try our main camp activities such as the zip line and king swing.

    Our paintball campers are separate from the main camp, with their own facilitators and cabin leaders. This allows for the campers to spend time together hanging out, playing games, doing devotionals, and having a fun time at the campfire.

    Activities: A whole lot of paintball, campfires, fire building, archery, axe throwing, tubing, pool, zipline, climbing wall, king swing.

    Camp begins at 4:00pm and ends at 5:00pm. Drop off and pick up are at our Main site.
