Camping Ministries

Let's Go to Camp!

Hundreds have developed a close relationship with Jesus Christ through the

camping programs at Wilderness, and now YOU can become part of the "Wilderness

Experience."  Footsteps Camps, a series of camps at Wilderness, are led and staffed by members of the KNUMC congregation. Currently, there are three Footsteps Camps annually:  Footsteps, 3/4ths..., Footsteps..., and Footsteps, too...

Footsteps... is for campers entering grades 5 through 7 and focuses on team-building and Bible study (along with lots of fun and games). Footsteps, too... is for campers entering grades 8 through 11 and focuses on leadership using puppetry as its primary method of building worship leaders (along with lots of fun and games). Both Footsteps... and Footsteps, too... are six-day, five-night camps, are held concurrently, and have some interaction.

Campers are involved in swimming, paddle boarding, Wacky Olympics, fishing, crafts, praise songs, individual and team recreation, campfires, cookouts, nature adventures, and many more activities. Get the picture? All camps are fun-packed with Christian education, teaming opportunities, leadership development, and, of course, fun and games.

Our camping leadership is currently working on a plan to start a fourth Footsteps Camp in the near future. This one will be geared toward special-needs campers. Keep checking this page and our camp newsletter at for more information.

Not yet ready to let your child go alone? Choose Grand Camp where a grandparent can go with a grandchild between the ages of 5 and 7, or Family Camp for the whole family. There is a wide variety of camps for nearly any age and interest. As the camping season approaches a complete list of available camps will be posted on this page.

Camp voucher codes and additional information on volunteer/counseling opportunities are available by contacting the church office or Carolyn and Jerry Akins (660 563 4753). Hope to see YOU at camp this year for faith, fun, and fellowship.
