Summer church camps give children and youth the chance to encounter God through nature, solitude, and a Christian community to build leaders for today and tomorrow.

2022 Summer Camp Schedule:
The CCK Outdoor Ministries team has six, age-appropriate, camp sessions and three specialty camps are planned for the 2022 Summer Camp Season. This year’s theme, “What’s in a Name,” will explore the power and meanings we apply to names and how God equips us to care for others.
Church promotional packets that include the 2022 camp schedule, volunteer opportunities, registration information, and more have been sent to church offices for posting and distribution. All Camps are scheduled at Disciples Center at Tawakoni, near Augusta, beginning at 1 p.m. and finishing by 10 a.m. unless otherwise stated. See camp schedule for age restrictions, dates, and fees.
Camp Promotional Materials:
Camp Leadership Volunteers:
Our camp program and ministries depend on hundreds of volunteer hours to be successful. From lifeguards, challenge course facilitators, and group game and activity instructors to directors, chaplains, and counselors to nurses and maintenance workers, it takes us all.
All summer volunteers are asked to fill out a volunteer application form including references and attend the spring training event “It’s All About the Campers.” For the safety of the children we work with, all volunteers are required to pass a background check.
Summer Leadership Interns:
Each summer Tawakoni hires four to six Summer Leadership Interns to assist with a variety of tasks and activities including maintaining the pool, lifeguarding, tending campfires, leading games, serving food, washing dishes, facilitating challenge course activities, tending grounds, and more. They’ve even been known to step in as counselors when needed, and to lead music and energizers!
Qualified applicants have completed their first year in college, love children and the camp, have a specific camp skill (i.e., Lifeguard) to share with the program, have demonstrated their reliability and ability to work collaboratively with others.
2022 Camp Registration:
April 2022 COVID-19 Update: At this time face masks, will not be required at camp. Our staff is monitoring the situation and we will keep you informed of any changes.
The 2022 registration fees reflect an increase from previous years due to the recent increase in camp utility costs. Camp scholarship money is available, usually in the amount of 25% of the registration fee, for families who have need. Many churches also offer funding to help their kids attend camp. Contact your church office for details. The scholarship deadline is March 31.
The camp registration fee includes lodging & meals, program expense, an onsite nurse, a camp theme T-shirt, and a water bottle, and $10 for the camp maintenance fund. Register online below, or through your Engage account. Registration and health forms are also available through your church office. Register before April 30 and SAVE $40!
Registration will close two weeks prior to each camp session or when a session reaches maximum compacity. A waitlist will be maintained in the Topeka Regional Office. For online registration assistance, call the Topeka Regional Office, 785-266-2914, or email [email protected].
NOTE: Begining in 2020 we are encouraging all participants to register through our online portal. PDF registration forms are available from any regional office upon request.
