Kanuga Conference Center
Join fellow camp & youth development professionals in Hendersonville, NC this fall for 3-days of quality professional development and networking opportunities, plus an exhibit hall, round table sessions, and our infamous SE Auction! Featuring keynote speakers Peg Smith and Michael Thompson, PhD, this is a conference that you will not want to miss!
Affiliated with the Episcopal Church since 1928, Kanuga Conferences is situated on 1,400 mountain acres near Hendersonville, North Carolina, with scenic Kanuga Lake at its center. They welcome more than 25,000 guests annually to the year-round conference center, Camp Kanuga, Camp Bob and the Mountain Trail Outdoor School.
Service Project for Camp Bob
Every Year ACA, SE gives back to the local community we are holding our conference in. This year we are honored to help Camp Bob. Camp Bob is an extention of Camp Kanuga.
Camp Bob provides an uplifting, positive summer experience to children who, for whatever reason, might not be able to attend camp. This gives them the opportunity to learn and develop lifelong skills that they can apply at home in their own communities. Through overnight, outdoor activities on our campus here in western North Carolina, campers learn through a foundation of trust, hope and love. Thanks to sponsorship from more than 20 churches and other organizations in 18 cities across the Southeast, Camp Bob serves more than 1,000 children each summer at no cost to them or their families.
