Camp Tanako

A Place Set Apart

Camp Tanako, located near Hot Springs on beautiful Lake Catherine, has been a tradition of the United Methodist Church in Arkansas since 1948, and we hope for the opportunity to serve you.  Our mission here at Camp Tanako is to welcome children, youth, and adults to a place set apart where they can grow in their faith by experiencing God through nature and time spent in community and respond to the call of the Holy Spirit.  Christian camps are uniquely capable of impacting lives for Christ.  Whether you come as a guest on a retreat or come for a session of summer camp, this is a place where you can release your burdens, find Christ’s peace, and rest.
