Day Camp

Serving Kids in the rising grades of 1st -7th of the Hot Springs and Garland County Areas

Camp Tanako is excited to offer a Day Camp program for families in our local mission field!  A week long program that runs for eleven weeks over the summer, ideal for children who are beyond the age of the baby-sitter but are not ready to be home by themselves.  This camp is a special experience that gives your camper the opportunity to be outside playing and learning about God’s creation.

Day Camp is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am – 5:00 pm.  Day campers take part in traditional Tanako activities like archery, arts and crafts, environmental education, swimming and so much more.  Lunch and two snacks are provided by Tanako.

Each day is centered in a Christian atmosphere with opportunity for small group Bible studies.  Each week will feature a new theme and lesson from scripture to keep the day camp fresh for campers who attend multiple weeks.

Campers may be brought to camp or picked up from a designated pick up location (transportation fee) each morning and afternoon.

“We love sending our children to Camp Tanako.  They get to experience God’s love from the great counselors and staff.  The activities keep the busy all day.  I’m so happy they get to enjoy nature all summer long in a safe nurturing environment!” Brandi D.

Our Approach To Camping Ministry
Camp Tanako’s mission 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 spending time in community and respond to the call of the Holy Spirit.  Participants in the ministry at Camp Tanako leave this setting to return to local congregations revitalized to engage in local community and congregational ministries with a renewed empowerment and relationship with God. The ministries of the Spirit that happen in this beautiful setting take children, youth, and adults into a place apart. A place where they are valued and loved, where they try new things that build confidence and broaden horizons. At camp people are given unique opportunities to grow into who God plans for them to be. Camp is a part of the process that begins in home and local churches. Camp is full of rich experiences that immerse participants in an array of opportunities to meet Christ face to face. Experiences at Camp Tanako offer participants an opportunity for spiritual revival by shifting their focus from the trappings and stress of daily life to the One who is the Source of Life. Those experiences that happen at camp translate back to local churches. It is our goal to fan an ember or flame that has been sparked in the local church. This flame is encouraged to burn brighter through camp experiences.
