A Place Set Apart


Summer 2019 Schedule

Our Summer 2019 schedule is now available!  We have new opportunities available in 2019.  Several of our camps will begin on a Sunday this year and we will be doing Adventure Camp again in 2019. 

Registration will be opening soon also, so keep checking back. You do not want to miss out on the exciting opportunities that await you at Camp Tanako.

Family Camp

Looking for a low-key, family focused introduction to camping at Tanako?  If so, join us for Family Camp August 2-3, 2019.  Children of all ages and their families are invited for an overnight stay complete with all of the fun activites that Tanako has to offer.  

Ropes Course

Horseback Riding

Outpost Tanako

For children and youth during the summer, Camp Tanako offers a classic camp experience as a tool for growing faith in young people. Kayak, canoe, sing, swim, worship, cook out, hike, and experience the challenge course all while learning about God’s love for us. For older campers, we offer horseback riding, zip lining, and exciting opportunities to travel off-site to experience more amazing wilderness areas in Arkansas. Programs are designed to provide unique experiences, new for many campers. This is accomplished through small group living, where eight to 12 young people are paired with two counselors for the week, making age-appropriate decisions together about their activities for the week.

+ General Info

The American Camp Association is a community of camp professionals who, for over 100 years, have joined together to share our knowledge and experience and to ensure the quality of camp programs.

We want campers to venture out of their comfort zones and learn new skills. With plenty of adult support from counselors and other staff along the way, our hope is that campers will begin or continue to express their individuality.

Camp Tanako strives to provide safe and supportive opportunities for children and youth to further explore the world, and themselves as part of a “mini monastic” community environment, to intentionally expand boundaries.

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.
