From WKYC's Board of Directors:
Out of an abundance of caution and concern for our campers and volunteers, we voted to cancel the 2020 summer sessions in our most recent virtual meeting with summer session directors. A number of factors influenced this extremely difficult decision, chief among those being the uncertainty of when government restrictions on group size and social gatherings would be lifted, as well as the general public health concerns surrounding COVID-19. A variety of sources informed our decision, including a survey that drew nearly 400 responses from camper parents/guardians and staff.

Experience community, connection, and Christ to the fullest this summer with an amazing network that cares about your journey to stronger faith.
Our Stronger Together Campaign offers strength for the journey. This campaign is about more than imparting Christian virtues, building relationships, or constructing great new facilities - it’s about developing a model for a transformative experience where our children encounter Christ together.
The Phase 1 new cabin construction project is half-way completed. Learn more about our new cabins and how you can make a difference here.
Are you ready for the best summer of your life?
WKYC is a Christian camp and retreat facility nestled in the rolling hills of Marion, KY. We help strengthen your faith with Gospel-centered Bible teaching, an amazing network of new friends and staff that you will soon call family, and more fun than you could possibly imagine.
Every year, we have anywhere from 500 - 600 staff who volunteer their time for free to make WKYC happen. They know just how powerful and life-changing the Gospel is, and believe WKYC is the best way to experience it.
"WKYC is my favorite place in the world, and has been for as long as I can remember. I’ve missed one year since the age of one. I never thought I could find a man who loved it like I do, but I think I just might have. 4 1/2 years ago, Zach came as a counselor, and it was my first year as a counselor. Long story short- it was pretty crazy with ups and downs since then, but every year at dad’s week of camp we were brought back together and having long talks on the swings or at the gazebo. One year, he told me at camp that he knew how he was going to propose to me one day (we were not even dating at this point by the way.) sure enough, years later it all fell into place. On July 13th, 2019 he asked me to marry him on the gazebo in front of so many of our friends and family. We got married on December 14th, 2019 and we have the intention of going to camp for the rest of our lives. It’s where we met, it’s our favorite place in the world, and is so special to us both."
