Talladega Throwdown

Terms 1, 2, 4


Buckle up and start your engines folks – it’s a go fast, turn left, jorts-wearing, freedom screaming, hotdog eating, Ray-Bans rocking kinda day! This ultimate rush of uber-fast cars and a checkered flag fiasco will have your engine roaring. Remember, it’s business in the front and party in the back!


Tiki Wiki Luau

Terms 3, 5


Aloha! It’s ukuleles for everyone in this pineapple paradise extravaganza as the islands come to life! That’s right, it’s sure to be a limbo good time, full of crazy kebabs, and partying palm trees. Grass skirts, flower leis, and Hawaiian shirts are a no-brainer in this South Pacific shindig! Grab your surfboard and hula up – the tide is rising!


Space Slam

Terms 1, 2, 4


3, 2, 1 blast off as outer space invades in full galactic force!  Where planets are a-plenty and aliens are the norm, this party is lacking only in oxygen! Grab your glow-in-the-dark get-up, snag your go-go shoes, and get yo self to the asteroid belt… the Milky Way madness is just beginning!


The Midnight Mystery

Terms 3, 5


Sherlock, we have a problem! This one leaves us scratching our heads, all asking the same question: “Who did it?” Snag a magnifying glass, a top hat, and a notepad because the clock is ticking fast as we arrive with one single clue… will it be enough? A detective’s dream awaits – but a mystery is in the making as midnight looms!

Flannels and Flapjacks

Terms 1, 2, 4


Calling all lumberjacks in denim and plaid! You haven’t seen this much flannel since the blowout sale at your local thrift store! It’s a real life Lincoln log hoedown overflowing with beanies, beards, bratwursts, and bonfires. This backwoods blowout will leave you chanting, “We want s’more!”

Tour America

Terms 3, 5


The U. S. of A. just got a whole lot rowdier as we bounce from the lights of NYC to the glamour of Hollywood in one epic evening. The Nashville nights, the Austin sights, and the Rocky Mountain heights have got you wondering what in the USA is next! Grab your fanny pack, fill the suitcase, and pack a polaroid for this high-mileage ride!


Finding Komo

Terms 3, 5


It’s a snorkel and goggles type of night as we find ourselves under the sea! That’s right – party on—aqua style! Goldfish make up the snack of the night, and a popular outfit choice as well, in this underwater utopia featuring Nemo, Dory, Captain Hook, and Ariel! This wacky water uproar brings an entirely new meaning to the term K-Wet!

WHY WE DO PARTIES

Theme parties are a foundational piece of what Joe White and Kanakuk do each and every summer! Our exciting and over-the-top parties are a Kamp favorite and provide the opportunity for Kampers to grow in confidence, make new friends, and have a ton of fun! All of these elements combine to carry out Joe White and Kanakuk's mission of equipping next generation leaders.

Which Parties will my Kamper participate in?

To see which parties your Kamper should be prepared for, start by selecting their Kamp at the top of the page. Each Kamp offers different parties to their Kampers, and sometimes change based on term, so be sure to plan for the parties that will be offered during your Kamper’s term.

 

How elaborate do costumes need to be?

When it comes to preparing your Kamper’s costumes, the sky is the limit! We strive to offer costume ideas for every level of ability—so whether your Kamper wants to bring a simple costume or dress to the nines, we’re pretty sure they’re going to have a blast no matter what!

 

Are Kampers supervised during parties?

Like all activities that are offered at Kanakuk, your Kamper will remain under the care of our professional staff during all parties at Kanakuk. Parties give our staff the unique opportunity to join in the fun and bring their best costumes and excitement to every party we offer!

 

What if my Kamper doesn’t want to bring a costume?

Kampers aren’t required to bring a costume for any of the parties we offer, but as a Kamper favorite for decades, we think they should! Parties have the ability of creating memories for Kampers in a safe and clean environment, free from the things our world tells us we need.

 

Who should I contact if I have more questions?

If you have additional questions about this year's parties or need any assistance with your Kamper’s registration, email reg@kanakuk.com and one of our wonderful registrars will assist you!
