Summer Camps

Camp Andrew Jackson is one of Christian Appalachian Project's summer programs available to Appalachian children.Summer Camps

Every year, CAP offers two summer camp programs, Camp Andrew Jackson and Camp Shawnee. They provide a rewarding week of learning and fun to as many as 1,000 or more Appalachian children. The camps serve those who would otherwise not be able to afford to attend a summer camp, and many children look forward to it as their only vacation during the year.

Camp AJ is nestled in the Daniel Boone National Forest in McKee, KY.  It serves Jackson County and the surrounding counties. The full-service facility has a small lake and is surrounded by a beautiful forest. Camp Shawnee may be the longest, continuous running camp in Eastern Kentucky. It is a wilderness retreat of 300 acres and is located on the banks of Dewey Lake in Floyd County, Kentucky. It serves 15 surrounding counties and the state of West Virginia.  

Summer camp activities include swimming, hiking, canoeing, fishing, arts & crafts, campfires, praise & worship, field games, & talent show. While all the activities are fun for the children, they also provide the opportunity to learn important life skills such as leadership, safety, team building, self-esteem and respect for others.
