About KAA 2

Specifically designed with middle-school-age youth in mind, KAA2 offers more than 20 intense, athletic and recreational activities. From water tubing on the lake to archery to recording original music at the G.H.O.P. recording studio (short for God Honors Our Praise), Campers create lasting memories and learn the importance of building a firm, Christian foundation at KAA 2. Our outstanding collegiate staff ensure that God’s word is emphasized at every turn, and KAA 2 campers leave encouraged, equipped and empowered.
