About KAA 3

Located on the highest point of KAA's 240 acres, KAA 3 boasts spectacular high adventure activities where campers supercharge their thrill meter and sharpen their sports skills in concentrated specialty sports like football, basketball, mountain biking, volleyball and many others.  KAA 3 offers a foundational training ground for spiritual growth, as well as Covenant Family training—what God’s intended model of a family looks and functions like. The purpose is to build a solid foundation in each young believer's faith, while also imparting the truth of the Gospel to those who have not been introduced to the Savior.
