Parent’s Weekend

Come join us for a weekend in Branson, MO to take in the beautiful Ozarks autumn and get a taste of what life is like for students at the Institute.

October 15-16, 2021

We encourage you to come on Friday afternoon and stay for the weekend. You will be able to enjoy time with your student and some group activities as well.

The weekend will begin on Friday in the classroom where we provide an overview of what your students are learning and why this is a wise investment in their future. This will be followed by activities on campus with a bonfire and/or games. 

Join us Saturday morning for the First Annual Pickleball and Cornhole Tournaments. Sign up for the fun when you register. We will gather together on the Kanakuk Institute campus at 12:00 for a picnic in the Pavillion. Later that afternoon we will go to Sight & Sound Theatre together to see the Jesus Live on Stage show.  

These events are optional, but we would encourage you to attend as many as possible, especially the time at K-Kauai and the afternoon/evening events on Friday night and Saturday morning.
