Kinasao first hosted a one week family camp in the summer of 1940. Many facilities have been built in addition to the original log cabin, which now serves as the office. Kinasao has been developed to be a year round facility, and sees thousands of visitors each year through summer camps for kids and families, outdoor education programs for school, retreats for all ages throughout the year, as well as hosting rental groups throughout the year.  Although there have been many changes over the years, 

Kinasao remains a place set apart in God's creation, inviting all to experience God's love.
