A spark in the heart of our city!


For over 60 years, Camp DaKaNi has served Oklahoma City as the only full-service youth camp in the heart of our metro. Translated to "a day in the out-of-doors," Camp DaKaNi invites kids of all ages to unplug, unwind, and make friends during an exciting week of outdoor activities like the rock wall, zip line, archery, and Gaga Ball.


Camp DaKaNi allows kids to experience the wonder, challenges, and self-discovery that can only be found outdoors! Each camper will be challenged in new ways in a nurturing, encouraging environment to build self-worth, confidence, and communication skills within their own peer group, or "Home in the Woods."

We expect sessions to fill fast, so reserve your spot today!
