Kako Retreat Center is a non-profit Christian organization providing Christ-centered retreats, youth camps, workshops, seminars and counseling to encourage and benefit people living in remote Alaskan villages of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta region. Kako is located by the Yukon river 400 miles west of Anchorage and the nearest road system. Approximately 30,000 Yupik, 1000 Athabascan, and 4000 non-native people live in the YK Delta area.
Kako is strategically centered with twenty four villages within a half hour flight, and 56 within an hour flight from Kako’s airstrip. Small planes are the only efficient means of transportation.
The first weekend in August, around 30 ladies from surrounding isolated villages are flown in to enjoy fellowship & teaching, and of course lots of berry picking – blueberries, cranberries, & blackberries.
Each year we are encouraged from the Word by a different speaker. Add to this good music, good food, lots of sharing and laughter and even a chocolate fountain and you have a great weekend. The Ladies love it they leave Kako refreshed and rejoicing in our Great God, His Creation and His People.
Cost is approximately $2,500 for this trip.
