The Kanakuk Child Protection Plan (CPP) is a comprehensive safety system to prevent, detect or respond to physical, emotional, verbal, or sexual abuse in youth and children's programming.

 

 

“I asked two of my partners, both former United States Attorneys with vast experience in prosecuting crimes against children, to assist me in reviewing the extensive materials regarding Kanakuk’s plan.  We found the materials to be well-researched, current with best thinking on how to prevent child exploitation, practical and pointed.  In our opinion, these materials evidence Kanakuk’s substantial commitment to and investment of resources to the protection of children from would-be predators.  In our opinion, yours is a first-rate program.”  


John Ashcroft, former U.S. Attorney General

What are People Saying about the Kanakuk Child Protection Plan

"Let me say first, your CPP is clearly the best and most comprehensive treatment of the subject that I have come across in over 30 years of work in Christian Education."
Dennis Queen, Superintendent Retired
Mingo Valley Christian School, Oklahoma
“The Kanakuk Child Protection Plan has greatly impacted the ministry of Forest Home. It has encouraged us to be vigilant to not only protect kids, but to make this an unsafe camp for predators. We were challenged to evaluate everything from insurance coverage and facility design to training and abuse response."
Liz Stevenson, HR Manager
Forest Home Youth Camp, California
“The 241 steps of child abuse prevention your program offers sets the bar for this Industry. No operation in the camping universe will ever be risk free but I sure like the odds of the camp/conference center operation that goes through your program and implements your practices.”
Ron Norton, Sr. Vice President
K&K Insurance Group, Inc.
“Kanakuk’s Child Protection seminar opened my eyes to our vulnerability and gave me solutions to address the problem. We literally changed camp procedures on the way home from the conference.”
