Summer Activities Program

The Summer Activities Program offered by Lake Junaluska offers a way for residents and visitors to the lake to find community and make memories with events throughout the season.  Activities range from morning devotions to smores by the fire. Made possible through charitable giving, the program includes events for all ages and is a great way to connect with the Lake Junaluska family.
