Is the location of Sukkot a State Park?
No, Lake Paradise Resort is a privately owned camping destination, approximately 30 miles east of the Greater Kansas City area off of HWY 50. The park will still be open for a few regular RV dwellers who reside there year-round. The residents are accustomed to groups coming in, but let’s be courteous to them by keeping the noise in the camps to a minimum at night-time. This practice is a great courtesy, and much appreciated by other Sukkot Attendees who are trying to sleep after long fun days serving everyone at Sukkot. If you stay up late by the campfire, please keep your voices soft, always thinking of others.
Is Alcohol allowed at SukkotKC?
Deuteronomy 14:26 You may spend the money for whatever your heart desires: for oxen, or sheep, or wine, or strong drink, or whatever your heart desires; and there you shall eat in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice, you and your household. Torah provides for the enjoyment of Wine and other fermented drinks at the Feast of Sukkot. Wine and beer are permitted, for the sake of enjoying the Feast, please use in moderation, within your campsite. The management of Lake Paradise Resort allows drinking, but they expect (and strictly enforce) everyone to keep the camp quiet and orderly, and free of bottles and cans.
Are dogs allowed?
Lake Paradise Resort allows dogs in your campsite, but they do have a leash rule.
Are Breakfast and lunch provided?
The Paradise Grill will be serving breakfast and lunch each day except on the Sabbaths. We don’t have the prices yet, but we have been assured that the meals will be biblically clean and very reasonably priced.
Can I come for only part of the week of Sukkot?
You can attend any part of Sukkot, but keep in mind, the cabin reservations are for the entire sukkot, because of limited cabin space, we cannot reserve for just part of the week, and leave the spot empty the rest of the time. You can however stay short-term in any tent space.
What kinds of food do I bring for the Pitch-In Dinners?
Please bring any main dish (ie; casseroles, meat dishes, chicken, vegetables) but make sure the dish you prepare is Biblically clean food, so don’t bring pork, shellfish, catfish, etc. For YHVH’s definition of what is clean food see Leviticus 11.
Also please bring either a salad, bread, or dessert to share for each Pot Blessing meal, and bring a Dessert for the First night Welcome Rally Dessert Buffet!
How do I pay?
There are 3 separate things to pay:
1. Camping Fees will be charged by Lake Paradise Resort for your camping, you can see the prices on the lodging section of this website.
2. Group Dinners have a cost associated to attend. The prices are on the website during your registration process. After registering please send a check or M.O. to cover the costs for dinners for each member of your family. There is no cost for Pitch in Dinners.
You can make the check or M.O. out to:
10701 Saint Catherines lane
Kansas City, MO 64137
3. Sukkot planning is a labor of love! All upfront costs of putting on Sukkot have been covered with faith in YHVH to provide. Please bring an offering to help with these and continuing costs (ie; building rentals, supplies, printing and advertising, and other costs associated with putting on the Sukkot). In addition please bring an offering for the Lee’s extended ministry efforts!
Do I need to pay for each tent?
Please plan on paying for each tent at your campsite, unless you are putting up a tent for dependent children in your own household. Please be fair to Lake Paradise Resort, by not “doubling up” in campsites in order to pay less. You do not need to pay for shade canopies in your campsite.
How many people can stay in a cabin?
3-4 people can share a cabin, but families with several small children may be able to squeeze more in!
