Information for Campers
Camp gives you the opportunity to do things you never dreamed of, go places you never expected, and make friends along the way. It gives you the chance to make goals and see them through, challenge yourself physically and mentally, and grow as a person. Where else could you climb a 40' rock tower, zipline to the bottom, spend an hour tie-dying, hop on a sailboat and sail the lake, canoe to the other side and camp out, then come back and enjoy worships, Bible studies, crafts, games, archery, theme events, learning new skills, and more while making new friends and having a load of fun all in one day?! ONLY AT LAKESIDE!
