Friendships, Fun, and Faith converge each summer at Lakeside Christian Camp. Dedicated to equipping and encouraging children and adults in Christian faith. Lakeside Christian Camp offers programs of inspiration, set on a pristine lake, among glorious mountain views, wooded walking trails, and spacious meadows and fields.
Through powerful worship, small group devotions, and hands on activities, campers will explore actions and teachings of Jesus Christ that challenged cultural and social norms to turn our world upside down.
Have tremendous fun, form life-long friendships, and explore new interests, all while being encouraged in Christian character growth. Each daily activity is carefully designed to include a balance of structured activities and the freedom to explore, play, and grow. A typical day includes energetic worship, thoughtful Bible study, a range of skill classes, a variety of waterfront activities, and exciting age specific games and tournaments.
Join with others, twice daily, for a time of encouraging and uplifting worship, led by dynamic youth pastors and Lakeside’s own worship band. God’s word is shared in a way that is true to scripture and relevant to today’s youth. Each lesson includes practical applications for home, school, and among peers. Also, twice daily, campers meet within their cabins in a small group environment to dig deeper into the lessons presented in chapel. Christian faith is fostered, but never forced. (Learn More)

Campers enjoy personalized attention from staff thanks to a favorable ratio of campers to counselors. Our staff is committed to modeling Christian values and behaviors. Trained counselors are typically college students, representing schools such as Gordon College, Liberty University, Eastern College, Nyack College, Messiah College, Eastern Nazarene College, and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
Two and three week sessions provide campers more fun, more opportunities for spiritual growth, and more time to develop meaningful friendships. Max campers enjoy the added benefit of exceptional weekend events and field trips.
