Meet the 2014 Summer Ministry Team

Each summer Lakeside hires extraordinary young adults to serve as camp counselors and strong Christian role models. These individuals are deeply committed to youth ministry and discipleship.  A key part of this commitment is their efforts to raise funds to help children in difficult circumstances attend Lakeside.  These gifts come from families, friends, and people like you. Your gift will help each summer counselor reach their personal goal of enabling two children to attend camp. If you would like to help our 2014 staff meet their goals, please click on the donate button for the staff member whose efforts you would like to help.
