“Lakeside is a place centered on God where people grow deeper in their faith through the relationships that they form. As a camper, God used the counselors to show me what the fruit of the Spirit looks like in a Christian’s life – they were all so full of love, joy, kindness, faithfulness. As a counselor, God used the campers to gently remind me that Jesus calls us to have the faith of a child.” – Amanda H., Former Camper and Staff (read more)
