Located in Lincolnton, Ga, we provide a variety of enriching outdoor recreation programs just a short drive away from the heart of Augusta, Aiken and surrounding communities. Camp Lakeside includes activities like swimming, hiking, fishing, archery, basketball, canoeing, kayaking, arts and crafts, disc golf and more!

Life-Changing Outdoor Programs

At the expanded, renovated Camp Lakeside, more Y campers than ever before will experience an array of enriching outdoor-recreation programs: swimming, hiking, fishing, archery, basketball, canoeing, kayaking, arts and crafts, disc golf, and many more. The camp will be an extension of the Family Y’s adapted programs, further solidifying its role as a nationwide  model in providing programs and facilities that are accessible to people with disabilities or chronic health conditions.

S.T.E.A.M Education

STEAM education encourages children to be curious and experiment – making them lifelong learners. Inquiry-based STEAM learning focuses on hands-on experiences and creative ways to solve problems. Inquiry is a learning approach and active process of exploring the world, and that leads to asking questions, making discoveries, and testing those discoveries in the search for new understanding.

Day & Overnight Camp

Camp programs offer a wide variety of outdoor adventures led by trained and experienced leaders who guide children and teenagers in having an unforgettable experience. Expect new and fun activities that will add not only build skills but great new friends and character values for life.
