Get Involved


Camp Lakeside depends on the generosity of our volunteers and donors. There are many ways you can be involved with Camp Lakeside and be part of something special. For information on how you can help, contact Charlie Prescott, Camp Lakeside District Executive, at (706) 359-2152 or email [email protected].


Volunteering offers you a unique opportunity to be a part of something special at Camp Lakeside. We provide many volunteer positions so you can gain experience working with kids while giving back to Camp Lakeside. Previous volunteers have come from different educational backgrounds, including medical school, occupational therapy, physical therapy, kinesiology, special education and exercise science. We’ve had students volunteer from area high schools, as well as Colleges and Universities such as Clemson University, University of Georgia, Furman University, Georgia Southern University, Augusta Technical College and Augusta University.

We are pleased to offer discounts and scholarships to campers from the families of our Camp Nurses and other select positions. If you would like to volunteer with us, please contact Charlie Prescott, District Executive, at [email protected]

Healing Through Joy

Through a partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Georgia, Camp Lakeside is being developed as an adaptive camp location to offer specialized camp programs for children across Georgia facing significant health challenges such as cancer, heart conditions, diabetes and joint disorders. Healing Through Joy is the campaign to raise the funds necessary to make improvements to our grounds and modify camp programs to ensure these children have access to traditional camp activities.
