Adventure Friendship Discovery Fun Camp Lakeside


Overnight Camp at Camp Lakeside runs Sunday through Friday. At Camp Lakeside we teach many skills that help each camper to develop character traits and friendships that last a lifetime. In a supportive community of peers and dedicated leaders, each camper has the opportunity to enjoy new experiences and relish in the classic traditions of summer camp. Campers experience team building through team games, learn about and enjoy outdoor skills, and build character values! At Camp Lakeside we believe that every day is an adventure!
