Summer Programs

In every camp program we strive to  meet the following outcomes:

  • To provide a time and place for encountering God, self, others, and nature.

  • To positively affect campers' faith at LCLC and at home.

  • To provide an environment where campers are safe and happy and have fun.

  • To positively affect and build campers' life skills including: independence, inter-personal skills, self-esteem, problem solving skills, and stick-to-itiveness.
