Donate to Camp Lakeside

We value all of our donors- THANK YOU!

Not everyone can physically be at camp volunteering all the time, and that’s okay. We live in a busy world. Fortunately, there are ways to get involved without being at the lake. A lot of time and effort goes on behind the scenes to make our ministry happen; partnerships with Sunday School classes, work days, and fundraisers are just as much of a necessity as volunteers and those that send campers.

Every year, a portion of our church apportionments go to camping and retreat ministry. These apportionments make up roughly 26% of our budget. So, it’s not a big part, but it is an important one. We are so blessed to be a part of a faith community that values our young people! I know that camping ministry has helped me form my relationship with God, discern my calling, and develop as the young woman that God created me to be. So I especially try to remember to give back to the ministry that has shaped me and countless others. If you feel thankful for this vital ministry as well, please join us in prayer, thanks, and giving.
