For Over 60 years, Camp Lake Stephens summer camp has touched thousands of lives. Over that time, the activities offered have expanded and varied, while the spiritual heart of camp has stayed the same. Our goal during summer is to show all the children and youth that come to Camp Lake Stephens the love that God has for them while teaching the importance of living in community with one another to build up the Body of Christ.
Camp Lake Stephens provides campers an opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities in a caring environment. Campers participate in activities such as swimming, rappelling, canoeing, kayaking, high ropes, disc golf, arts and crafts, ultimate frisbee, high ropes, and wilderness survival. Campers also enjoy hiking, playing in the creek, campfires, outdoor cooking, family group activities, and total group games. Through our reinvigorated summer schedule, campers now get to participate in ALL of the activities provided by CLS (including our ZIP LINE!). Each day, campers will experience God through devotions, praise and worship, and quiet time to give them an opportunity to sense God in some way. All campers will stay in one of our air-conditioned cabins with a highly-trained, certified counselor. Each cabin houses 7 campers and 1 counselor.
In their eighth summer are the Treehouses, rustic cabins by the lake that offer campers an opportunity to rough it during Adventure Camp or Treehouse Camp. Campers participating in Adventure Camp will embark on a journey of epic proportions. Trip activities have included rock climbing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, spelunking (cave hiking), multi-day canoe floats, fly fishing, and backpacking, but new trips will be added as the program expands. Campers participating in Treehouse Camp will enjoy all the traditional camp activities, but reside in the Treehouses instead of a cabin. All camps have an available early bird rate, which offers a lower rate for camps if registered by March 27, 2015.
Be sure to register for ALL of these camps early, because once they fill up we are out of room!
When you register online, make sure to take the opportunity to donate anything you can (every penny helps!) to the pool fund or the parking lot fund.
