Life at its best since 1948
We impact lives
At the heart of our camp ministry is a desire to positively impact the lives of young people for Christ. Every fun activity campers participate in has been carefully designed with this in mind. We’re excited to partner with you in developing spiritually, physically, and socially healthy children for generations to come.
Lake Ann Camp has 70 years of proof that summer camp works!
If the old White Pine trees on our grounds could talk, they’d have stories of joy and transformation to tell. They would tell you that at one time our facilities were tents, our staff full of volunteers. They will share that the idea of over 5,000 annual campers was only a dream. Today, we're blessed to tell you Lake Ann Camp is bigger, better, and truer to its roots than ever before. The last decade has been tough on the camping industry. But God has allowed Lake Ann to expand…both in physical size and camper numbers. Join us this summer as we embrace the next 70 years of camp with purpose.
A Lake Ann Camp experience is only as good as the counselors. But don’t worry, they’re amazing.
We know that every camper is a parent’s most valuable possession. And we recognize it takes a level of maturity to lead those campers through a variety of positive camp experiences. That’s one of the reasons why our rigorous counselor interview process is unmatched. It communicates to prospective counselors the seriousness of their duties. The process ensures they know camp is about the camper, not necessarily for the ease or enjoyment of the staff.
This year’s summer camp team will arrive 15 days before the campers. They will receive 175 hours of classroom and hands-on training. Counselors learn behavior management, facilitation, Lake Ann’s core values and mission, high adventure, philosophy of ministry, outdoor education, and more. Staff finish training having experienced every activity the campers will enjoy and are excited for their first campers to arrive.
