Long summer days and loud camper cheers. Moments that start with “Hey remember that time when …” It won’t be long before a new group of campers will be experiencing Camp Lakewood for the first time, and our returning campers will be here to add to their list of "remember that time" moments! From 4-day mini-camps for those new to the overnight summer camp experience to our 3-week leadership programs for those considering being a camp counselor, our ACA-accredited, overnight resident camp has something for everyone! In addition to choosing which session to attend, Camp Lakewood campers also choose from a variety of clinics, electives, and smorgasbords to round out the camp experience. New programs for 2019 include: Ozark Adventure Trip: This one week sessions focuses on paddling techniques and "Leave No Trace" ethics and includes a five-day and four-night canoeing trip to explore the beautiful and scenic waters of the Current River. With plenty of excitement and splendor, this trip is a great way to bring out the hidden adventurer in us all. Survival Rangers: Part of our 7-day/6-night Ranger Adventure Program, this experience lets rangers learn the skills of wilderness survival. Participants will learn to find shelter, build fires, cook food and be put to the test with different survivor challenges. After a week in this program, campers will be able to conquer every challenge Mother Nature throws their way. Canoeing: Also part of our 7-day/6-night Ranger Adventure Program, this program teaches different paddling techniques, fire and shelter building, and packing essentials to prepare participants for an amazing three-day and two-night canoeing trip down the Current River. Sessions are filling up fast so don’t wait to book your spot for the ultimate overnight camp experience. We look forward to seeing you!
