Our four day camp programs are for children ages 6-16, and provide a wide variety of outdoor activities. 


Session 5 

Days are filled with games, pony rides, arts and crafts, nature, swimming and more. It is a closely supervised four-day introduction to camping with lots of individual attention for first-time campers. Cabin groups experience some of camp’s traditional activities together, but kids also have the opportunity to choose a few activities on their own. We maintain a ratio of at least one counselor per four campers.  Understanding this is possibly a child’s first time away from home, our caring staff keeps the new camper safe and happy. Accommodations are climate-controlled cabins with indoor plumbing.

Session 5

Mini Raptors Camp is a fun, exciting and safe way to introduce your camper to a residential camp experience. Swimming, archery, arts & crafts and campfires are just a few of the activities your camper will enjoy. Mini Raptors Camp is designed for the 9-10 year old first time camper to try Camp Lakewood for just four days. All campers are the same age, so every activity is geared for them. Accommodations are climate-controlled cabins with indoor plumbing.

Session 5 

Has your camper ever wondered what’s on the other side of the lake or heard legend of the 97 stairs? Well now they can find those answers out for themselves as they enjoy a four-day taste of East Camp and all the excitement across the lake. Your camper will stay in the original camp cabins located on East Camp Hill, complete with bath house, pavilion and the throwback (non-temperature controlled) camping we all loved as kids ourselves. This is a great introduction to East Camp for pre-teen campers.

Session 5 and 10

Come to the Triangle Y Ranch for four days of intense equestrian training! Ranch campers will form their own special cabin group and spend all day, everyday at the ranch working with our highly experienced staff. Participants will advance riding skills while learning advanced horse care, history and ranch management. 

Session 10

Want some more camp before school starts? We've created an ultimate mini session to squeeze in the last camp activities you love such as archery, nature center, the water park, and much more. Campers will still gather as a cabin with their age group to play, learn and make the best camp friends. Ages 8-12 will be at Main Camp and ages 13-16 will be at East Camp. So join us for one more game of Gaga, one more friendship bracelet or one more climb up Jungle Joe.
