At Camp Lakewood, kids love the extensive list of activities we offer, which create opportunities to challenge, inspire, create and enjoy. From Arts & Crafts to horseback riding, zip lines to swimming, Camp Lakewood’s activities are second to none and everything campers love.

“The experience is terrific for kids because it removes them from the many distractions they have while at home (TV, video games, cell phones, etc.) and allows them to experience new things through outdoor “play”. It requires them meeting new people and learning how to quickly adapt to experiences that might be uncomfortable in the beginning. I think the entire experience is beneficial and one that every kid should experience.”
– Kim & Tony

Campers choose four learning activities called “clinics” during a one-week stay. Each clinic runs for about an hour, five days a week. Some activities count as two clinics. Through these activities, we coach sportsmanship, courage, healthy risk-taking, independence, goal setting, flexibility, responsibility, and self-discovery.
