Lakeshore offers a series of camp programs designed to meet the specific needs of children and youth living on the edges. These programs are NOT designed to be a psycho-analytical counseling experience, but a time of building community and bearing witness to the hope of God’s dependable and unconditional love. These camps are offered without a fee; however, persons or organizations wishing to fund the cost of these camps may do so at a fee of $350 per camper.
Elementary Camp Hope (ages 8-12) July 5-8
This camp session is a Christ-centered, spiritually empowering 5-day/4-night camp experience for children (ages 8-12) with a past or present exposure to alcohol and/or drug abuse. Surrounded with the usual wonders of Lakeshore, this time of recreation, friendship, and Bible-based fun is intended to lead campers to an awareness of love and acceptance we all enjoy in God’s kingdom.
Camp Teen Hope
Teen Hope Camp is the teenage version of Elementary Camp Hope (see description above). Hope campers will enjoy all the adventures Lakeshore has to offer on Kentucky Lake.

For female victims of sexual abuse – anger, loneliness, and confusion are just a few of the things at play in our emotions. We need to be able to trust, experience self-worth, and be a valid part of the community again. As we explore the adventure-based activities that make Lakeshore great fun, we will also look into the gift God has given us in our sexuality, the ugliness that some people place upon it, and the things it takes to become secure in it all
Females July 17-21 ages 12-16
This camp addresses the needs of children and youth in our society who respond to everyday situations and problems with aggressive behavior.
