Lake Valley Camp
Summer fun. Opportunities for life.
Imagine the moments that can change a child during the course of a single summer at camp. The lasting benefits of sunshine and swimming. Nature walks and campfires. Caring adults and new friends. Challenges and outdoor adventures that inspire lifelong learning and leadership.
Now imagine the difference it would make over a lifetime, if that child returned summer after summer. Picture a camp where counselors nurture each child, reach out to every parent and offer the promise of continued guidance and support through high school graduation.
Lake Valley Camp?s structured day and resident programs help promising youth to reach their potential and make positive life choices. Students may attend for up to 10 summers; older participants are eventually trained to work as counselors themselves.
