Who are our campers?

3 They range in age from eight to fourteen. Here at Camp Lakeshore, we are proud to say our campers have come to us from every state in the country. Our typical camper is fair-minded, friendly and fun-loving. He or she emphasizes the positive and allows their curiosity to become a passport to new worlds of interests. Our campers aim for excellence, risk failure, and revel in the talents of their peers.

Who are we?

4 Our campers call us Uncle Joe and Aunt Mary. We founded Camp Lakeshore forty years ago and have never regretted starting or owning this facility. We understand our task is to provide an exciting and enriching experience for our campers while working in a way which ensures parents their campers are safe and secure at Camp Lakeshore.

5 The only thing we enjoy crowing about more than our delightful campers is our stellar staff. They are the shining stars that light the way for our campers. Each staff member undergoes extensive training and receives all necessary certifications. Many of our counselors were once campers themselves. This enables them to have real empathy towards the rare upset camper, having had the same feelings themselves.
