Summer Camp at LFYC
Join us at camp and enjoy a summer like no other. On Sundays, Resident Campers (ages 8-16) come to camp for an action packed week full of engaging experiences and challenges. Day Campers (ages 5-14) arrive on Monday morning to participate in the activities and join in the fun. Life For Youth Camp is a non-denominational Christian camp with the purpose of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with each camper that attends. The campers are well supervised and cared for by our dedicated staff and counselors. For summer camp dates view our printable registration form (coming in January).
Ages 5-14 • $120/week

Come and experience camping at its best by choosing a week of Resident Camp for your child. Each week begins on Sunday afternoon and ends Friday evening. Resident Campers will stay in one of eighteen air conditioned modern cabins that house two counselor and twelve campers. Each camper may choose one cabin buddy to be in their cabin (no more than 12 months apart in age). Meals are served in our Dining Hall with a variety of options for even the pickiest of eaters. Campers will be served starting with Sunday supper through Friday supper. Snack Shack tickets may be purchased for $10.00 each on Sunday afternoon during check in.
Each week five, six, and seven year olds are pre-assigned their activities. They will be with the same counselors all day and led to their activities as a group. Campers eight and up will choose an activity track. Activity tracks will include a variety of the activities listed here and the campers will be guided by their Track Leader to all activities. Groups will be as follows: All eight and nine year olds together, all ten and eleven year olds together, all twelve and up together. (Age is as of September 1st). Camper safety is of great importance when planning and implementing all activities.
