CAMP FACILITIES: Here is how previous campers have described our property: "Beautiful buildings," "Comfortable cabins," "Clean bathrooms," "Great food," "Awesome lake front activities and swimming." We work hard to maintain great looking, quality buildings that are clean, comfortable and functional for overnight camping. We don't want our message to be distracted by our structures. Our lake is a great place for swimming and has numerous activities to keep campers engaged and relaxed. Outdoor basketball courts, open fields, disc golf and dozens of other on site activities help make Lake Ann Camp a place for great activities and making awesome summer camp memories!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Lake Ann Camp focuses on helping campers by utilizing a facilitator-led model. In other words, our counselors and program staff receive over 100 hours of training in order to help campers unpack God's truth on their own. To do this, we use every part of our program, from free time to chapel, from meals to high ropes course, in order to engage campers every day. Our camp was established in 1948, and our full time staff has years of camping experience. Since 1948, we have grown in both size of property, and number of campers we see each year, and we continually seek to create life-changing experiences for every individual and group. You can view staff profiles and history about Lake Ann on our web site.

We are certified with the ACA (American Camping Association), a process that demands excellence and care in all that we do. You can be confident we do our best in keeping your campers safe in every activity we present. We are also members of the CCCA (Christ Camping and Conference Association. Our camp happily complies with the ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) in order to demonstrate financially responsible bookkeeping. Lake Ann Camp is rated as a "Best Christian Workplace", a certification that examines and rates each facet of employment here at the camp. Lake Ann Camp is well known for its use of low and high ropes initiatives for both Sr and Jr High campers.

We also have special programs geared toward students in transition. For example, as part of our regular summer programming we have camps geared specifically for 6th and 9th grade students. 6th grade students, preparing for the transition into middle school, enjoy an amazing week soaking in God's creation through a tailor made program focusing on God's power. They stay in cool tree forts, enjoy a creation walk in a nearby stream, tube rides down the river, hikes up (and down!) the sand dunes as well as an unforgettable experience on our camp bog. 9th graders, gearing up for entering high school, start on camp property Monday and Tuesday, but Tuesday afternoon take off for a 3-day river rafting trip. While camping on the banks of the river and learning how to cook and prepare food as a team, campers learn confidence in God and His provisions, as well as crucial team-working skills.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Participants who have graduated at least one year prior to the start of camping season, are eligible to apply to work on staff as a counselor or program director. Both of these positions are paid and come with excellent training (over 100 hours!) before campers arrive on site. Many of our former staff continue to use their Lake Ann Camp training in their vocations, both full-time ministry and in the work force.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Scholarships are available on a camper by camper basis. Please contact the camp with a request, and we will discuss your needs discretely and professionally with an aim to assist.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: While we are most known for our summer programming, Lake Ann Camp offers year-around camping opportunities. Our snowy winters make for great group retreats and winter camps, and we host not only youth camps, but couples, pastors and men's and women's retreats throughout the year.
