The first activity of each full day at camp is Flag Raising. Each morning we meet around the flag pole to raise old glory, say the pledge of allegiance, and pray. It's also a time where some fun morning activities take place like: light saber duels, rock-paper-scissors battles, and the counselor log toss. Each night we take down the stars and stripes, fold her, and store for the next day's adventures.
As part of our teaching ministry, we create a daily devotional guide for each camper. This guide has morning Bible passages, fun activities related to the theme, memory verses for each day, as well as pages for chapel notes. All these features are tied together with our chapels each week to focus our teaching of the Bible to campers.
For over 75 years Lincoln Lake has provided a place for those seeking the Lord to grow in the knowledge of, obedience to and love for Him. We teach the Bible and its truth to each guest at camp. Each week of our summer camp program is carefully tailored to serve Elementary, Middle School or High School students. Lincoln Lake exists as an outreach of the local church, using the unique atmosphere of camping to evangelize and disciple individuals through the Word of God.
With the help of our top-secret weapon (Mrs V.), Lincoln Lake serves some of the finest meals of any summer camp in the country, featuring delicious desserts and a full salad bar at every lunch and dinner. Special dietary considerations should be coordinated with the camp office prior to the week of camp.
Never miss the good stuff! Organized Free Time (OFT) gives campers a chance to experience all the great offerings at Lincoln Lake. Campers go swimming, do archery, play octoball, go on our zipline, and much more! Cabins go together to each activity to enjoy the fun with their friends!
Lincoln Lake has long been home to the craziest and wildest large-group games around! We play hilarious games that are messy, wet, or just plain fun! Campers are split up into teams and enjoy some friendly competition. It all starts with annual Capture the Flag battle each Monday night!
What's camp without the snacks? Lincoln Lake offers snack shack twice each day. Campers enjoy the freedom to purchase candy and pop, souvenir sunglasses or Lincoln Lake T-shirts! Snacks and drinks are typically $1 each. Tip: Don't lose your cash! Check your funds in at the Snack Shack table at registration and we will keep track of it for your loved one.
After a week at Lincoln Lake you may hear about favorites like Skip and Flip, The Ice Box, Italian Night, Glow Ball, or Skit Night. It is our joy and privilege to pass along old and new traditions as we make each year a fresh experience. Thank you for considering Lincoln Lake as you plan for summer!
