Lake View holds camps for all ages! Check out all the opportunities listed below. To determine which camp you or your child should attend, go by the grade they will be entering into the following fall. The first trip to camp can be a bit scary for some children which is why Lake View offers a number of shorter camps to get the child ready for a full week of camp as well as a day camp and grandparent/grandchild camp. Campers can attend more than one camp each summer!
