Lakeside exists to Equip Youth and Families for Christian Life. The Lakeside Camper Assistance Fund helps ensure that all children have the opportunity to attend Christian summer camp by sharing with families the cost of tuition.
Through the generous support of churches and individuals, tuition assistance is available for children from families experiencing significant financial hardship. The total amount of assistance each year is based upon the total amount of donations received for the year. This needs-based assistance is awarded in the order in which fully completed applications are received, for as long as funds are available.
Generally speaking, assistance is provided in the form of a scholarship for a portion of the tuition, with the balanced paid by families through weekly or monthly automatic payments, for up to six months.
