Ready for The Ultimate Family Vacation?
We’re all about Family Camp: activities designed for the whole family, age-specific teaching during each session, family assistants, a night set aside for parents and adults to spend time together, and much more. Family Camp is packed with fun from land to water.
Life Action Camp is situated on 175 acres of forest, meadows, and sandy beaches for you to explore. Some of the highlights are our large water toys, including the Rocket, the Jungle Joe, and the Blob. We also have plenty of other activities off the water to ensure that everyone has their fill of fun.

In the summer, the weather is usually warm (upper 70s and 80s) during the day, but sometimes cool (50s) in the mornings and evenings, so you’ll want to bring a light jacket or sweatshirt. You may want to bring some old sneakers and clothing for certain activities or for a rainy day. Be sure to prepare for insects by bringing insect repellent, avoiding perfumes, and avoiding light-colored clothing in the evenings.
For your convenience, we have coin-operated laundry facilities on the property.
As for a Dress Code … we desire to provide an atmosphere of modesty and decency that is in line with biblical principles, but we also recognize it is the husband/father’s responsibility to determine his family’s dress standards. While we rejoice in the freedom we have in Christ, we ask that discretion and deference be the ruling factors in your choice of clothing worn at camp.
Every afternoon is open for family recreation. Many people choose to spend this time around the waterfront. We have a sandy beach, BLOB, three other Aquaglide inflatables, and a ski boat. Every family gets a free half hour for our driver to take you tubing on the lake. If there are extra slots open, you can sign up for another half hour for $30.

A final confirmation deposit is required in March of $300 ($500 for flat rate units).

Please note: All deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Happy Heart City (ages 4 through 1st grade) and Base Camp (2nd through 5th grades) attend the first part of the service with you. It is important for them to see the honor that Dad and Mom give to God, and it’s good for them to enter into worship with you. Before the main teaching begins, they will be dismissed to their clubs, where our children’s ministers will use their gifts to engage your children with age-appropriate skits, games, and Bible lessons.
The Youth (6th through 12th grades) are usually dismissed at this same time for teaching that addresses their needs and shows them answers contained in Scripture. Sometimes they are invited to remain in the adult sessions, depending on the material being covered.
During Breakaway (formerly Date Night), all the children come to the Tabernacle for a picnic while the parents have a quiet meal at the Lodge. After the children eat, they may go on a hayride, make a craft, or go on a hike. Then they have a session in their clubs. The youth leaders usually have some outrageous activities planned for this occasion. All of this activity gives the parents a few hours to enjoy each other’s company without worrying about the children.
The only things with extra cost are optional.
* As previously mentioned, there is a snack shop, coin laundry, and extra sessions on the ski boat.
* There is a new line of Life Action Camp apparel each year.
* Most of the local attractions have entry fees.
