About Camp Lincoln for Boys and Camp Lake Hubert for Girls

Catering to a diverse group of campers and staff, we are committed to excellence in camping and building up our staff and campers with opportunities for personal growth. Alumni from all across the USA and around the world talk with pride about their wonderful memories and the great times at Camp Lincoln and Camp Lake Hubert.

Why Do We Do It?

It’s simple... for the kids. Our mission is to provide life-changing summers by helping kids grow mentally, physically, spiritually and socially.

  • Who Are The Campers? Our campers and staff come from virtually every state and from around the world, providing a comfortable yet diverse community that’s perfect for lifelong friendships.
  • What is a “Traditional Camp” When we say traditional, we mean that we focus on each camper as a whole, developing character and physical skills through a wide variety of activities - not just one specialty. Our campers know our creeds, codes and values and live by them. 
  • Each camp employs approximately 100 seasonal staff members looking to make a difference in the life of a child, while having an experience like no other... just like you!
  • Each camp offers over 40 different activities giving each camper and staff member a chance to take risks and grow.
