Summer Camp Programs

At Lakeside Lutheran Camp, our campers enjoy time in a welcoming community that embraces them for who they are. Campers are given unique opportunities to try new things, challenge themselves, enjoy creation, make friends, and grow in their faith. Every activity at camp is designed and facilitated in a way to help campers have the BEST WEEK EVER! 

We are equipped to handle any type of retreat from one day to week long events for all sizes of groups. Whether you are a men's group, woman's group, religious organization, sports team, class mates, quilters, fishermen, pastors, non profit organization, college group, service group, or a combination.

Located in the heart of Okoboji in Spirit Lake, IA - the Lakeside Event Center sits on a quarter mile of property right on the beautiful, East Okoboji Lake and is surrounded by a lot of mature trees and meadows - a venue unlike any other in the area!
