What to expect
LifeCampUSA is a one week experience in the wilderness. Young men will learn characteristics of leadership, humility, perseverance, integrity, and more. The 1:1 mentor to camper ratio enables a unique opportunity for campers to create a lasting relationship with mentors. There’s lots of learning, and even more fun. We enjoy the great outdoors through fishing wild trout, hiking mountains, throwing knives, shooting bow and arrow, and much more.

This week was the absolute time of my life! The mentors (or “uncles” as we called them) really made us dig deeper into having Jesus Christ in our lives as boys growing into men. While my father was serving in Afghanistan he was KIA. These men at this camp acted as uncles in my life, and reminded me that God is our Father, and the most important person, who takes us under his wing.
Camp was also incredible because me and the other boys built a family relationship because of what we have all been through in life. Me and my new friends went on so many adventures together, such as fishing, seeing the great Lake Superior, spending time in the lake, and all-around camp fun! Kids my age will continue to come to this amazing camp because of the men who run it. They are people who actually care. If you are considering coming but are scared, unsure, or too busy, don’t let that stop you. I was all of these things at first, but I remembered, what is there to lose, and what if you don’t get another chance? I traveled 1,500 miles, farther than I’d ever been from home or my mom, and I will say this: “COME HERE!” I will never forget this camp or anyone in it. The people will forever be part of my life. At this camp my understanding of life and God grew. If you have the opportunity, come and enjoy this incredible camp!!

Apply to be a mentor
LifeCampUSA aims to provide middle school boys with direction on how to live out Christian masculinity in our contemporary world. Our mentors exemplify this in both their spiritual and worldly maturity through their high emotional intelligence and wisdom in dealing with our modern challenges. Each mentor should be an example of the character we are instilling into our campers with a selfless commitment to bettering the world around them through service towards others.
