This summer may be cancelled but we will continue to live out our mission and be a place of belonging for all people. Once social distancing is lifted youth, adults, families, and congregations are going to need camp more than ever.  With your support we will be ready to help the healing begin from this traumatic experience.
Please consider supporting Lakeside in whatever capacity you can. You can make sure everyone who experienced loss, economic hardship, fear, trauma, or pain have a place to go and start healing. You can send a gift through the mail or online from our website. There are many other ways to support Lakeside listed here:
AmazonSmile is Amazon shopping with a percentage of the profits going towards your choice of non-profit - go to; select Lutheran Lakeside, and then Amazon will send us donations from your purchases.
Thrivent Choice Dollars- Thrivent members get Choice Dollars that they can designate to a non-profit of their choice. We make good use of these dollars when we receive them by helping support the program or property. Please log in to your Thrivent account and designate your dollars today.
Thrivent Action Team Cards-Every Thrivent member can get 2 action cards a year that are worth $250 each.  These cards can be used for collecting items to donate to camp, fundraisers to help off set the cost for campers, service days at camp, and even to support a day of camp. If you would like to use your Thrivent Action Card for Lakeside, our office can help you with the process. Just give us a call. For more information, visit
We are hopeful to find Thrivent members who will help add swings to our play area, gravel to our roads, and sand to our waterfront next year.
In Kind Gifts - We always need items at camp to help make the weeks run smoother. These items include things like flashlights, first aid kits, bug spray, sun screen, life jackets, swimming goggles, sports balls, tools, and work gloves. We are also searching for a used truck to use around camp, and a used van to help our traveling day camp staff get around. Check out our wish list to see more items or see our list on Amazon.  
Automated Monthly Gifts-We are hopeful to add more monthly givers. These gifts give us consistent and reliable funds that help make our mission possible. The day-to-day operations of camp are sometimes the hardest to find funding for, but the most crucial to what we do. Automated monthly gifts come out of your account quickly and easy. Please consider giving with auto withdraw to help support our important day to day operations. YES, I want to give monthly!
