Camp: Lakeside Institute

The Best Week of Summer!

Lakeside Institute will be July 23-29, 2023!

Join us for a week in the summer of growing our faith and building new relationships, up at Lakeside on Lake Erie!

All youth from finishing up 8th grade through age 20 are invited to attend.

We spend a week up on Lake Erie with youth from other churches. HUMC has four adults on staff for the week.

Lakeside Institute is really unlike other summer camps. The focus of the entire week is on relationships — with yourself, with others, and most importantly, your personal relationship with Jesus. We are in a gated community that often feels like stepping back into the “old” days, with small children walking the streets eating ice cream cones they just bought at the corner ice cream shop, sitting on the dock hanging out with new friends, playing shuffleboard during free time… just enjoying a slower pace of life. Yes, you can and will have your technology, but it’s amazing how quickly in the week you will choose to separate from it.

Parents are encouraged to show up in time for closing circle on the last day of camp, to get a small glimpse of the experience your youth has had.

We will have at least two fundraisers to offset the cost of camp, and scholarships are available as well. To apply for a scholarship, however, the youth (or someone on their behalf) must participate in the fundraisers.


We encourage you to register soon – only the registration fee is due when you register. You can make payments for the balance of camp fees up until the first day of camp. Early Bird Registration closes March 15.
