I recently went to Lake Ann Camp, and I have got to say that it was the best week of my life, so far. You will not regret going, or sending your kids there. If you go it will change your heart, soul, and my mind about our Lord, Jesus Christ. At Lake Ann everything has a purpose, and that is to teach you about God, and to just learn about life. All the activities are such a blast!!!!!! You have so much fun and you learn so much. You make friends you will love for a lifetime, and no one goes hungry at Lake Ann!!!!(: Why wouldn't you want to go? You get a chance to get off the couch make new friends, and to be able to love God with your whole heart, and what could possibly be better then that???? I LOVE LAKE ANN!!!

Ive been going to Lake Ann to the Mens retreat since 1986. Ive missed the last couple of years due to health reasons. Ken Riley is the Executive Director of Lake Ann Camp and has been there now going on 25 years and in that time Lake Ann has been tremendously blessed by GOD by sending Ken Riley to Lake Ann Camp some 25 years ago. My Son has been to the Jr. camp which is a week and had a great time.Myself and my wife have gone to the Couples retreat and have heard Ken Rudolph speak who is and continues to be an inspiration to us to Live for Christ. Lake Ann is a blessing given by GOD.

Well to start of both my son and nephew went to Lake Ann Camp this year and I had a hard time getting them to leave on Saturday morning!! Our family has been involved with Lake Ann for several years and we have been able to see great tings happen in each of our kids lives ! Lake ann is on the constant change each year adding bigger and better things to their line up! This year our kids could not stop talking about the dunes trip and there speaker ..I think his name was E.j. Swanson. They ranted and raved about the games and music !Overall my son and nephew will be back next year and moving into the fresh start program, I dare not not send my son there and have him miss camp! I think there would be a revolt in our house. Thanks Lake ANN!

My sister, brother, and I have grown up going to Lake Ann Camp. Everytime I went I learn more and more about God. Lake Ann is like a dream camp. It has beautiful landscaping and wonderful people to be around. I have worked at Lake Ann Camp for three years. I can tell you that everything Lake Ann is about is Christ centered. Last summer I went to Reborne Rangers, a spiritual leadership camp Lake Ann affors. That week was AAAmazing!! Lake Ann Camp is quite pricey but well worth every pennie!!

I've been visiting the grounds of Lake Ann for years, and have been bringing my kids for the last few years. This group has a long heritage of responsibility and commitment. I appreciate the fact that the staff works according to a plan, and what they do, they do on purpose. One of my favorite things is watching the faces of Jr. campers when they tell about their great week at Lake Ann!

I was introduced to Lake Ann Camp in the early 1990's when I met the director of the Camp. He invited me to come to the camp to check it out and see for myself what God is doing in the lives of students through their summer camp program. I was amazed at the impact the camp had! Teens were leaving from a week of camp excited about their relationship with Christ - I did too. In fact; the camp is so successful at what they do that the decisions the campers make don't just last for a week, but for a lifetime. And that's what Jesus does; he changes your life for life.

Pros: Great facilities, food and activities.

Cons: A bit out of the way, but it is camp, camp shouldn??t be just around the corner.

Since the mid 80's when I was a camper, Lake Ann provided great memories and has had lasting change in my life. I've volunteered there and was on staff as a counselor and now speak during the summer. Lake Ann is different than other camps I've been to. By different I mean BETTER! I see four things that make Lake Ann the best camp I've ever gone to: First, their philosophy and program "...challenging individuals in a group setting to make biblical life-changing decisions" It's not only about fun and games, but about life-change. Second, their counseling staff. Qualified college students who take interest in your child's life 24/7. Together camper and counselor evaluate what his or her next step toward spiritual growth might be. Third, their facility. BEAUTIFUL! this is not your "leaky roof, uncomfortable bed, suck-it-up cause it's camp" camp. Great cabins, spacious meeting areas, and gorgeous landscape. Fourth, but not last, the food. Delicious. I've never seen teenagers eat so many vegetables.You have to experience this camp for yourself.

Lake Ann Camp has had an amazing impact in my life. I worked there the summer after my senior year in high school and it was the best thing I could have done. God worked in my life through the other high school staff and the full time staff who were in charge of me to change my attitude and give me a great perspective as I headed off to college. Watching kids learn the truth of God's love for them was the highlight of my summer there and I hope to be able to return as a counselor.

My children have gone to Lake Ann Camp for many years as campers and, now that they are teens, to work there each summer. The experiences they have each summer, living in a Christ honoring atmosphere, have helped them grow into young adults with Christ as the center of their lives. The camp is set on many wooded acres on a small lake. The facilities have grown over the years to be, what I would consider, a premium camp with almost everything a teen or pre-teen could want. The highly trained staff strives to make the experience for the kids a life changing event through fun, food, and Christ. God has truly blessed this camp and if you want your kids to grow in the Christian life, sending them here to Lake Ann is a good step in the process.

I went looking for that one place where a life can be intentionally and positively impacted for Christ, and I had to look no further. I have witnessed time and again many people coming back from this place much different than when they left.Lake Ann is a great innovator in camping circles.They have a compelling mission and vision, and they consistently deliver the high quality product they promise. And it's done in a safe and naturally pristine environment.

I was attracted to Lake Ann Camp not because of their 5 star facilities and grounds, but because they are involved in intentional programming. They have a very clear purpose, doctrine and values and they hold everything they do accountable to these documents. The result is, they continually add and change programs to result in changed lives. Because of that I really believe that they will reach their vision of 25,000 campers by the middle of the next decade. Those of us who remember their past with gratitude, embrace their future with excitement. To God be the Glory.

I first learned about Lake Ann Camp in 1978 when I lived in Iowa. Wow, this place was used by God to give me a sense of purpose about who I am and how I can make a difference in other peoples lives. I heard someone say - Lake Ann Camp is Almost Heaven. In reflecting on that I asked myself; what is heaven. Sure it is a place but the emphasis of the Bible is not the location, the emphasis is that it is a place where there is the absense of sin and the presence of Christ. I know that no place on earth has the absense of sin but Lake Ann Camp is the closest place to that I know and you even get the impression that the presence of Christ is there when you first drive through the parkway entrance. I love this place and how it changed my life.

While the camp is well organized with activities and set in a great location, any parent contemplating having their children attend this camp should review Lake Ann's agenda and curriculum very closely before deciding.

If your child is not of the Baptist faith, you need to understand the Camp's intent and teachings including the potential of contradicting your faith or at least confusing younger children (especially, juniors or jump start ages). Our experience was not a good one where a counsellor assigned to our child's group tried to manipulate our child thru fear to think differently from the religion she follows. While I am all for spirited teachings to support a child to be a better person, pushing a very bias agenda that disrespects other religions steps way over the line.

A weeklong Christian camp located in northern Michigan, Lake Ann is an unforgettable experience for anyone. For children (4th grade-12th) the counseling staff are all from Christian colleges and have about 10 campers each. The food is fantastic and you will only receive letters about the songs they sang when they ate, the million games they played, the tree-top challenge course, the crafts, the lake and of course, the Al Capone legend (the land used to be his private golf course years ago). The camp continues to grow in size and activities each year gathering well-known speakers and helping your children learn about God while having fun. It is a life changing experience by the week end and many share their personal testimonies over a bonfire the last night they are there.

PROS: Well-Known Camp Attracting campers from all over the world
