Co-ed non-denominational Christian camp for rising 3rd-12th graders (3 grades per week-long sessions), on beautiful Lake Lure in the foothills of the Blueridge Mountains. Camp activities include lakefront related, ropes course, archery, crafts, and other traditional camp sports/games. Summer staff ministry is a focus area with year round contact with our staff. We also offer retreats in August-October for churches, youth groups, college campus groups, and other Christian groups seeking time away in the mountains.
At Camp Lurecrest, we believe in developing intentional relationships and a felt sense of community. This means that all of our summer staff meet one on one with a mentor, all of our campers have a purposeful and affirming conversation with a counselor, and much of our staff training involves practicing individual Gospel centered conversations. Additionally, our culture is outdoor and technology free with day-off expectations like letting everyone know your plans and offering rides to people who want to join. We choose this approach because we worship a Holy and yet relational God and we want to become a community that is reflects His character.
