About Lakeside Camp

Lakeside Camp is a traditional summer camp built along the shores of Pine Lake.

Each of the four seasons has its own distinct characteristics. Although summers are generally hot and humid, it is normal to experience rain showers, thunderstorms and cool nights. Summer temperatures average 85 F but can get down to 55 F, so keep that in mind while packing!
