At Camp Lakota, we foster the values of sharing, integrity, responsibility, and respect in a friendly, safe, and fun environment.
Campers learn to value others by being valued themselves. They leave camp with memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. Camp Lakota has provided these experiences for more than eight decades, and we firmly believe that this is what camp is meant.
Michael Childs, Director, was a long time camper, counselor, group leader, and served as Lakota’s Boys’ Head Counselor for two years in the 90’s.
“My first year was 1979, I was 8 years old and off I went to Lakota. Lakota has been in my blood ever since. After spending 20 plus years at Lakota, I went into the corporate world, still knowing Lakota and camping was always my number one passion.”
Michael is a graduate of the University of Arizona and currently lives in Boca Raton, Florida with his wife Vickie and 4 children, Adam, Carlie, Katie and Kevin, all of whom spend their summers at Lakota.
Michael introduced Camp Lakota to his family in 2009. “The kids are great campers and have great passion for camp.”
Michael’s knowledge, enthusiasm and love for camp will become part of every campers experience at Lakota.
