Example Interest Group Topics

Our 2023 interest group list is still being decided. But, here are examples of the interest groups that we have had in the past.

Sign up begins in May 2023

How it works: Senior High campers will have a Bible Centered (discussion) interest group at lunch time and an active interest group at dinner time. Look through the list and start ranking your top 5 Bible Centered and Active Interest Groups!

You must be registered for camp to register for interest groups! Junior High campers do not need to register for interest groups. There are set groups that you will rotate through.

Bible Centered (Lunch time) Interest Groups

What's My Spiritual Gift


Who is the Holy Spirit? How do I hear the Holy Spirit? What are spiritual gifts? How do I know my spiritual gifts?

Let's talk about these questions and figure it out together.

PRayer walk


What is a prayer walk? Come find the answer and help create a Lakeside prayer walk.

HEROES & VILLaiNS and Scripture


The Bible is packed with stories of courageous people who loved and served God, and how He used them to do great things in the world. It is also filled with villainous people who disobeyed God and did horrible things. This group will discuss a little of both!

Find your people


In a world that's both more connected and more isolating than ever before, we’re often tempted to do life alone, whether because we’re so busy or because relationships feel risky and hard.

You were built by God for deep relationship. In this group we will go through topics from the book "Find Your People" and how it relates to us.

Action of Athletes


Who you are on the field or court can define who you are off the field. Let's talk about how we can play hard and honor our faith.

Let's Get Chiseled


Taking a look at our life to become the unique masterpiece He created in each of us.

DO what you are: God made you for a purpose


In our group we will complete career assessments. We will discuss the ways God gifts His children to serve in His Kingdom on Earth.



How just one change can make all of life better.

It turns out giving up your “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things you can do.



Fear can keep us from being all that God has called us to be.

We will look at several powerful moments in the Bible where fearlessness is modeled. We will see what scripture has to say about being bold in the face of whatever the world throws our way, and empowering us to do just that.



This group learns new songs, black spirituals, and lakeside classics. Take part in the walking choir and sing for your camp peers during praise and worship.

If you select Choir as your lunchtime interest group, your Bible Centered" interest groups will be at dinner time.

Worship Band


We are looking for band members that want to worship, learn, and just have a good time worshipping God. In each session, we will do a quick devotional, pray and then make some music together. 

If you play keys, guitar, bass, drums sing, or you have another talent you would like us to consider, send a quick video of you using your talent to gwayne.wells@gmail.com or text to (937)684-6684
