Our Mission

Provide a free Christian camp for kids who otherwise could not experience it (3).jpg

Our Story

Our story began long before anyone on our leadership team worked together. For some of us, it began with our individual, unique camp experiences in childhood. We remembered, with fondness, feeling God’s presence, making new friends, and feeling at peace in our home away from home. For others, it began with the opportunity to see our children thrive in that environment and benefit spiritually from those experiences. When our team first came together we discussed these experiences and arrived at one simple conclusion - EVERY kid should have a chance to experience a Christian summer camp regardless of their life circumstances or socioeconomic background. It was out of this conviction and calling that Camp Lighthouse was birthed. Our first summer in 2011 included 15 campers during one week of summer camp. Today, we host 4 weeks of summer camp each year with 130+ campers each summer in addition to retreats with our Camper Agency Partners and Ministry Partner sponsors.

Year Round Staff

Alan and Carrie White have been part of Camp Lighthouse since our first summer in 2013 and now serve as two of our year round staff. Alan is our Executive Director and Carrie is our Camp Administrator. The two have been married for 18 years after meeting at Lee University and have three school aged boys, Carter, Reed, and Harrison. The couple loves working with our Camper Agency Partners and helping to connect those ministries to our ministry and our wonderful summer staff. Contact Alan and Carrie at the links below to hear more about our ministry at Camp Lighthouse. As a former teaching pastor, Alan would love an opportunity to speak at local churches and to share the story of camp with your congregation.
