April Benevolence: Camp Lebanon

Camp Lebanon has been a favorite site for campers since 1949. From June to September Camp Lebanon offers over night camp for children from 1st through 12th grade.  Counselors from across the nation and from many foreign countries come to Camp Lebanon for many reasons, but primarily they find it to be a place to become closer to God and to share His love with the campers. Children enjoy the love, warmth, laughter, tears, friendships, fun, and memories which remain throughout the years.
