Who We Are
Camp Lu Lay Lea is a Christian summer camp now entering its 72nd summer of operation. We are open to all boys and girls ages 8-14. Lu Lay Lea is located on picturesque Henderson Lake in one of the state’s loveliest regions, with abundant trees and foliage providing a gorgeous backdrop for camp activity. We offer seven one-week sessions, each accommodating up to 86 campers per week (Sunday through Saturday). Camp Lu Lay Lea is licensed by the State of Michigan, and is regularly inspected by county and state authorities. The camp is also owned and operated by the Saginaw Valley Zone Lutheran Laymen’s League and was established in 1948.
Young people need positive, constructive, interesting and challenging things to do with their time. Camp Lu Lay Lea structures its schedule to provide these opportunities along with plenty of fun. Campers play, learn, develop their creativity, strengthen their faith in a Christian environment, create new frienships, and grow, all while being surrounded by the charming elegance of Northern Michigan. We strive to give campers an unforgetable summer experience, along with growing their relationship with Jesus Christ.
The staff of Camp Lu Lay Lea is comprised of a group of imaginative, responsible, and resourceful people, chosen for both their sense of maturity as well as their commitment to children. Many staff members offer years of summer camp experience, having once been campers at Lu Lay Lea themselves. All staff receive extensive training, including Red Cross certification. Waterfront and Health Center personnel complete additional intensive course work as well. This is all to ensure that your child's safety is always the number one priority.
