Welcome to Camp Lael

Lapeer, Michigan

Each summer Camp Lael needs both paid staff and volunteer counselors to help with our programs. Volunteers will stay for one week at a time. We must have an application and reference forms, even if you are a volunteer. Check out the summer schedule for the camping weeks. Please consider helping Camp Lael in this very important way!

The application deadline for summer camp employment is May 1st.

Camp Lael facing challenges

In these challenging times, a global pandemic means that these past couple of summers have looked a little different than it has in previous years. We need your help to guarantee that current and future generations of campers have access to the same experiences that have become essential parts of your story.
