New Foundations

New Foundations for Another 60 Years

Did you know that Camp Lake Stephens has been providing kids with camping fun and Christian fellowship since 1946? That’s 60 years! And in 2006, we’ll be celebrating our 60 th anniversary with special activities where you can be a participant!

One of the key projects for the year is a fundraising project that will enable us to renovate and reconstruct some of the buildings and recreational facilities on our grounds. Sixty years of ongoing use have taken their toll at CLS, and we’re excited about the prospect of a brand ‘new’ camp!

New Chapel
New Dining Hall
New Swimming Pool/Water Park
Improvements to Lake
New Adventure Camp
New Entrance and Parking Lot

We are committed to Keeping the Vision Alive of CLS founder Dr. J. E. Stephens and all those who followed in his footsteps. We firmly believe that the badly-needed repairs and new construction will help us lay New Foundations for Another 60 Years of quality Christian camping in Northern Mississippi.


Since you’re surfing our site, you’re likely a camping enthusiast. Possibly you’ve spent a memorable week here at the camp, or perhaps you were a counselor at CLS. Or maybe you’re an interested adult who wants to bring your Bible Study group here for a weekend retreat!

Whatever the reason, we hope you’ll consider giving to our fundraising campaign. We want to continue the rich tradition of unforgettable camping experiences that have been the hallmark of Camp Lake Stephens for 60 years

Your tax-deductible contribution in any amount will be deeply appreciated, and if you’d pass our need along to fellow CLS campers, we’d appreciate that too! Please send your gifts to:
