Camp Li-Lo-Li Pre-Teen 1 underway!

Happy, smiling faces arrived at camp this past Sunday for the start of Pre-Teen 1. Many were returning campers but a large number were here for the very first time. Our Camp Director, Arthur Manning got straight into the program and introduced our theme for the week, The Promises of God to Noah!

What a great week to talk about Noah! - It has already rained every day this week! Our speaker Bobby Halek has been focusing on the messages that God brought Noah






The kids have kept busy, rain or shine! The store has been a popular destination, especially with the addition of root beer floats!





Tonight was our traditional Wednesday picnic and the kids all hiked up to Fort Seneca to enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers, baked beans, chips and watermelon!




The hike up was especially muddy, but no-one seemed to mind! The creek is running fast, the lawns are waterlogged but everyone is having a great time!


Watch this space for the unfolding story of God's goodness to a sinful world!

"And Noah found grace in the eyes of God"

Family Camp Begins in Just Over a Week!

We are looking forward to another terrific Family Camp Week this year with great fun, fellowship and food! The purpose of Family Camp Week is to point people toward Christ and at the same time, provide the opportunity for growing, relaxing and having fun together as a family. Our week includes biblical teaching for all ages as well as a balanced mix of open and structured programs. In fact, something for everyone!

Camp Li-Lo-Li provides an ideal setting for the whole family to be surrounded by God's beautiful creation, refreshed in their journey with the Lord, and strengthened as a family.

Our speakers this year are Dan Smith from Emmaus Bible College, Dubuque IA and Sandy McEachern from Elora, Canada.



Dan Smith has served at Emmaus Bible College since 1959 as faculty, Dean, President and currently as Chancellor/faculty.  He has written two books and has extensive experience in counseling, family seminars and camp and conference ministries.  He serves as an elder emeritus at Arbor Oaks Bible Chapel. He and his wife, Martha, have three children and eight grandchildren.

Our Theme: For He Who Promised is Faithful - Hebrews 10:23

Underwater Repairs at Camp Li-Lo-Li

This past weekend we saw a very unusual sight at camp - a scuba diver in the pool! We needed to get some new safety drain covers installed on the bottom of the pool and Andy Palmer came to the rescue!

Andy has done some diving in the past and is very comfortable working underwater. In a very short time, the new drain covers were installed, we are compliant with the New York state authorities and we have a pool that is going to be safe for a summer full of campers!

Thanks Andy!

A Busy Weekend of Ropes Course Training!

In order to maintain our Ropes Course certifications, the course needs to be inspected annually by a approved ropes course inspector and the facilitators are required to demonstrate their proficiency on every aspect of the course. This week both of those important requirements were met!

On Monday, Signature Research came up and inspected all of the events at camp as well as our equipment and gave us the go-ahead for the coming year.





On Friday evening, a number of our experienced faciltators met to review safety protocols, demonstrate their skills and discuss how best to use the Ropes course to help move the spiritual mission of camp forward. This year we were also joined by three trainees who are eager to assist at camp!

We are always looking for more people who are willing to make the commitment to be trained on our Ropes Course and to serve our campers and guest groups. Our challenge course especially provides many opportunities to share the Gospel and to present the truths of God's word! Contact us for more information!
