Buildings & Lodging

The Dining Hall is one of New Life Camp’s original buildings, overlooking camp’s private lake. Indoor and outdoor seating is available to meet every camper’s preference. Meals are served buffet style and tailored to your particular group.

The Café, often referred to as the Snack Shack, is a great place to relax and enjoy the company of fellow campers. Cold beverages, a variety of snacks, and camp merchandise can be purchased in the Café. It is a great place for small group meetings, game nights (board games and playing cards available), and hanging out. The Café seats 40-50 campers comfortably, and is open at your group’s convenience.

A camp favorite, the Blob has two levels to choose from, sending your partner flying high, or bunny hopping into the lake. The blob is great for thrill seekers and fear conquerors alike

Feel the need for speed? To the side of the main beach area we have a 75 ft water slide built into the ground sending you straight into the lake

Campers can choose from canoes, paddle boats, or rowboats for a leisurely cruise around the lake

In the water you’ll find an entire obstacle course made up of the monkey dome, balance beam, and fox trot, and blockade from Aquaglide, as well as Rave’s 14’ high iceberg
