Lurecrest reaches out to youth in need by offering two free summer camp sessions - camp care and new venture camp. * for 24 years, camp care ("cancer ain't really the end") (a charlotte, nc non-profit serving children affected by cancer) has sent children affected by cancer and their siblings to a week of camp free of charge. Camp care brings their own volunteer and medical staff to facilitate the week of camp on our facilities. * separately, camp lurecrest runs new venture camp for children abused/neglected (physically, emotionally, sexually) in the care of charlotte/mecklenburg county youth & family services. This week of summer camp is free to the children and is funded by donations received at camp lurecrest's annual golf tournament.
camp lurecrest hosts retreats and rental camps for churches, youth, college and adult groups to support christian emphasis programs. The relationships formed with leaders and guests of these retreats also raise awareness of the summer camp and overall mission of camp lurecrest ministries.
