Camp LEAD, the 6th Year

It was a crazy summer at Camp LEAD. We experience a range of activities including tubing and skiing, spend the night camp, archery, campfires, hiking, dining at a formal restaurant, and much more. In addition, each child is given daily swim lessons where many learn to swim for the first time. Check out what we’ve done this summer!

Camp LEAD was such an amazing experience for my child. I believe it has taught her so much and she can't wait for next year.

We thank you for a wonderful time at Camp Lead. Thank you to ALL that had anything to do with this program in any way.

Just a few miles from the most expensive houses in the inner city of Huntsville AL were men, women, and children surviving without the basic necessities. No running water or electricity. Plumbing didn’t work and floors were rotted from leaking pipes. Children had broken toys and went to bed hungry. A man with a heart for this inner city neighborhood stepped into the home of a little girl and her mother. That visit opened the man’s eyes and eventually a community’s eyes to the great need in their midst: the  need for Christ.

Lincoln Village Ministries is the product of one man’s call to action. The call has spread all over the city of Huntsville to pour out the hope and love of Jesus Christ into the Lincoln community.

4 – Focus Areas of Camp LEAD

Camp LEAD operates for 7-weeks of the summer. This prevents the Lincoln Academy students from experiencing the summer slide.


Leadership: Camp Lead sets high standards for each child to develop positive Christian leadership skills in an environment that is safe, supportive, and loving so that God’s principles may be fully displayed.

Education: Camp Lead creates an environment where fun and learning go hand in hand. Our goal is to give each child confidence to return to school with greater physical abilities, spiritual enlightenment, emotional support, and intellectual skills so that each child can celebrate their God-given talents.

Action: Camp Lead encourages our children to take action and be positive change agents in their community in order to advance the glory and knowledge of the kingdom of God.

Development: Camp Lead encourages each child to develop the eight principles of a healthy lifestyle: exercise, nutrition, time in nature, community service, relationships, recreation, relaxation/stress management, and religious principles. Camp Lead exposes the children to the attributes of well-balanced life.
