Section 1: LCC Rental Rules

Your Rental Reservation is confirmed when we receive your required deposit & signed Statement of Faith. For your convenience, Master Card, Visa, Discover, American Express cards are accepted as well as checks and cash for rental deposits and fees.

The balance of your bill is required at check in. If you plan to arrive after 5 p.m. or on a Saturday or Sunday please notify the Camp Office at 716-795-3216 to make arrangements for a late check-in.

Check-in time is 4 p.m. Check-out time is 11 a.m.

Those renting most of our housing units are not permitted to bring pets inside the unit. We only have one cabin that allows dogs and that unit requires an extra $100 refundable deposit if there is no damage or additional cleaning of the cabin at check-out. Those using tents, campers and RV sites are permitted to bring pets. Pets are not permitted in any facility buildings. All pets on LCC grounds are the responsibility of the owner, must be kept quiet, on a leash at all times, picked up after, and have proof of rabies inoculation.

If your stay is during our scheduled camps and services and your party is not participating, you are expected to engage only in activities that will not interfere with the camp’s activities.

NO SWIMMING is allowed – no lifeguard is provided for camp guests.

STAY OFF THE ROCKS ON THE SHORELINE All the rocks & stones are there to preserve the shoreline and ARE NOT STABLE!

NO SMOKING, ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OR FOUL LANGUAGE

Always be considerate of your neighbors. This is very important at evening campfires!

Please observe the 11:00 P.M. Quiet Curfew in place on LCC grounds.

Deposit all trash in the dumpsters before leaving the grounds. This is a required step prior to check-out to eliminate creatures from “visiting” after your stay. Dumpsters are located at the South East end of the grounds & on the West side of the Commons building. Please see the Check-In/Check-Out procedures for additional information.

The purpose of Lighthouse Christian Camp is to provide programs and an environment for spiritual inspiration, relaxation, recreation and fellowship in a Christian environment to make Christ known!

In addition to our regularly scheduled camps, programs and activities, opportunities for worship are:

Sunday Morning Worship 10:30 a.m. in the Tabernacle

Evening Bible Study Date, Time & Location TBD (See the office for a schedule.)

If problems arise during your stay, do not hesitate to contact the office at 716-795-3216.

Thank you for your cooperation. We hope that your stay at Lighthouse Christian Camp is both pleasant and inspirational and appreciate your part in assisting us to serve with excellence.
