Matt Spence

This is about to sound cheesy, but it’s true. One of my favorite things about Camp, especially as I have grown older, has been the core values! Community, Excellence, Fun, Personal Growth and Development, and Quality Relationships are things that I still strive for in...

Chris Arnold

Time on the Lake Hubert Waterfront is my favorite to daydream about, but the truth is that the staff at camp changed my life.  My summers working at Camp Lincoln with incredible staff comprise some of the best memories of my life.  In my six...

Kristine (Falk) Beverly

What a joy it is to be a camp mom! I have dreamt of these years ever since I was a camper and am thrilled to be able to offer the opportunity for my daughters, Kyla and Ava, to attend camp.  I wish that I...

Drew Saylor

Some of my earliest memories are actually at Camp Lincoln!  My father, Steve Saylor (S1995-1996), was the camp doctor when I was very young and I can remember playing tetherball with my mom in Prep Camp.  While growing up, we would look through our old...

I feel as though my experience in the Leadership Training Program shaped me for the rest of my life. I learned so much about goal-setting, determination, lasting relationships and, of course, leadership.  The LT Program was one of a kind.  In December of 1996, I...

Mark Hodgson

I love the anticipation of opening day. Staff bright eyed, campers excited, worried, full of anticipation.  The energy builds and builds through the day, and we always had lasagna for our evening meal. One summer I remember taking the kids to the athletic field to...

Karen (Kully) O’Keefe

I have many strong memories during my summer as a counselor at Camp Lake Hubert.  After leaving the dining hall after each meal, there were two paths that would take me back to the Clubhouse cabin.  I could walk through the woods or walk along...

Robert Eacret

Growing up, my Grandma lived in Wisconsin, and I would visit her every summer.  In 1993, we were looking for a camp in the Wisconsin/Minnesota area for me to go to after visiting her.  We came across Camp Lincoln and Camp Lake Hubert at a...
