Mission Statement

Lakeshore Center at Okoboji provides a sacred place and invites all to experience the life-changing love of Christ in the beauty of God's creation.

Welcome Friends of Lakeshore Center at Okoboji!


Welcome to Lakeshore Center at Okoboji.  It is our genuine belief that all children of God, both young and old and everyone in between, are called to retreat to a quiet place and be ministered to by God's Holy Spirit.  Our mission is to provide a sacred place and invite all to come and experience the life-changing love of Christ in the beauty of God's creation.  You do not need to be Presbyterian to enjoy Lakeshore.  ALL are welcome here.

Within this website, you will see that we have a lot to offer.  From summer camp opportunities to retreats for young and old, we hope that you will come to Lakeshore and get away from the busyness of life.  Come and reconnect or rediscover God in the rustling of the leaves on the trees.  Take a walk with God in conversation by the beach, or experience God in the laughter and joy that one may find at Lakeshore!
