Your Christmas will never be the same!

Christmas parties

“Lighthouse Christian Camp, located in Smithville, TN, ministers to disadvantaged children of Middle Tennessee. We bring children, ages 9 - 11 years old to camp during the summer and back again on weekends throughout the year. Over the past 30+ years, we have brought over 18,500 children to camp FREE! We provide a BIG CHRISTMAS PARTY for these children each year. We expect 800 children!


A "CAMP STORE" is set up with donated items from individuals, like yourself. These items are placed on tables and valued from $1-$10.00. Each child is given $35 'play money' to shop for their family members. A list is provided below for the type of things needed to supply the camp store. Bring your boxes of UNWRAPPED items to your church or to your designated person or location. You may also make a monetary donation to the camp to be used for the Christmas Parties. Be a vital part of a child’s life during the Christmas Season by giving to these disadvantaged children. This will be the only Christmas many of these children will know.
