Welcome to CAMP LANEY!

Today's world is becoming more complex each day. Children are exposed to many different lifestyles and values and must choose among them. At Camp Laney we emphasize many traditional values, and our staff and program are directed toward helping each boy lead a happier, richer and more fulfilling life. The camp activities will provide your son with some of his most exciting boyhood memories. He will talk about his adventures at camp for years to come.

“As a staff member, I loved working with young kids and it taught me way more than any college internship could. Some of my life-long friendships were built at camp. I’m a Laney boy for life.”

BY Lee Hogan - Camper/Staff

We have been coming to Camp Laney for 12 years.  Our boys have been a camper, WCIT, and staff.  My husband and I both agree that sending our boys to Laney has been the BEST investment.  We have watched them grow into confident young men.  Summers can easily get filled up by other activities including sports.  However, we have always felt it was important to carve out two weeks for camp because they learn life skills just by experiencing the fresh air and being outdoors with other boys.  Plus, they have tons of fun every time they come.  Each year they attend it is like coming home for them.  They love it!!

BY Robyn Remotigue - Parent

“It has been a particular joy in my life to watch my sons fall in love with this very special place and the magnificent people who make sure that its special purpose is fulfilled.  I have had the distinct pleasure to see both my sons develop dramatically more confidence and self-reliance over just two weeks on top of Lookout Mountain.”

BY William Propst - Former Camper/Staff - Atlanta, GA

“My favorite things to do at Camp are Zooker Ball and Bombardy. The reason why I like these things is because they are both two of the most fun games in the world.”

BY Thomas Morris - Camper, Dothan, AL

“From (The Directors) Rob, Whitney and Luke, down to each counselor, to every CIT, I know that Laney brings together the type of person I want influencing/teaching my boys during those special weeks on the mountain.”

BY David Rains - Parent, Tuscaloosa, AL

“Every camper comes to Laney a little homesick or nervous. The best part of working at Camp Laney is helping these campers overcome their fears and seeing their maturity grow every day. I wouldn’t trade my Camp Laney experiences for anything.”

BY Logan Lanier - Camper/Staff

“The counselors are nice, they are always there for you, they help with all the activities, they take good care of you in your cabin and they play games with us.”

BY Andrew Hodges - Camper, Baton Rouge, LA

“The best thing is seeing all my camp friends on Opening Day and meeting my new cabinmates.”

BY Foster Wood - Camper, Signal Mountain, TN

“Words alone cannot explain the great impact Camp Laney continues to have on my life. If I had any advice for those interested in attending or working at Laney it would be to not let this opportunity pass you by!”

BY Chris Kudirka - Camper/Staff

“When we drop him off at camp each year, there is a comforting feeling knowing that he is going to be in a safe environment that will challenge him socially, physically and spiritually.”

BY Danna Hodges - Baton Rouge, LA
