CAMP LANEY MISSION STATEMENT

The purpose of Camp Laney is to offer each camper a challenging, fun, SAFE, and well supervised camp experience. Each camper will grow in spiritual awareness, physical capabilities, social relationships and in the development of self-esteem. The Camp Laney experience provides a lifetime of memories, friendships, and appreciation of the rugged natural beauty of our world.

Summer Camp provides the opportunity for boys to try new things, to begin to learn how to take care of themselves, to gain in self confidence, to make friends that will last a lifetime. The importance of summer camp and drawing on each of their own experiences at Laney led parents, camp alumni, and staff alumni to come together in an effort to further support the mission of Camp Laney. Through many conversations and belief in the importance of summer camp, The Camp Laney Foundation was created with one simple purpose; to provide financial assistance to boys who would not otherwise be able to attend Camp Laney.

“There is hardly a summer of my childhood that did not include a fun-filled two-week session at Camp Laney full of fond memories, incredible new experiences, and lifelong friendships. My three younger brothers and I all enjoyed our Camp Laney experience so much that we each spent most of our summers during college working as camp counselors on the Laney Staff as well. As both a camper and counselor, I have seen firsthand what an incredibly positive impact Camp Laney has had on the lives of countless young men. As a dad myself now, I am so thankful that Camp Laney will help shape the lives of my two sons as well during their summers at Camp. To me and my family Camp Laney is HOME. There is no doubt that Camp Laney helped make me a better man, husband, father, and friend; that is a debt I can never fully repay but for which I will be forever grateful. For these reasons, I will always support Camp Laney to ensure that this special place continues to impact the lives of “Laney boys” for years to come. The Camp Laney Foundation allows me the chance to “pay it forward” and to provide the same priceless summer camp experience to many future “Laney boys” who are no less deserving of this wonderful, life-changing opportunity.” - Camp Laney Foundation Board Member, Ryals Stone
