Buddies-SliderPortage Lake Buddies is a special three day camp designed for campers – ages 10-50 – who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend camp based on their needs. Our entire summer staff will be there to serve and connect with everyone who comes!  Campers will be in cabins based on gender and age, as well as level of care. Portage Lake Buddies is an awesome opportunity for campers to experience God, Portage Lake, and each other! There will be plenty of games and activities, amazing and fun chapel sessions with Jerry Jacoby, and lots more!

Meet the speaker: Jerry Jacoby

“I love stories about Jesus, I love happy songs and I love Portage Lake Buddies. This is going to be fun!”

What do Jerry Jacoby and his pet chicken, Elmer, have in common? They both love kids and talking about Jesus! That’s a great combination for Portage Lake Bible Camp where he’ll be speaking this summer for his one millionth year!  Music, Bible-time guests, his amazing wife Michaella and loads of fun.  See you there!
