Summer at the Lake


Summer Reading Camps will offer reading enrichment to early elementary students this summer with the goal of helping students avoid the learning losses over summer break, known as ‘the summer slump’. Morning and afternoon sessions are available at two Bachman Lake sites on Mondays through Thursdays. To register, volunteer, or to learn more, contact Andrea at

Summer Youth Corps is an opportunity for local youth to become part of a community service team this summer, from June 4th - July 14th.  Teens will grow in their faith to become leaders in the community by serving others in need.  Casa del Lago staff will encourage youth to dig deep in God’s Story and explore how living inside His story shapes their lives. After a week of team building and training for reading intervention, The Youth Corps will practice the things they are learning as they serve Bachman Lake kids through 4 weeks of summer reading camps. Forty to 53% of Bachman Lake 3rd graders failed the STARR exam in 2016.  We’ll equip teenagers to step into the gap and help local elementary students improve their reading this summer. Summer Youth Corps has deeply shaped the lives of young people who have participated.
