H2O, Lakewood’s  youth service organization, is happy to announce that they will be holding an in-person Summer Service Camp this year.

Lakewood residents entering grades 7-9 will spend time performing service activities and team building activities.  Trained high school/college aged students act as service mentors for the younger participants.  These skilled counselors supervise, instruct, motivate and empower their teams of five to six campers through a rich variety of hands on activities and learning experiences.
