Theme Night!

Theme night takes place one night during supper and campers are encouraged to dress in their favorite themed outfit.  This will be an opportunity for campers to have fun and show their creativity.

Get excited! 2019 Summer theme is coming soon!


The Tribe

For kids campers ages 7 & 8 who will be attending any of the camps for ages 7-11 at LFR, we have made some important changes. This age group will be required to stay in a cabin with their own age group and they will be given a special camp schedule, age-appropriate Bible study curriculum, and continuous supervision for the entire camp. Due to their special developmental needs, we will be requiring more rest times and less late night activities for them. Also, we will have a special counselor and club leader giving them the care and supervision that they need. The Tribe aims to minister specifically to our youngest campers!


Speakers

We are going to have some incredible speakers for Summer 2019.

Captain Escape / Rich Landry

Rich Landry via Captain Escape Ministries will make you laugh, make you smile, make you wonder and make you think.  He can talk to all ages and has a heart for people that shines thru for Christ.  He has taught in his local church for over 10 years and has been Ordained in the Gospel Ministry for Christ.  He is easy to work with and believes that we should have fun no matter the task.  In fact Rich makes everything fun!

 As for his escape ability, it is outstanding.  Rich has studied the art of escape for over 10 years.  He has mastered 6 World Class escapes, which include three of the Great Harry Houdini's original escapes.  He compliments another great US Escape Artist by perfecting the Chain Straight Jacket escape.  In addition he has created two "Captain Escape" originals.  The first is called the Boo Box.  In this escape he is locked in a rectangular box with a glass window where you watch him escape from hand shackles locked with combination locks that are fresh from their packaging.  He then turns and works a combination lock on the outside of the box by feel only…this escape truly highlights his perfection of the art.  The second and one of the most mind-boggling is called the Cube.  It is a 27" glass cube where he is handcuffed, stuffed in the cube then it is wrapped with 4 chains all locked on the outside.  He amazingly escapes in less than 3 minutes.  It leaves people amazed and wondering, "How does he do it."  Finally no challenge is too great as he often accepts challenges to escape from locks he has never seen.  He is truly an Escape Professional.

Whether he is juggling, doing magic or escaping from one of his 6 World Class Escapes, you never forget that he loves people and wants everyone to know about Christ.  Rich’s only regret is that he doesn't have enough time to do all the things he loves.  With that he runs his family's Pecan Farm, full time business, helps with other ministries and local community events, which only allows him to speak and entertain as Captain Escape at limited number of events a year.  So if you are ready for a fun filled evening or weeklong camp, Captain Escape is ready to deliver.  He will bring his crazy sense of humor, big escapes and his smile to make your event the perfect Christ-honoring occasion, but book quickly because when he fills up - he is full.

Rich and his wife have three adult children and a granddaughter and live in Granger, TX. He travels the country sharing God’s love through Captain Escape.
