“I like to visit [Ocean Park] at many different times of the year. The summer for the sun, the winter for the storms and pounding surf. What a joy to relax and take in the power of creation!”

“I have been going for Lazy F Camp & Retreat Center for about 5 years straight now and it has changed my life for the better. Way better. Lazy F Camp has helped me find myself and build a stronger relationship with God that I wouldn’t change for the world. Lazy F Camp is full of super fun activities and the nicest, most fun, and most polite people on the Planet. Lazy F Camp will always be my Home and I’m glad that I have been able to experience it’s awesomeness for so many years. Going to this camp was definitely the best decision I’ve made in my life, and this camp will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you Lazy F Camp for everything you have done, and everything you’ve meant to me in my life. You da bomb.”
