About Lighthouse


     Lighthouse Christian Camp is a supernatural work of God, a miracle ministry born out of the heart of God for the fatherless, the helpless, the orphan, the poor and needy, and the widow. 

     In 1982, God called Bro. Ben and Mrs. Ermeda Chapman to begin a camp on Center Hill Lake in Smithville, Tennessee. 

     “Day by day as I prayed and listened to God. He gave me directions, step by step, in what He wanted done. Then one day He put this question in my mind. “What about those children that nobody cares about, the poor and needy, the forgotten, the helpless and fatherless children? The children that would never otherwise have the opportunity to do all the fun things at camp and come to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ,” 

     “So we obeyed and they came and now thousands of needy children have come to camp, free of charge, and found hope, purpose and direction for their lives in a personal relationship with the Lord over the past 37 years.” 

Standards of Conduct


Formal “How to Be a Good Camp Counselor” staff training will take place before the start of camp. During training, we will review the following standards of conduct and expectations as well as subjects such as camp rules, first aid, medication management, camper awards and more.

This is a conservative camp. This is especially true pertaining to our standard of living for Jesus Christ. The inspired Word of God never changes, will guide us and keep us on a path towards righteousness, “and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
