Who works at Camp Lakeshore?
Our Camp Director is Jim Bueche.
Jim grew up in upstate New York, where his love for the outdoors grew. Since graduating high school Jim has spent, every summer in camps around the United States. He graduated in 2011 from Paul Smiths College, with a recreation degree.
After that, he traveled around the country working seasonally in the outdoor education field, before landing in Illinois at Camp Henry Horner. While at Camp Henry Horner, Jim built a great day camp program, retreat center, and overnight camp program. When Jim is not at camp, he enjoys spending time outdoors or embarking on awesome expeditions.

What makes our camp team different?
- Lead Counselors are carefully chosen for their expertise in education, recreation, or theater. A Lead Counselor oversees each age group and guides the group through their daily experiences.
- Camp Counselors all must have previous experience working with youth and are selected for their enthusiasm, experience, and professionalism.
- All LSF Camp Staff is extensively trained before camp begins, mastering our policies and procedures, CPR/First Aid, as well as how to effectively engage and develop youth. All camp counselors are age 18 or older and all camp staff completes a background check.
- Camp Lakeshore team members all have silly camp nicknames and trading cards that campers can earn – Meet Lead Counselor Taco below!
