Middle School



Our thriving ministry for the young men ages 2nd grade through 8th grade at Lakeside is our Cadets program. A part of The Calvinist Cadet Corp, Lakeside boys learn of Christ’s love for them through bible lessons and project time. Complete with fun and food, our Lakeside Cadets are part of more than 600 clubs throughout North America. Our Cadets meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month (and the 5th, if applicable) and focus on growing and developing boys into young men devoted to Jesus.

The Cadet group is always looking for men wishing to mentor our youth – or support them in other ways through the Pinewood (wood race car) Derby or the campouts. Our Cadet counselors are responsible for the bible study and lesson as well as the project the boys work on throughout their meetings.
