2nd Session: Scotty Lee

Scotty’s involvement with Camp Smiling Acres began in 1974 at the age of 9. His family has a rich history with Camp. His parents and both of his sisters served as staff members for many years. Scotty began counseling at Camp Smiling Acres at the age of 15 and he became an assistant director in 1991. Scotty’s move to director of Second Session came in 1995.

Scotty and his wife Lisa have been married since 1988 and have two children: Chelsea and Philip, and gained a son-in-law, Spencer, in 2017. Lisa was baptized at First Session of Camp Smiling Acres in 1982, and has been the Head Cook of Second Session since 1995. She loves seeing the kids return year after year to experience the same love and appreciation that she has for Camp and its mission.

Scotty believes Camp Smiling Acres is a mission field where children are able to experience the love of Christ and the beauty of God’s creation. It is a place to build lasting friendships and memories.


3rd Session: Seth Lackie

I am Seth Lackie and I am the session director for Session 3 of Camp Smiling Acres. I have been involved
with Camp Smiling Acres for over 20 years. I went as a camper every year I could and started counseling
at 15 years old. My family has been heavily involved with Camp since it was started with almost all of
them serving as staff at some point in their lives.

My wife, Lisa Lackie, and I have been married since 2008 and we have two children, Kaiden and Kylie.
When we were dating, I told Lisa “I will be working Camp at least one week every summer… FOREVER!”
Lisa laughed and said she supported me all the way. Now we are both out helping these young teens
learn the Truth about the Gospel and how to have a strong support group for when they face all the
tough decisions in life.

I believe that Camp is a place where kids can be kids and can learn to walk with God and his majesty and
enjoy friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime. We hope to encourage those who are
Christians to keep running the race, and to inspire those who don’t know about the freedom of Christ to
see how fun being a Christian can be!
