About Us

The Lake Nixon Outdoor Center is a 215-acre recreational facility with a 35-acre lake located at 18500 Cooper Orbit Road just outside of Little Rock, Arkansas. Lake Nixon was purchased by Second Baptist Church in Downtown Little Rock in late 1968. Second Baptist purchased the property to develop a summer day camp program to provide working families a place for their children to thrive in the summer months.

Lake Nixon has offered an integrated Summer Day Camp program since 1969 and seeks to be a pristine, sacred space where God's presence may be sensed through worship, education, recreation, and sanctuary. The Lake Nixon Outdoor Center welcomes individuals of all ages to engage in conversations around civil rights history, contemporary race relations, homelessness, and poverty. Activities at Lake Nixon Outdoor Center include a summer day camp program, environmental education programming, overnight groups, family and church parties, swimming, riding paddle boats, fishing, hiking and picnicking.

Lake Nixon Outdoor Center is a Christian ministry and we are looking for staff candidates who have a strong love for God and service to families, students and children.
