Choose the Week—Choose the Adventure!
This summer each week has it own unique and awesome theme! Special activities, crazy characters and more than a few surprises await you, so pick your week and join the fun!
Note: All campers, regardless of which program they sign up for, will participate in aspects of the week’s theme. This is different than the “Specialty Camps”. Example: Water Week – All Junior High and Elementary campers will play water based all camp games and has the chance to sign up “Adventure By Choice” activities that include fishing, pontoon boat rides and water balloon games.
If that sounds familiar that is because this curriculum has the same title as the theme for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering. It has been written in collaboration with the gathering team. The lessons are not the same but compliment those that will be used for the gathering.
As people, we are born into a broken world. God’s desire for wholeness and life for us and the rest of creation was made known to us in the life and death of Jesus. This action by God through Christ literally changes everything – the world, us and how we live in community with one another. Through this curriculum, campers will learn how God’s grace changes these things and how we can work with others to show that grace to the world. The daily themes include Our Hearts (Luke 24:13–35, the walk to Emmaus), Our Identity (Acts 9:1–18, the conversion of Saul), Our Purpose (Matthew 25:31–46, the parable of the king, the sheep, and the goats), Our Community (Matthew 15:21–28, the Canaanite woman), and Our Perspective (Luke 15:11–32, the parable of the prodigal father and the wayward son).
Please note: Specialty Camps (such as Horse Camp, H2O Adventure, Hooked Fishing Camp, etc.) have additional Activity Fees.
All discounts are supplemented by Lutherdale’s Campership Fund. The Campership Fund is supported by a number of contributing individuals, families, and congregations and is used to offset the total cost of a week of camp.
Lutherdale believes the camp experience should be offered and available to anyone. To make sure the camp experience is available to all, financial assistance (known as camperships) are available and supported through generous donations. If you would like more information on campership availability, please contact the Camp Office and request a Campership Coupon.
