You want your child to have a memorable summer camp experience.
The problem is that it can be scary to trust your children to other people because you worry that your kid will get lost in the crowd or not be seen for the amazing person that they are.
At Lutherdale, we believe that every child deserves to be welcomed, accepted, known, and celebrated in a Christ-centered environment.
We have over 75 years of experience in running summer camps. We follow over 300 standards established by the American Camp Association in order to provide a safe space for your children.
Our program model is set up around small groups so that every camper has a Cabin Leader that will invest in, care for, and nurture your child. Each camper gets time to try and practice new activities and leadership skills to learn more about what they love. Every day, all week long, campers are accepted and celebrated for exactly who God made them to be. We know that children come from varied backgrounds, have unique abilities, and see the world through their own lenses. We celebrate this and will love YOUR child for their uniqueness.
We are restricting numbers this summer so that we can be COVID-safe. That means that weeks are already filling up. It is really important that you register early this year so that you can get the week that you want.
This is the summer to give your kids the adventure of camp.
2021 Summer Camp Deposit Policy – The $100 Deposit for summer programs is non-refundable. In light of COVID-19, should a camper need to cancel their summer program due to illness, or otherwise, the $100 deposit may be rolled over to any upcoming program at Lutherdale. The deposit may also be transferred between immediate family members.
If campers registered for camp in the summer of 2020 and chose not to attend, their deposits and any other registration fees have been rolled over to this year and are available to campers in the registration portal. They are listed as “payment vouchers”.
