We are inviting new and past campers to kick off the summer season in a BIG way at our Open House!
Meet the 2020 Summer Staff, take a tour of the camp, enjoy the waterfront and slip n slide, play Ga Ga Ball, rock the Climbing Wall, see the farm animals and check out the camp store.
There is no charge for the event, so bring your friends and family out and have a great time at Lutherdale. *Note: To climb the Tower, participants need close-toed shoes.
The following programs currently have a waitlist:
Choose the Week—Choose the Adventure!
This summer each week has its 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 have the chance to sign up for “Adventure By Choice” activities that include fishing, pontoon boat rides, and water balloon games.
Continuing the Journey Together
Many of us can remember a time when mapping a route meant ensuring you had a
folded paper map in your glove box. You mapped out each stop on your journey.
Today, we use our smart device to search for what we need. With the maps used
today, we are at the center. The tracker follows our location and shows us what’s
ahead. If we get sidetracked at nearby destinations or exploring different routes, it
can bring the screen right back to our current location.
The same can be true of our faith journey. Many have gotten to a place where it
feels like we are the center, everything should revolve around us. We are given a
large map, and sometimes it’s impossible to find our location. Sometimes we find
our location and know exactly where we are going, only to wind up lost again in
a few hours. Our faith walks can be complicated and messy, with many twists and
turns. This is what makes them unique to each of us.
It’s often said that it’s not the destination but the journey that makes the
difference. Along our faith journey, we will get lost, and we will take wrong turns.
Through all of that, we will also continue to grow and be challenged along
Lutherdale is one of the many stops along your camper’s journey that helps
provide a place to grow in their faith. Through big moments and little epiphanies;
every day your camper be challenged to overcome fears and find their
We welcome your camper to continue their journey this summer as Lutherdale
provides a safe place to be challenged and to grow as a faith community. This
ministry is a journey together; between our staff, campers, volunteers and families.
We look forward to having you be a part of the next step in life as a community.
