We bring the camp to your congregation! Lutherdale VBS is designed to intentionally focus on connections; the kids to camp, the camp to the church, the church members to each other.
Lutherdale has some important information regarding VBS this summer. Due to the CDC guidelines, the safety of our staff, and the safety of VBS children we have decided to cancel all VBS weeks for the 2020 summer. This news saddens us, but we are already planning for VBS 2021.
All deposits can be transferred to VBS 2021 or can be used for any upcoming retreats.
With this in mind, Lutherdale’s property is still open, and if you would like to use our outdoor spaces following social distancing rules, groups can schedule a time to come to Lutherdale and enjoy the campus.
Sunday: The Lutherdale staff will arrive for your morning worship to meet kids and parents, lead songs or children’s messages, introduce the bible study, and kick off the week. Lutherdale staff will then meet with church staff and volunteers for any questions or concerns.
Monday– Thursday: The days are filled with bible study, crafts, games, and kid-friendly–camp-style worships, all based on the bible study theme of the day. Possibilities for water day and field trip programs.
Thursday Night: An evening closing program to share their experience with family and church members. After the program, Lutherdale staff will say farewell to youth and church and return to Lutherdale.

We want to help reconnect kids with Church, help build church youth programs, develop future church leaders, and help youth develop a relationship with God. Ultimately Lutherdale wants to be a tool for your ministry. Have Lutherdale come to your church and help get your congregation excited for camp, give parents an opportunity to get their questions answered by a Lutherdale staff member, and share stories of how God works in camp ministry.
