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 all VBS weeks for the 2020 summer were canceled. We are planning for VBS in 2021.
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.

Lutherdale wants to help strengthen church youth programs, develop future church leaders, and help youth develop a relationship with God. Ultimately Lutherdale wants to be a tool for enriching your ministry. Lutherdale Staff would love to come visit your church and share how God is present in outdoor ministry. We can help introduce or build excitement for summer camp and retreat opportunities for your congregation. We love the opportunity to share the ministry of Lutherdale and answer the questions of parents, chaperones, and retreat guests. Schedule a Lutherdale Sunday today!
