“we got your back”

we are sooo excited to be in the third year of our annual middle summer camp at lutherhaven on wildcat lake, june 24-28th.  this camp is an awesome gem right in our own backyard, and we can’t wait to experience the presence of God in this wilderness setting (as well as some slip and slide dodge ball)!

cost – (registration & payment steps at bottom of this page) – $90 per youth (click here for financial assistance).  because we are part owners of the camp, we can offer a full 4 day/night camp for this amazing price.  and yes, it IS overnight.

what is it? – summer camp is a 4 day/night camp out for middle schoolers guided by caring leaders. we’ll fill our days with great meals, crazy games, hikes, swimming and boating, and our nights with songs, devos, campfire, and more.  you’ll leave inspired, connected, and spent.

bonus – does your family love camping together?  prior to middle camp, come for family camp over the weekend (june 22rd-24th).  details and registration here.

what is this place? – lutherhaven is a rustic camp owned by 7 area churches, and is equipped with separate cabins and bathrooms/showers for both boys and girls, lodge with kitchen, basketball and volleyball courts, lake access and swimming area, several kinds of boats, paddleboards, play fields, and wilderness areas.
