faith takes guts

we are sooo excited to be in the fourth year of our annual middle summer camp at lutherhaven on wildcat lake, june 23-27th.  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)!  new this year – ga ga ball, 9 square in the air, and other games to build a gritty faith.

who? – those who have completed 6th grade – 8th grade

cost – (payment steps at bottom of this page) – $100 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.
