Why Church Camp?


Summer is quickly approaching and it’s time to consider summer camp.  Did you know that adults who attended church camp as a youth are more than 3 times as likely to remain affiliated with a religious community than those who never attended camp?  Lutheran Camping Corporation offers the very best in outdoor ministry programs at Kirchenwald and Nawakwa. 

  • Campers practice living a faithful life in a non-threatening environment.

  • Campers have opportunities for quiet, individual devotion as well as dynamic, participatory worship.

  • Campers learn how to be disciples, eager to proclaim the Gospel and serve others.

All this while having a great time in the great outdoors. This is faith in formation… and it takes place within the setting of an outdoor community that seeks to build character, foster independence, encourage good relationships, and teach life skills… benefits that campers will carry with them for the rest of their lives.  Camp brochures are now available for 2018 and can be found on the table in the back of the narthex.   Discounts are available and are outlined in sheets included in the brochures.  Full payment discount camp registration must be received at camp by April 7, 2018.  Register on-line or send payment directly to the camp, minus your Holy Trinity deduction.  Camp will bill the church for our share of cost.  Check it out: https://www.lutherancamping.org/

 

 

And camping isn’t just for kids!  In addition to camping opportunities for kids K-11, Family Camp is offered at both Nawakwa and Kirchenwald and Elder Camp is offered at Nawakwa.  Family Camp provides the same fun activities as regular camping, but also offers the opportunity to grow closer together and closer to God through intergenerational activities.  Accommodations are in either rustic cabins or in the comfortable lodges, depending on your preference. More information in the brochures or on-line.  Contact Lisa Garrett if you have any questions: lrgacd@yahoo.com">lrgacd@yahoo.com or 717-490-1927.
