Jr. & Sr. High “TREE HOUSE CAMP” | Usually the 3rd week in June | Luther Park Camp, Danbury, WI | For Grades 7-12
Known as Night Owl Camp to many, campers experience all the natural resources Luther Park has to offer with hands-on environmental education activities relating to all of God’s creations but in a new “light.” See and hear the sights and sounds of the great north woods in the dark by staying up late and of course, sleeping in in the morning. In this outpost program, youth spend a week in rustic tree houses, working together to grow in a relationship with God, the environment and each other. This adventure will challenge and strengthen campers in all aspects of life. They will have the opportunity to cook over an open fire, explore, get dirty, get away from the crowd and have a ton of fun in God’s great outdoors! A bathhouse with flush toilets, hot and cold running water, and showers are available. BONUS FOR 2019: A mini-leadership training course will be added to week 1 only. Campers can expect to learn and gain new leadership skills along with gaining new environmental knowledge. These skills will be put into practice at camp, too!
Summer Festival Camp

SUMMER FESTIVAL CAMP |Usually mid-July | Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN (one of our local ELCA affiliated colleges)

For students who have finished grade 6 through grade 9.
High School Ministry Academy is available for students who have finished grade 9 through grade 12. Summer Festival is a unique retreat for young people. For a week during the summer, teens have the chance to get away from real life, hang out with people from all across the Midwest, deepen friendships, and talk about Jesus. Every day, speakers share inspiring stories about real life, Jesus, and how the two intertwine. The days are packed with fun surprises of all kinds. Music, videos, the games, the speakers, and club – Summer Festival Camp really has something for everybody. This summer, see what life can really be. Come to camp and experience what really matters: God, good friends, making memories and lots of laughs.  Contact Pastor Dan Doerrer to register your son or daughter.  For more information visit:
