Why Lutherlyn? 

At Lutherlyn we combine the love of God with fun, friends,swimming, playing in the wood, adventure challenges, Bible study, worship, cookouts, campfires, discoveries in nature, games, and a few surprises into unforgettable Life-Changing Adventures in Faith.

Lutherlyn provides a summer camping experience in the finest tradition of Lutheran Outdoor Ministry.

Through:

  • an unfaltering commitment to Gospel-centered living;
  • a commitment to experiential learning;
  •  the witness and role-modeling of an intensively trained staff of mature Christian men and women;
  • small group “family” living;
  • a diverse offering of both familiar and “out-of-the-box” program activities;
  • a commitment to respect all life and care for the earth;
  • and a creative and practical approach to Bible study and worship.

Lutherlyn provides children and youth an opportunity to grow:

  • in a sense of the joy and goodness of life;
  • in living a Christ and faith-centered life;
  • in stewardship of self, others, and the earth;
  • and in a sense of their God-given worth, gifts, and ability to make a difference.

Your Staff - The Lutherlyn staff consists of 60 dedicated people specially trained (including First Aid & CPR) to ensure a safe, meaningful, and enjoyable ADVENTURE IN FAITH!  A registered nurse, certified water-safety instructor, and lifeguards are on site at camp all summer long to provide for the health and safety of each camper.

Camp Life—Campers live in cabins furnished with bunk beds and bathrooms, including showers. Counselors live with their cabin group and campers are never left unsupervised. Cabin groups eat, play, learn, and live together as a family. There are also opportunities each day for campers to explore their own interests and get to know others in the whole camp community. Meals are served buffet style in the Dining Hall.  All summer programs at Lutherlyn include morning devotions, Bible study, worship, and evening devotions every day regardless of the focus of the camp program. All specialty programs (everything that is not "classic" camp) will spend several hours each day focusing on their specialty activity but they will also have the opportunity to do all of the traditional camp activities (crafts, swimming, ropes course, games, nature activities, hikes, etc.).

Week-long programs run from Sunday afternoon (2:30-4pm check-in) until Friday evening (families invited for 6:30worship & 8pm departure).

“Juniors” will enter grades 4-6 in the fall, “Jr. Highs” will enter grades 7-9, “Sr. Highs” will enter grades 10-12 or be a 2018 graduate.

What am I paying for?

The camp fee includes all programming, three healthy meals a day, a snack each day, lodging, highly trained staff, and a camp picture. The only additional expense is an optional store account for campers to purchase snacks, drinks, and Lutherlyn merchandise at the camp store and crafts in the Craft Cabin. Rocketry campers have the option of purchasing additional rockets. Campers may give an offering from their store account to the annual “under the radar” ministry project.

Tiered Pricing - Why 3 Prices?

Realizing that everyone has a different ability to pay, Lutherlyn has instituted a voluntary three-tier fee program. You may choose the tier that is most suitable for your situation. It is really a free system; you tell us what is affordable for you and your family. All participants receive the same camp experience no matter what they pay! Tier I is our historically subsidized rate and does not reflect the true cost of operating summer camp programs. Tier II is our partially subsidized fee for those who can pay a little more but still cannot afford the actual cost of camp. Tier III more closely accounts for the true cost of camp.

OUR GOALS: ​

  • To provide the highest quality programs possible.
  • To serve all community income levels.
  • To preserve camp for generations to come. 

Again, this program is voluntary and in no way influences the experience anyone will receive.  It offers the opportunity for families/individuals to take an active role in supporting the true cost of the camp experience at Lutherlyn!      

Financial Assistance is available for campers who cannot afford to pay the entire camp fee. Please contact Lutherlyn for an application.  We are committed to offering a safe Christ-centered community that nurtures our camper’s growth. Lutherlyn promises never to turn a child away from the opportunity to come to camp because of financial circumstances.
