OUR HISTORY

For over 50 years, Camp Luther of Nebraska has provided outdoor ministry experiences. It amazing to see what God has done, and is doing, to use this place to share Christ and bless others!

Camp Luther of NE, Inc. had its genesis in the early 1960s, spearheaded by a joint effort from a group of dedicated lay people and pastors formed by the then Northern and Southern Nebraska Districts. This group began promoting the idea of a camp for the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in the Nebraska District, and their vision caught on, coming to fruition in 1965 when the 160 acre Schuyler, NE site was purchased from the Divis family. The down-payment for the property was provided for through the generosity of the Walther League, the LLL, and the LWML, and in 1967, the camp was incorporated as “Camp Luther of Nebraska.”

The first building moved on site was a one room school house now known as “Alpha House.” The lake, as well as various buildings, were added over a period of years. Today the camp consists of 16 buildings and provides Christ-centered programs and activities for the children, youth, adults of the Nebraska District and beyond!
