This summer at Camp Luther we'll be exploring what it means to "UNIQUE YET UNITED!" (1 Corinthians 12:12-13, 27)
"For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ...Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it."
We’re once again gearing up for another amazing summer camp season for 2016, and we’re excited to invite you and your family to join us! Our theme this year is “Unique; United”, based on the idea that we ALL are the many members of the One Body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 12: 12 reminds us that “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.” We are all important members of this family of believers, with unique abilities and gifts to help unite us as one body in Christ. This summer we hope to help your camper discover just what makes him/her unique and amazing, and in turn encourage them to use those qualities to build one another up in the one true faith!

A New Way of Pricing our Camps:
We’ve done our research and have decided to try a new tiered pricing structure this summer. This new format give us the opportunity to offer different prices to our customers which strive to find a balance between our actual costs and what you feel your family can afford. The first tier most accurately reflects the actual cost of providing camp ministry, whereas the second and third tiers are prices we can offer due to fundraising with partner congregations and generous donor gifts. If you have any questions at all regarding this new system, please don’t hesitate to call or email us directly, we’re happy to help. For now, all you need to do is select the payment tier that best fits your family’s financial situation when registering, all other elements of the registration process stay the same. Thanks!
