Summer Activities

Luther Park Bible Camp
June 24-29
“This Changes Everything”

Campers who have completed grades 2 through 12 are invited to come with us to Luther Park Bible Camp in Danbury, WI this summer from June 24-29 for a week of our favorite camp activities like swimming, crafts, outdoor worship, campfires, field games, night hikes and more! This camping adventure meets the needs and interests of today’s children and youth, providing a week to share and grow in Christian faith, life and community.

Through this summer’s theme, This Changes Everything, campers will learn how God’s grace changes these things and how we can work with others to show that grace to the world.

Here’s a glimpse of what each age can expect to experience at camp:

    • Grades 2-3 Three-Night Cabin Camp: An excellent opportunity for first timers to get a taste of camp life. A mini-camp (half-week) experience filled with everything a full-week camper experiences but in a shorter time frame.
        • Cost: $300, Campership of $85 is available
    • Grades 3-5 Full Week Alpha Camp: Enjoy a week of camp adventures which provide growth and expression of the Christian faith. Explore God’s creation or sing around a campfire. Hike the trails of the north woods, go swimming, engage with Bible stories and so much more!
        • Cost: $415, Campership of $100 is available
    • Grades 6-7 Full Week Beta Camp: Campers experience a week of adventures that provide growth, development and expression of the Christian faith. This is also a great opportunity for teens to work through some of the biggest questions of life.
        • Cost: $415, Campership of $100 is available
    • Grade 8 Full Week Treehouse Camp: Youth spend a week in rugged tree houses, working together to grow in a relationship with God, the environment and each other. This adventure will challenge and strengthen you in all aspects of your life. You 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!
        • Cost: $415, Campership of $100 is available
    • Senior High TIM Leadership Camp: Youth will learn leadership skills you can use in church, school and everyday life. You’ll learn how to lead devotions, Bible studies, worships, games and how to lead small groups. This is an opportunity that can go on resumes or applications for college.
        • Cost: $200
