YOUTH RETREATS

Keep the excitement of camp going all year long by coming to camp this winter to explore the greatness of our Savior! We will lodge in cabins, dive into the Bible by looking deeper into what it means to build up our faith on our firm foundation in Christ, play outside, worship together, create community with some cool camp counselors, drink hot cocoa around a fire, and more! Don’t miss this chance to be back at camp!

Elementary and Middle School begins at 7:00 p.m. on Friday and ends at Closing Worship around 11:00 a.m. on Sunday.
(Parents are welcome to join!)

Lodging will be in a winterized cabin with bunk-style beds, each with its own bathroom and shower. You will also be with a Luther Crest counselor and approximately 8-9 other same-aged campers.
