Welcome to Intermediates! We are looking forward to another great week at Camp Luther this year. The theme for Camp Luther 2017 is “The Water of Life”. We are planning an exciting week to help us to better understand God’s blessing of water and how water relates to our Christian spiritual life. Our Intermediate staff is excited to welcome the campers each year and dedicated to making sure our campers have a fun, spirit-filled week.
Our Confirmation Class and Camp Course teachers are preparing daily learning activities to help you understand each day’s scripture and how water is a spiritual gift from God. The evening vesper services are held in beautiful scenic settings and our team building activities help reinforce the daily theme as well.
Our day will begin with morning worship, plenty of music and singing to get the blood pumping. Breakfast will follow, then cabin clean up before classes. Classes are held between 9 am and 12 pm each day, with lunch following. An afternoon assembly will be held to discuss activities for the remainder of the day and handout mail from home. A variety of afternoon activities are available for campers to participate in, allowing campers a time in their day to have fun while building friendships that will last a lifetime. At the close of the afternoon’s activities, all camp gathers for the Five O’clock News (5ON) where there is music, camper highlights and interesting recaps of the day’s events. Dinner follows the 5ON each day and then each program enjoys an evening activity and a vesper service to reflect God’s blessings and a chance to deepen our faith.
Evening activities are fun, exciting, encourage teamwork and a time for special memories to be made! This year’s line-up is:
Monday: OLYMPICS (bring old clothes/tennis shoes)
Tuesday POOL PARTY (after all, the week’s theme is WATER)
Wednesday ALL CAMP ACTIVITY followed by ALL CAMP VESPERS
Thursday SENIOR DANCE (Intermediates are invited and attend)
Friday DIRECTORY SIGNING AND SLIDE SHOW (a special look back at our week)
Whether you are a first-year camper or are a returning camper, you will find that the staff and campers in the Intermediate program will create memories and develop friendships that will forever change your life, for the better.
Intermediate camp is a lot of fun. At the same time, our program challenges each camper to learn more about themselves and how their faith plays an important part of who they are and strive to be throughout their life. When we leave on Saturday we will begin counting down the days until we all gather on the hillside of Camp Luther again!
Hope to see you at Camp Luther this year and for many years to come.
Peace and Love,
Tim and Robyn Rice
