~The Water of Life~
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.”
Welcome to Junior Camp 2017!!! The dedicated Junior Staff of counselors, teachers, and deans have been busy planning an exciting and unforgettable week for you. Whether you are a returning camper, or new to camp this year, we can’t wait to spend the week with you. During this week, you will be able to learn how God is the Water of Life, make new friends, try new things, and start/continue your ten year journey through Camp Luther. Campers are able to explore a closer relationship with God and his teachings through classes, different types of worship services, theme oriented activities, small group activities and all camp events.
Camp begins on Sunday, June 18, 2017, with afternoon registration beginning at 2pm and ends Saturday, June 24th. Each camper that applies prior to May 31st will receive a camp shirt upon arrival at no extra charge. Each camper will receive a schedule of cabin/counselor assignment, class schedule, and will be able to deposit money in the “bank”. All of the Junior’s cabins and activities throughout the day, are located in lower camp. The experienced counselors will be there to guide your son/daughter with moving into the cabin, follow the daily schedule, and will remain a steady presence throughout the week. After registration, the campers are free to swim, play games, and meet new friends. Dinner will be served at 5pm and immediately following will be an all camp worship and assembly with individual programs where we will introduce all of the Junior Staff and take them on a tour of the camp to orient them and show them their boundaries.
