Our Programs > Adult > Lutheridge

Adults and families need Christian community too. Our program directors are nationally known for the quality of programming that they provide and for the quality of study leaders and clinicians they bring in from nationally known musicians to bishops of the church. Adults are given time to just unwind, but also time to deepen friendships and focus on the things that are most important in their lives. Families grow in faith together and make memories that they will carry with them forever.

Adventures and growth in faith isn’t just for kids anymore. Adults are seeking adventure and the development of new skills. Adults also seek to grow in their relationships with one another while unwinding from the stress and demands of daily life. 

Programs for those aged 50+ are receiving special attention as our churches are seeing growth in this demographic group.

Scholarships are available to assure that camp is available to everyone. You can find the Nonsummer Scholarship Application here!
