Our Programs > Youth > Lutheridge

Lutheridge, Lutherock, Luther Springs, and Lutheranch all started with an emphasis on summer camp for youth.  Faith formation and leadership development of youth are the primary reasons youth programs are still so vital and are thriving.  There are many reasons that camp-based programs are so important, but the mentoring of youth in small groups by college-aged counselors is certainly the most important.  Providing this mentoring in a safe environment surrounded by unique adventure opportunities that often happen in God’s creation adds to the formula for passing on faith and developing leaders.  Through a day camp program, we can even bring the program to your church. 

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

Opportunities for Youth to Get Inspired at Lutheridge




Four weekends - SEVEN retreats. Two separate retreats each weekend - except November. Our unique curriculum uses experiential learning to leave lasting lessons. Lutheridge staff provide supervision for campers, staying in cabins with them and sharing their faithful witness. Campers can come alone or with a group. Lessons are geared to middle school, but 5th grade through high school youth are welcome to attend (Campers will be placed in cabin groups with those close to their own age). Adult leaders are welcome and encouraged to participate, but not required to attend. Each camper creates a “witness” to share what they have learned with those back home. Pastors Tim and Mary Canniff-Kuhn provide program design and oversight, with involvement from other leaders. Adult Leaders for Faith Alive! are welcome to register and participate in ALL program sessions. Cost for an adult who is a FULL participant (must select a retreat) is $97 per adult. Limited adult housing is available on some weekends (register early). Adults may also register as a full participant, but stay off-site for $45 per adult. Adults who drop off campers and wish to stay on camp, but not participate in the program may arrange meals and housing, if available, at regular rates by contacting our offices.
