Athena Bless

 You have a chance to be part of what I am confident will be a life-changing summer for me.  I have the privilege of being selected to serve on the summer staff at Lutherock near Boone, North Carolina.  My summer will be spent witnessing my faith to over 700 children and youth who come to camp to grow in their faith and have fun in a very special intentional Christian Community.

 I have been on staff for 3 years.  I am excited to be on staff this summer because I love being here at camp and being surrounded by the beauty of God's creation here on the mountain.


How have you seen God at work so far this summer? I have seen God at work through the beauty of this place and through my campers who have grown in their faith.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? This summer has impacted my life because it has brought me closer to God. Through working with servant groups I have seen campers become servants of God and it has made me strive to be a better servant.

To provide Athena with salary, room, board, and training, it costs over $2555 for the summer. We know this is worth it as it is the summer staff that have the greatest impact on the campers. We are inviting you to invest in their training. By investing in them, we will send you updates and post updates on this webpage about the ministry they are involved in and how it is impacting their life. Your investment in them frees other funds to provide scholarships and improve the program equipment and facilities.The cost of $2,555 breaks down as follows:

  • $555 provides for 1 counselor's training ($47,175 total cost)
  • $2000 provides for 1 counselor's salary
