Brandon Dressen

 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 Lutheridge near Asheville, North Carolina.  My summer will be spent witnessing my faith to over 2,000 children and youth who come to camp to grow in their faith and have fun in a very special intentional Christian Community.

This summer I'll be a Lutheroad Area Director as well as the Summershine Area Director.  As this summer begins I am excited about coming back HOME!  lutheridge is the one place that keeps me calm all the time.  I am all at peace and have little stress and worry about what will happen next.  Camp allows us to feel closest to the kingdom of God with little distraction.  I cannot wait to see what God has in store for all of us this summer.


How have you seen God at work so far this summer?  God has been reminding me how to be a kid again, sometimes we can be so wrapped up in being an adult that we forget to take a moment just have fun.

How has this summer experience impacted your life? This summer has shown me I can make decisions on my own. My life will be different in a way that I can be intentional about putting God at the forefront.

To provide Brandon 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
