Emily Oswalt

 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 year I'll be a craft director on senior staff.  I am most excited for the opportunity to grow in my spiritual leadership.  I've had leadership roles before but most did not have an obvious faith component.  I think it is a great way to help me in my faith journey as well as the faith of those I am being a role model to.


How have you seen God at work so far this summer?  Everywhere!!  He is in the kids fellow counselors, and other staff.  He is giving me new opportunities and guiding me through them.

To provide Emily 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
