Emily Richardson

 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 is my first year on staff! I am excited to be on staff this summer because I grew up going to Lutheridge and loved it! I can't wait to share the experience with campers of my own!


How have you seen God at work so far this summer? Through each of my campers I’ve been blessed with this summer! They have each been so great and I just know that God has great things in store for them! I can’t wait to see how things continue.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? This summer has shaped my faith in ways I could have never imagined. I am sad it is ending, but I am so happy to have been here and had such a wonderful experience.

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
