Evan Fitzsimmons

 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.

I have been on staff for 2 years. I am excited to be on staff this summer because I look forward to being a leader, improving myself as a counselor, and rekindling my faith.


How have you seen God at work so far this summer? I understand why I am called to be a counselor. I somewhat understand the concept of religion, Christianity and faith. I am living out a Christian lifestyle.  

How has this summer experience impacted your life? I have grown so much in my faith. I have also seen more teaching gifts I want to develop for my major. I have also seen my work through my campers' eyes and I feel I have received a sense of where my life is headed.

To provide Evan 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
