Garrett Pedersen

 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.

This is my first year on staff!  I am excited to teach my campers how to become high climbing, high adventuristic mountain men!


How have you seen God at work so far this summer? I see God in many aspects of camp, through nature, songs, fellowship and friends. But the place I have seen God most easily is through the encouragement and support of the Lutherock family. When I first climbed the tower or the face of Cross Rock, my fellow comrades helped me overcome my phobia of heights with an amazing reward of a sense of accomplishment and stunning views.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? I came into this summer expecting to be a voice of the gospel to children of all ages. I never expected them to be the same thing for me.

To provide Garrett 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
