Hilary Thoemke

 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.

 I have been on staff for 2 years.  I am excited to be on staff this summer because this is my favorite place.  I've had such great experiences at camp and I want to be a part of making this a great experence for someone else.


How have you seen God at work so far this summer? God has made me a stronger leader and has given me the opportunity to share my faith with campers so that their faith will grow.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? This summer has taught me to be a more patient person and to love everyone despite our flaws, because we are all the same in God’s eyes.

To provide Hilary 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
