Maddie Burke

 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 have had a wonderful time getting to know the other staff during orientation and I can't wait to get to know them better. I'm also excited to spend a summer outside with awesome campers!


How has God been at work in your summer so far? God has given me an amazing staff to work with and some awesome campers. I've had middle school, Summershine, and Lutherock general duty and learned a lot about patience and hard work. I'm looking forward to the rest of the summer.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? This summer I was blessed with the opportunity to work with an amazing staff who have given me unconditional love, support, and inspriation. I have learned more about patience and leadership as well as how to let go and be a kid.
