 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 work at Lutheridge this summer because this is a GREAT job to have!  Pastor Tim and Pastor Mary are excellent bosses and I feel priviledged to work for them.  I have not only learned about the day-to-day flow of camp, but I have also gotten several faith-based questions of my own answered.  My orientation leaders and friends are really nice and good to talk to.  I feel very prepared for the incoming campers and I hope this is a fun, safe, and absolutely awesome summer! 

--Peace, Natalie Cook


How has this summer experience impacted your life? From this summer, I feel like a braver song leader and a better public speaker. My favorite part of every week was leading cabin vespers (night worship) in the evening.

To provide Natalie 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
