Ryan Crofts

 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'm just super pumped to share my love for God's creation with campers for a second summer. I am really excited to show them that you can be close to God out in nature.


How has God been at work in your summer so far? It's been great at camp so far. I've seen God take kids who have never experienced his creation and provide this with life changing trips. From rock-climbing to white water rafting every week kids have conquered their fears and loved every minute of it.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? It has helped me to find areas in my life of pure joy. I love taking campers out into nature, seeing them challenge themselves, and coming out on top. I consider myself truly blessed to have been a part of staff again this summer.

To provide Ryan 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
