Ready for Summer 2022?
We are planning and preparing for Summer 2022 and can’t wait to welcome happy campers back to the Hill! Are you ready to have YOUR Best.Week.Ever. at Lutherhill?
Because God calls us to be in community, we structure camp to build relationships through the “village system.”
Each camper lives in a cabin with a group of up to 12 other children of his/her age, and each cabin is paired with one or two other cabins to make a village. Throughout the week, this “village” participates in all activities together, working together, playing together, and learning to make decisions as a community.

What more is there to say? Our most nostalgic past time.
We call this All Camp, where all the villages come together each evening to participate in camp-wide games.
Daily Bread Project
With the Lord’s Prayer we ask God to ‘give us this day our daily bread’. God invites us to share what we have with others. Through the Daily Bread Project we learn more about the needs in the world and God’s invitation for us to love our neighbors.
Challenge your cabin to a game! Like dodgeball, but played in an arena by rolling a ball at another player and getting them out by hitting their legs. Gaga Ball can be played in a free-for-all or cabin against cabin.
