  • Weekly Welcome & Farewell

    Welcome to Lutherhill! Drop-off is from 3-5p on Sundays. When you arrive:
    • You and your camper will be directed to the Carby Chapel to complete the check-in. You will be guided by the Lutherhill staff through a registration check, medical check (don’t forget your meds!) and have the opportunity to stop by the Hillside Store (now located in the downstairs of the Chapel!).
    • You and your happy camper will then head to their assigned cabin where you will meet their counselor and help your camper get settled inside.
    • Once settled, Lutherhill has some fun activities for the campers to do while the rest of their cabinmates arrive!

    Parents are welcome to join us for Closing Worship at 2:00p at the Carby Chapel or you may pick-up your child when camp concludes at 3:00p. ** Closing Worship is at 1:30p and pick-up time is at 2p for Alpha Campers on Wednesdays. 
    When you arrive:
    • Our staff will guide you to your camper pick-up/parking location.
    • BRING YOUR PHOTO ID and make sure you are listed as the pickup person for your camper on your camper’s profile in Campwise.
    • If attending Closing Worship, head inside to the Carby Chapel and find a seat.
    • If picking-up only, stay at your pick-up location and watch for your camper.
    • Your camper will be packed and ready for you!
    o You will sign the Release Form and give your camper a big hug!
    o You will retrieve any prescription medications you dropped off at check-in.

    o You will load your camper’s luggage (hopefully they remembered all their socks).
    o You get to hear all about the BEST.WEEK.EVER. the whole ride home!

    DAY CAMPERS DROP-OFF & PICK-UP  |  Monday – Friday
    Drop-off for Onsite Day Campers is 8am and pick-up is between 5 and 5:15p.

    We know life exists beyond camp and the need may arise for you to pick-up your happy camper mid-week. This can make it hard for campers to fully engage in the camp community. If early pick-up is unavoidable, please contact us as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly.

Some campers will not write a response immediately and some may not write at all. Please be patient! Bunk1 offers an option to purchase Bunk Reply stationary once you register.

    PRO TIP! To increase the likely hood that your happy camper will send a note home, make sure to pack pre-addressed, stamped envelopes in their luggage.

  • Summer 2024 Theme | Daily Bread Project

    THEME: Lutherhill invites campers to join us on a faith journey of Real. Wonder. for Summer 2024! From the profound gift of curiosity and the celebration of joy to the transformative power of righteous anger and the solace found in moments of sadness, each day at camp will delve into the sacred connections between our experiences and our faith. The week culminates in the exploration of the amazing power of hope, reminding campers that God is present in every emotion, offering comfort, celebration, and courage. REAL. Wonder. awaits at Lutherhill this summer!

    DAILY BREAD: Each summer, Lutherhill joins forces with another organization to help our campers learn about God’s invitation to generous living through the Daily Bread project (our summer service project). This summer, Lutherhill is partnering with Tree 4 Hope.

    Tree 4 Hope is a non-profit organization committed to providing a bright future of long-term hope for children, elders, and their families in Guatemala and around the world through educational, health and mental wellness outreach programs. This summer our campers will learn more about Tree 4 Hope and the ministry they provide. Our Offsite Day Camp campers will create bookmarks to be sent to Tree 4 Hope, and our overnight residential campers will be packing supply backpacks for students that attend the Tree 4 Hope operated Hope Academy.
