Silly songs, campfires, and memories that last a lifetime are what summer camp is all about!
Good Shepherd attends summer camp at both Camp Luther (in northern Ohio along Lake Erie) and Lutheridge (in mountains of North Carolina). Although the settings and experiences differ, both offer folks the opportunity to learn to live in community and connect with God in an environment that is fun and relaxing.
Camp Luther is a week-long "family camp" program. The camp features daily chapel, songs, free-time, crafts, and other outdoor actvities. Set along the shore of Lake Erie, taking in sunsets is also highly encouraged. Camp Luther is part of Lutheran Outdoor Ministires in Ohio (LOMO), which offers other weekend retreats and experiences at other sites during the school year (such as the yearly Middle School Mix).
Not only does Lutheridge also offer a family camp experience for families, but it also offers age-specific camps for youth. This camp features daily vespers, songs, free-time, crafts, kids camp (a morning program for children in family camp), adult fellowship time, and adventures off-property in the Blue Ridge Mountains (such as hiking in the Pisgah National Forest or whitewater rafting on the Pigeon River). Lutheridge is located just outside of Asheville, NC. Youth also have the opportunity to catch a ride from Lutheridge to Lutherock, an off-site more primitive camping location within the Novusway network of camps.
