It began with a vision that every child in the North Wisconsin District should have the opportunity to go to camp. District and camp leaders knew from decades of summer camp ministry that the Camp Luther experience has a significant impact in the faith development of children fortunate enough to attend. A vision began to take shape. What if, through the assistance of others who believe in the mission of Camp Luther, we could provide the opportunity for hundreds of children to attend each summer at no cost to their family? Now 10 years later, through your support and prayers, more than 2000 children have come to Camp Luther through Every Kid to Camp!
The vision of Every Kid to Camp has grown as congregations and individuals have used the ministry to reach out to those in their communities who don’t know Christ. Each year 300 children come to Camp Luther for the very first time at no cost to their family. We are careful not to refer to Every Kid to Camp as ‘free.” It’s a gift of camp made possible through the generous support of those who love children and value the mission of Camp Luther.
We invite you to support this important ministry through your prayers and gifts. Your support will help to send a child to camp and the impact of that experience can change their life! Visit campluther.com/donate to give to Every Kid to Camp. Or contact Shelly “Indigo” Karolus, Director of Donor Relations for information about the “Lee Belmas Honorary Every Kid to Camp Endowment Fund.” Lee was instrumental in the development of the Every Kid to Camp program and remains a champion of this ministry to children and their families.
Do you know a child who hasn't been to camp yet? You can help send that child to camp this summer. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with child and parent’s names and contact information and we will send them an Every Kid to Camp certificate. Let’s send 300 kids to camp this summer for the very first time!
