Welcome, Sojo!

Hello! My name is Sojo, and I’m thrilled to join the Camp Luther full-time staff as Program and Communications Manager! I call the very small town of Clear Lake, Wisconsin my hometown, but am enjoying settling into my new home in the Northwoods.

When someone asks me how I’ve come to work at Camp or how long I’ve been working here, I have to laugh a little. My journey here is full of twists and turns, and different positions, but I can see God working in all of it. As I grew up, Camp Luther had a clear impact on my social and spiritual life as I participated in youth camps, IMPACT, and youth retreats. Some of my biggest “aha” faith moments happened during Camp Luther programming.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Superior with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication in May 2014. During the summer of 2015 I served as Camp Luther’s Congregational Day Camp Coordinator. That fall I continued at camp, but in the position of Program Assistant. In April 2016, I came back over the little bridge, this time as Interim Program Director and worked with our summer special programs. This fall I was more than delighted to come back once more in my current position.

One of the great things about my job is that I not only get to work hands on with programming and guests of camp, but I also have the privilege of sharing the Camp Luther Story with everyone!
