Mount Luther: A Place Set Apart
Dear Parents, Campers and Friends,
Welcome to Camp Mount Luther! We invite you to join us for a great opportunity to share in the love and joy of God’s family. We are a ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s Upper Susquehanna Synod and have a partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania. Located on 400 acres of forests outside of Mifflinburg, our site consists of cabins, worship sites, fields, trails, campsites, and a pool. It is an excellent setting for growth and renewal as you experience God in the beauty of creation.
Our program is different from other camps because our goal is to help you grow in your faith. We believe that faith is caught, not taught, so we spend time Gathering and Reflecting On God’s Word through readings, songs, games and demonstrations. Our GROW Time this summer is based on the theme “Living in God’s Time.” God hallowed time by entering into human history through Jesus. As we immerse ourselves in the story of Jesus through the church year, we learn how to reflect Jesus in the world. Each day at camp this summer, we will focus on a different season of the church year and explore how the season helps us live in holy time, even in the midst of a secular culture. We’ll explore the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost. GROW Time is very unique when held in the beauty and magic of God's creation. In fact, you’ll get to spend a lot of time outdoors, learning more about nature. Camp is also a place where you get away from the distraction of television, video games, cell phones, the internet, and technology.
Camp Mount Luther is accredited by the American Camp Association. This means that we meet the highest standards of the camping industry and provide a safe emotional and physical experience for our participants. Our summer staff is carefully chosen and well-trained to provide excellent Christian role models for youth. They help campers to learn and discover new things while singing silly songs, acting in outrageous skits, and showing God’s love in our intentional Christian community. We also rely on many volunteers during the summer program. Pastors serve as chaplains and special camp leaders; registered nurses and doctors staff our health office; and lifeguards provide guidance at our waterfront.
Please look through this brochure to learn more about our traditional, specialty, and trip camps for you and your family. We have something for everyone! If you are a returning camper, I hope you’ll consider bringing a friend who has never been to camp. I hope to see you this summer at Mount Luther!
Chad Hershberger, Executive Director
