Summer Ministry Team

In the summer, about 20 college students serve as counselors and program staff and go through two weeks of intense training.   Our Summer Ministry Team consists of young men and women (age 18 and older) who are trained to deliver the Mount Luther program.  Many of our staff are former campers and members of area churches.  Members of this team need not be Lutheran in faith, but must possess a personal commitment to Jesus Christ, a desire to work in the outdoors and a sound sense of responsibility.  If you or someone you know is 18 years of age or older, believes in the mission of Mount Luther and is willing to give 10 weeks of the summer to the camp, please contact the camp office.  Pastors live in camp each week to assist in worship and Bible study. Nurses and other program volunteers help, too.
