Lutheridge started with an emphasis on the summer camp for youth. Faith formation and leadership development of young people are the primary reasons youth programs are vital and are thriving. There are many reasons that camp-based programs are important, but the mentoring of youth in small groups by college-aged counselors is certainly the most important. Providing this mentoring in a safe environment surrounded by unique adventure opportunities that often happen in God’s creation adds to the formula for passing on faith and developing leaders.
Scholarships are available to assure that camp is open to everyone. You can find the Non-summer Scholarship Application under Registration Information.
