Next Steps for our community: Summer has begun!

Next steps for our community:
up and running

After the devastating Lodge fire and three weeks of diligently finding solutions, we are over the moon with excitement that we were able to welcome Northwest Regional Outdoor School back to our site on May 6th. We have a 40 foot-by-85 foot tent serving as our indoor meeting space, a temporary kitchen trailer, dishwashing trailer and freezer and refrigerator trailers.

Next steps for our community: Work Day

Workday was a success! Thank you to everyone who attended and did such great work. Because of your help, our lawns are mowed, our garden is ready for planting, our tent lights are up, our trails are raked, our brand new dishes are washed, and so much more. We could not have gotten all of this done without you, and we cannot thank you enough! 

Were you unable to make it to this Workday? Join us on Saturday, May 25th, for our second Workday of the Spring! We look forward to seeing you there!

next steps for our community: Recovery steps

Friends of Lutherwood,

We are sad to share that a fire destroyed the main lodge at Camp Lutherwood Oregon on the night of Friday, April 12. Thankfully, no one was in the building at the time of the fire and all guests and staff are safe and without injury. 

The Lodge building has been declared a total loss, and the fire was deemed accidental and electrical in nature

We have rented a temporary kitchen and are finding a large, sturdy and comfortable temporary tent for an indoor meeting space so we can continue serving our guests as soon as possible. Our current goal is to have outdoor schools back on our site by next Sunday.  

We also have every intention of hosting our 2019 summer camp programs and are currently taking registrations and applications for staff positions now. 

We have had so many people generously reach out with prayers, kind words and donations for which we are so grateful. 

To help us restore operations as quickly as possible, a generous donor has offered to match every gift made in the next 30 days (Until Ma 16) up to $100,000. You can make a donation now at the link above

If you would like to volunteer we would love to have you at our work day this Saturday, May 4, from 9AM-3PM. We have tasks for all ages and abilities and lunch will be included. Please RSVP by contacting us at 541-998-6444 or office@lutherwoodoregon.org

Thank you for all of the support you have given us during this difficult time. We are so grateful, and we cannot wait to continue serving you at Camp Lutherwood Oregon. 

Sincerely,

The Camp Lutherwood Oregon Staff
