Registration & FAQ

Camp Lutherwood Oregon believes all kids should have the opportunity to attend camp. We know camp families have differing abilities to pay, so we offer a voluntary three-tiered pricing program to better meet all financial needs. Since you know your family’s financial situation better than we do, you self-select the rate you can afford!

 Reduced pricing doesn’t change the quality camp experience your child receives!

Having multiple payment options simply shows you the true cost of Camp Lutherwood Oregon programming and gives you the ability to decide how much you can pay toward camp. The level you choose is up to you. Consider selecting the highest price you can afford…it helps more kids come to camp!

Tier 1: Most accurately reflects the “true cost” of camp.

Tier 2: Slightly subsidized for families needing some support to make camp affordable.

Tier 3: Subsidized rate through fundraising, special events, and contributions from camp supporters. Choose this rate if you are applying for additional Campership support from Camp Lutherwood Oregon or a 3rd party organization is covering your cost of camp.

Payment: You may pay in full with your registration, pay the minimum $75 deposit, or pay something in between. If you choose to not pay in full when you register, you may log back in anytime to make payments prior to the start of camp.

Payment Plan: We offer an optional automatic payment plan directly from your credit or debit card, either a one-time charge for your camp balance or monthly installments prior to the start of camp! In order to enroll in a payment plan, select “Other payment options” when checking out.

Camp does allow parents/guardians to send emails to their camper. Specific instructions will be given to you during registration about how best to use this service. We highly encourage you to send letters and care packages by snail mail too! Please note that our mail delivery times vary each day, and we do our best to make sure campers receive anything that is sent. Emails and snail mail are usually delivered to the campers during dinner time each night.

Please send all packages and snail mail to: 22960 HWY 36 | Cheshire, OR 97419

Check-in for partial week and week-long camps is 3:00-5:00PM on Sundays all summer. When you arrive, there will be Lutherwood staff there to help guide you through our check-in process, including help carrying items to cabins! Plan on at least 30 minutes for check-in. Be sure you have all necessary forms submitted prior to registration to make the process go more quickly.

Check-out for week-long camps is on Fridays, and we invite you to come to the Closing Campfire which begins at 1:30PM. This is a great chance to hear what the campers, along with their whole cabin, say about their week of camp. Closing Campfire will end around 2:00PM, and the campers are able to leave after the parent/guardian, or authorized pick-up person has completed the check-out process.

Check-out for partial week camps is on Tuesdays, and we invite you to come to the which begins at 1:30PM, with a 2:00PM departure time.

After Camp

 

Campers will have the chance to evaluate their week of camp before the check out process begins. Parents/Guardians will be sent a follow up email with a survey where you can further share how your campers experience was at camp. This is a great time to talk to your camper about things they tried, how they liked the food, or something new they learned. We hope that each person who walks across our bridge has an empowering experience, and would encourage you to engage with your camper or family about their time at camp. They may ask to pray before meals, or you might catch them singing and dancing to one of the camp songs! These are good indicators that your camper had a great time at camp.

Sometimes, campers can struggle with their week away from home. We are always looking for feedback for how to improve our programming and overall services. Please feel free to contact us with comments or concerns both good and bad!
