We want every camper and person who comes to our site feel welcomed and relaxed. To help you, your camper, or group prepare for your time at camp, here are a few tips and things to keep in mind!
Remember to label items with your name. Try to limit your belongings to one piece of luggage, plus a bedroll and backpack.

Check-in for camp is open from 2 to 4 PM on Sunday. When you arrive, Lutherwood staff will guide you through our check-in process! We are using a drive-through system that allows parents and guardians to remain in their vehicles, ensuring physical distancing for COVID-19 prevention. Remember to bring proof of vaccination, COVID-19 test results, and other necessary forms. Check our COVID-19 guidelines to make sure you have everything!
Check-out for camp is at 3 PM on Thursday. A drive-up check-out process will ensure distancing and that campers leave with their authorized pick-up person.
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!
