Take part in Bible Studies, send the kids to age appropriate programming options just for them, relax on the beach, play games, choose your fun activities throughout the day, watch a beautiful Lake Erie sunset, and close each day around the campfire. Come bring your family and reconnect with this great summer vacation!

We have family camp weeks that designed for specific groups, that however does not limit those weeks to solely those groups of people. Anyone is welcome to register for any of the weeks.

Here is a brief description for each week:

Inclusion Week: Everyone is welcome! A mashup of our traditional Family Camp with our Agape Camp. This week is for all families with all abilities. Even though all families are welcome to attend, we are extending the invitation to families that have individuals with developmental disabilities. Throughout the week we will have activities and programming that are specific to bringing all families and agape campers (adults that have developmental disabilities) together, from having beach party together to singing songs at campfire together.

Ohio Week: A tradition of bringing families from the Ohio region and out of state families all together in one place. If you and your family are not from New York and want a small vacation where you escape your day-to-day life, then this is a perfect opportunity. This week usually fills up really fast with families that have been coming for many years.

Lutheran Catechetical Week: If the title of this camp excites you, then this is a perfect summer vacation! Think of it as a confirmation camp for all ages, with liturgical worship and solid preaching, but packed with lots of outdoor and indoor fun too! With two plenary sessions and adult and youth Bible studies, this camp is not only open to families but singles and couples of all ages. This year the teaching will be led by attending pastors and seminary professors (CLTS), as well as Lutherans in Africa (LST). Make sure to bring your Bibles and LSB hymnals!
