Pastors & Youth Leader’s Guide to Confirmation Camp 2017!
2017 Confirmation Camp Dates: June 25-30 and July 23-28
We are so excited to have you and your confirmation students join us for Confirmation Camp 2017! Whether this is your first experience or you are a seasoned veteran, we are anticipating your arrival and look forward to providing a quality week for your group. Confirmation Camp allows ample group time for your confirmation curriculum. Afternoons and evenings are spent in cabin groups participating in a quality program including crafts, creation, and games.
Update your students & families:
- Direct them to lutherwoodoregon.org/register and encourage them to register early! This is important because it includes the Health Form and waivers that individual families should fill out.
Even if you’re paying as a group, individual families should register and choose the “Send a check” option.
- Packing list and general camp information will be included in our Welcome Packet.
What to expect from Confirmation Camp:
ScheduleConfirmation groups will meet from after breakfast until lunch with a break for morning worship each day (Monday through Friday). You are responsible for planning this time for your group. If you would like to have your group participate in GICs (Group Initiative Course), please complete the form so we can be prepared for your group and plan our staffing for the week.
Add On an AdventureEnjoy time adventuring away one afternoon for your confirmation group!! For only $15 per person, you can choose to spend an afternoon canoeing at Fern Ridge Reservoir or Triangle Lake. Your campers must be registered before June 18, 2016 as the Afternoon Adventures will not be available to those who register too late.
Housing and Cost for LeadersOne adult is welcome at no cost for every five paying campers from your group. Leaders with less than five campers or additional leaders are $50 for the week to cover food and housing costs. All leaders are required to register, even if you are not paying the $50. Leaders will be housed with other leaders and not with campers.
Be thinking aheadWe love for you to be involved in all aspects of your week at camp, so be prepared to join various camp activities! You are invited to share devotions at our staff meetings during your stay at camp (sign up at our Sunday Leader Meeting). And don’t forget about Hospitality Night for all our Confirmation leaders during the week!
Help our Confirmation Camp program grow! If you have any colleagues whose Confirmation group could benefit from Camp Lutherwood Oregon’s summer program, please tell them about your great camp experience. Pass along this information and encourage them to join us at Camp Lutherwood Oregon this summer!
