July 24-29, 2022 – Luther Springs
Youth will spend the week sharing God’s immeasurable love by serving others, enjoying new friends and old, and having limitless fun!
Our curriculum for the week is based on the ELCA Youth Gathering curriculum. Ephesians 3:18-19 (CEV): I pray that you and all of God’s people will understand what is called wide or long or high or deep. I want you to know all about Christ’s love, although it is too wonderful to be measured. Then your lives will be filled with all that God is.
What will our week look like?
Sunday: Arrive late afternoon, check in, eat dinner and enjoy camp wide games.
Monday: Tubing at Ichetucknee Springs then return to camp for team building and other camp activities.
Tuesday: Spend the day immersed in the migrant farmworker ministry at Rez House, Dade City. Students will choose between helping in the pre-school; leading games/activities for elementary children; sorting food and donations; and property maintenance (painting, yard work, etc.). Rez House will provide a delicious lunch and we will return to Luther Springs for dinner and camp-wide games.
Wednesday: Work with social service agencies in the Hawthorne and Gainesville area. We will return to camp mid-afternoon to cool off in the pool and enjoy other camp activities.
Thursday: Beach Day! Off to Anastasia State Park for a day of swimming, paddle boarding, and kayaking. We will enjoy a picnic lunch and cook dinner over the fire, closing with worship at sunset before returning to Luther Springs.
Friday: Wrap up, closing circle, and depart after lunch. Some groups have indicated they will head to Orlando to enjoy some theme park fun after camp ends.
