Summer Camp Programs

Walcamp offers a fun, safe environment for youth and persons of all ages to build relationships with God and with others, to experience nature and to grow as an individual and as part of a community.

Experience the best of camp through games, archery, crafts, songs, swimming and more. Activities meet or exceed the safety standards outlined by the American Camping Association (ACA) and are supervised by trained staff members.


Make new friends, try new activities and challenge yourself physically, mentally and spiritually. Camp provides a safe place to ask questions and to explore truths seen in Creation and in the Bible.

Live in community with others, demonstrate teamwork and find opportunities to put your faith into action.

2019 Summer Theme

In Psalms and elsewhere, God is described as a Rock and a Refuge. Campers this summer will explore concrete, physical aspects of nature - rocks - to ground spiritual discussions about a present – yet invisible – God. Inspired by the 2019 LCMS National Youth Gathering: "Real. Present. God." Life Rock looks at the reality of this almighty, invisible God in our lives, and compares the different types of prayer we can use when communicating with Him.
