"That which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, and our own hands have touched - THIS we declare to you concerning the Word of Life." 1 John 1:1


Walcamp Online Chapels - "The Old Rugged Stump"

Begining in Spring 2020, Walcamp's team began to post weekly chapel messages to our YouTube channel. These "Online Chapels" follow a format similar to the campfire devotions offered to our summer campers, outdoor education groups and on-site retreats. Typically they include:

  • Welcome and Verse of the Day
  • 2-3 Songs
  • A devotion/meditation and prayer
  • 1-2 more songs

For the 2020-2021 school year, Walcamp's "Mufasa" continues to post weekly chapels. Begining in Genesis (in August), each week tells a new story from the Old Testament (with a short break during Advent/Christmas) to share with viewers both the relvence and the "cool factor" these books still hold for us, even today in modern 2021. The series is designed for children to watch at home with their families, and for teachers who want to include Bible Encounter times in school for their students. They do not have to be watched in order.

Whether you watch one episode or the entire series, we pray that you are blessed by these stories and songs.


Chapel Visits on Location

Walcamp serves over a dozen of our supporting LCMS Lutheran schools in Chicago and around northern Illinois by providing a team member to visit their school and lead the students in a "campfire-style" chapel service. These Chapels usually last around 30 minutes to allow time for school faculty to lead students in their daily pledges and to give announcements or student awards.


Please note: Due to COVID, Walcamp has currently suspended its in-person chapel services. We hope you will take advantage of our new Online Chapel series and join us in praying for an end to the pandemic.
