Staff Alumni Reunion and 70th Anniversary!

staff alumniCalling all past counselors, program staff, maintenance, cooks, first aid coordinators (medics), waterfront, media – all summer staff! You are cordially invited, with your families, to spend the entire weekend—July 19-21, 2019, at Camp Lutherhaven for a special reunion.

What’s the Deal

Believe it or not, Lutherhaven is celebrating 70 years in ministry in 2019 and one way we want to celebrate that is invite past staff back to enjoy an awesome weekend together.  We’ll have all the cool Camp activities you remember, fun and fellowship and then finish with the 70th Anniversary of Camp Lutherhaven on Sunday. Don’t miss this incredible time of reminiscing and making new memories. We want to see as many past staff as possible so mark the dates and spread the word. This is also a great time to make sure we have your latest contact information including email address.

The weekend will begin Friday at 7pm and go through Sunday at 2:30pm. Lodging will be available on Camp as space allows. Prices will be approximately $87 per adult and $52 per child. Children 5 and under are free. Make sure to bring your Capture the Flag attire for the historic old staff versus new staff match up!
