Talk with previous generations of Christians, and they’ll tell you: Bible Camp was an important part of their growth in faith. There is something about the world of nature, canoes, crafts, and campfires that grows your faith in Christ. We want our young people to grow in faith. Consequently, we want our young people to experience church camp through Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry, which oversees Camp Vermilion and Camp Hiawatha.
Confirmands are strongly encouraged to go to church camp one or more times. To help, a $200 scholarship is made available for every teenager and a friend from the Roy Carlson Youth Ministry Fund. Publicity will be distributed in February.
On August 5th and 6th, all confirmands will be attending a retreat at Camp Vermilion with confirmation groups from the other Quad Cities congregations. We will be doing various service projects around the camp. This event will help those who have not attended camp to become familiar with Camp Vermilion.
