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.
Gethsemane also sponsors a cabin at Camp Vermilion, Thompson Cabin. The church takes responsibility for furnishing and upkeep of the cabin throughout the years.
For more information on summer camp or Gethsemane’s camp involement, go to the Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry website (\www.vlmcamps.org/) or call the church office.
