Register Now for Summer Camp at Mount Luther

— MIFFLINBURG — Camp Mount Luther is gearing up for its summer camping season for 2014 and is accepting registrations for all programs until they are filled. Campers who register before April 1 will receive a discount on their camp fee.

This year’s camping season will begin on June 15, with three new program offerings and a returning favorite. Elementary-aged campers will enjoy a wacky day camp week as they’ll all suggest crazy ideas and each day randomly pick one to celebrate. Pond Pals will spend extra time at our pond, fishing, canoeing, doing pond studies and learning more about creation. Dirt Warriors can learn the value of service and help the camp out at the same time in this new program offering. High Adventure Quest is back on the schedule, when campers live on an island in the Susquehanna River, learn about kayaking, and do the high ropes course at Bloomsburg University.

Other new programs this year include Wet and Wild Day Camp, featuring extra water activities in addition to the normal camp stuff; Bugs, Mud, and God when we will see God in the mud and bugs, in the trees and streams; and Hobby and Sports will be a week where you will have time to engage in your favorite hobby or play some sports. Base Camp is a week for campers who come and NOT go on an overnight camping trip but rather sleep in their cabins every night. This camp has all the basics of outdoor ministry, plus this year we are asking you to bring costumes for our “Cartoon Character Week.” Other new offerings this summer include Pedal, Pack, and Paddle Light and SURE Outpost.

Camp Mount Luther again will partner with the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania for several weeks. The theme this year for our joint senior high X-Teen Camp is “Colors of the Rainbow.” Campers will participate in service work during the weekend of this 10 day experience. Our joint elementary and junior high camp, BASIC (Brothers and Sisters In Christ) will feature a holiday celebration each day of that week.

Resident and Day Camps run from mid-June until Aug. 9. There are programs for all ages from kindergarten to senior high, adults, and families. Most sessions run for one week, but there are also half-week, day-only, and 10 day sessions. For more information on this summer’s programs, call the camp office at (570) 922-1587 or visit the camp’s website at

This year’s theme at Mount Luther is “Living in God’s Time.” A day of fun will be held from 2:45 to 8 p.m. at Camp Mount Luther. Come for a fun day, rain or shine, with activities for all ages. Learn about our summer program or just spend a day at camp with your family. Meet the summer staff, tour the facilities, take a hike, swim in the pool, eat a meal, attend a worship service, and more. More details are available on the website.
