Campfirmation is a partnership between LUTHERIDGE and youth groups of congregations called CLUSTERS. Campers stay in cabins with other middle school youth and a college-age counselor. Many counselors have a history with Lutheridge from their camper days and are well trained, responsible, and excellent role models of Jesus’ love. Pastors or other congregation leaders plan, lead, and participate in daily teaching sessions. Leaders are welcome to join the youth and their counselors in activi- ties such as swimming, crafts, games, skits, singing, campfires, hikes, and an off-site outing. So much faith learning happens during this week! Lasting relationships among adults and youth are forged as well. Here are pictures from Emmanuel Lutherans Confirmands week at Campfirmation!
