Camp Day welcomes more than 200 counselors

On May 30, Luther Seminary hosted around 225 camp counselors at Luther Seminary for our fifth annual Camp Day. Most of the counselors are college students who will be working at the following Lutheran Bible camps this summer: Luther Dell in Remer, Minn.; Luther Point in Grantsburg, Wis.; Camp Wapogasset in Amery, Wis.; Ox Lake in Amery, Wis.; and the camps of Green Lake Lutheran Ministries (Green Lake, Shores of St. Andrew and Camp House) in Spicer, Minn. The event was led by Luther Seminary faculty, Admissions staff and students and included lectures, workshops and more.

Since 2009, this event has brought more than 1,000 college-age camp counselors to the seminary for a day of education and training to help prepare them for their various leadership roles at camp while offering a reflective setting to open their imaginations about what it means to be a Christian public leader in our world today. Camp Day is just one example of the seminary's ongoing partnership with outdoor ministries throughout the Midwest and beyond.
