Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp - Hillside, CO

Our Senior High youth have the opportunity to attend summer camp in Colorado.  This camp is nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range in SE Colorado, and offers a wide range of faith forming activities such as worship, service projects, daily Bible study and prayer, hiking, rafting, and much more!  For those interested in going, the deadline for registration is the middle of December of each year, except in National Youth Gathering years (2015, 2018, etc), where the Youth Gathering is the destination of our high school youth.  

Cross Trails Ministries - Kerville/Harper, TX

In our own Southwest Texas Synod of the ELCA, we have a couple of amazing camps!  Camp Chrysalis is tucked into the bluffs of the Hill Country outside of Kerville, TX.  Explore God in the outdoors of Texas!  Ebert Ranch Camp is a very exciting and unique camp experience for youth.  Just outside of Harper, TX, youth have the chance to camp cowboy style, exploring faith with others on a ranch, learning to ride horses, sleep out under the stars, and participating in many other cool activities.  Youth going into 2nd - 8th grade have the opportunity to attend these camps.  Registration deadlines for these summer camps are February 1st of the year attending.  Our confirmation students also attend a Jr. High Retreat in the Fall at Camp Chrysalis as part of their learning.
