Our 71st Lutherhaven Summer!

Quality, Safe, Christian Camps for All Ages!

For over seventy years tens of thousands of kids & families have placed camp at Lutherhaven in beautiful north Idaho at the center of their summertime plans! They’ve discovered (and rediscovered) safe, unforgettable fun; meaningful challenges; and positive relationships – surrounded by blue lakes, green trees, majestic mountains, rushing rivers, awesome friends and significant mentors!

Young people today need time at camp, more than ever!

Lutherhaven gives kids…

  • Time outdoors in safe, unplugged programs, outdoor recreation, games and activities.
  • Time to develop deep, life-changing faith and values, build self-confidence and gain new skills.
  • Time to develop meaningful relationships with positive peers and trained young adult role models.

Lutherhaven offers age-specific activities; individualized choices; caring staff leaders; and engaging programs encouraging faith formation, creativity, positive decision-making and servant leadership in your child – led by our team of Program Directors specializing in early childhood, elementary, young adolescent and high school outdoor programming.

Include Lutherhaven in your family’s summer schedule! As you do, your camper will discover their true worth and potential; gain confidence through positive friendships, new life skills and growing passions; and most of all, deepen their faith in God—centered in the love of Jesus!

See you this summer!
