Thrivent Action Teams

It starts with an idea. Is there an unmet need at Camp Lutherhaven, Shoshone Mountain Retreat, or in the communities we serve that you want to impact? Camperships for kids? Bringing a Lutherhaven Day Camp to your church?

Why not bring a team of two or more friends or family together and take action, with a fundraiser, service project or special event for your camps!

If you or one of your friends are Thrivent members, Thrivent helps get your idea rolling. Thrivent Action Teams are easy. Apply to lead a team, and Thrivent sends you $250 in seed money for project expenses or other resources to put your team together and turn your idea into reality. Your $250 can pay for project expenses, buy building materials, pay for food for your team, launch a fundraiser, or help buy whatever you’ll need to make your project happen!

Some Ideas:

  • Do a campership fundraiser to help send kids from your neighborhood to camp.
  • buy materials to repair a home, build a wheelchair ramp, or replace a roof for someone in need as an Idaho Servant Adventures project.
  • Build new bunk-beds for a cabin.
  • Fund raise for a new computer for the camp office.
  • Put together a wood cutting and splitting party.
  • Send a volunteer crew to volunteer for Boots & Pearls or another camp fundraiser.
  • Put a Servant Weekend team together and help buy supplies.
  • Organize a camp work Saturday and your very own custom work project.
  • Bring your family plus another for a weekend at camp to work on the Retreat Center remodel.
  • Do a bake sale to send kids to camp.
  • Donate to our annual summer mission project to double our impact in our communities.
