The annual Kansas District Lutheran Valley Retreat (LVR) summer camp encourages youth to grow spiritually, stretch themselves by bonding with new friends, and step out of their comfort zone by participating in physical challenges. LVR programming is designed to help participants make new friends and identify more closely with the body of Christ as they recognize that the faithful body is not just their home congregation but also individuals from all over Kansas, meeting together as one larger visible church.
New for 2021! TWO SESSIONS (June 6-11 or July 18-23)
- Open to all incoming 9th grade students to graduating seniors.
- Price per camper is $450.
The theme for the 2021 camp is “Mountaintop Experience.” We will look at scripture passages and events that happened on mountains and note how they proclaim God’s glory and His saving nature. We will also look into the Psalms of Ascent as prayers and liturgical tools.
