Here’s a little more about these four camps…

Located in Arden, NC, just outside Asheville, Camp Lutheridge provides a diversity of experiences, from first-time campers in first and second grade to high school campers hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Lutheridge is primarily an overnight residential camp with 80+ summer staff. Counselors also get the opportunity to travel around the southeast, leading day camps at local congregations. Lutheridge also features Outdoor Adventure Programs where counselors lead exciting and challenging experiences from rafting to zip lines to hiking.

Located in Newland, NC, thirty minutes from Boone, Camp Lutherock is focused on fun and challenging outdoor experiences for campers. Counselors get the opportunity to lead campers on beautiful hikes to the awe-inspiring views on camp, take campers rock climbing, and rafting on world-class rapids. And this incredible natural setting makes an excellent place to share and form faith in campers. All of Lutherock’s programs are Outdoor Adventure Programs, so counselors will be trained in the needed skills caring for campers in those settings. Counselors at Lutherock will also have opportunities to work at Lutheridge. Click here to learn more and apply!

Located in Hawthorne, FL, 20 minutes east of Gainsville, Luther Springs offers counselors an opportunity to gain leadership skills for their life and share them with their campers. This lakeside camp invites campers from 1st grade through high school to have an incredible on-camp experience, including crafts, Bible study, games, and campfires. Special camps include the opportunity to be a counselor for campers from migrant families and our popular Night  Gators camp that flips the campers’ day. Counselors also get the chance to travel around Florida, leading day camps at local congregations. At Luther Springs this summer, you will make a difference in the lives of campers, and the experience will change yours forever. Click here to learn more and apply!

As NovusWay’s newest camp, Lutheranch brings new and exciting opportunities for your counselor experience. Located an hour west of Atlanta, the centerpiece of Lutheranch is the equestrian program that welcomes campers into extraordinary experiences with horses and creates community. As a counselor, you will share in this fun while creating faith forming community. Campers and counselors will plan each day together to enjoy all that the ranch has to offer from cookouts to archery to boating and fishing. Lutheranch also offers an Outdoor Adventure Program and one week of an on-site horse camp day camp. Lutheranch staff will spend part of their summer at Lutheridge as well.

Camp & Covid-19

We know that there will be many questions about what camp will look like for you as a counselor in 2021. Will you need to wear a mask? Will we be able to sing camp songs? Will we be able to do group activities and play games together? Will we have to stay in a bubble on camp? In any case, we will continue to follow the latest guidance and safety protocols from the CDC and the American Camp Association. We will keep you updated regularly on what that will look like for you and our summer staff. You can expect monthly updates leading up to summer camp beginning in January 2021. Look for the most up to date information on our health guidelines and precautions in this space and on your site’s staff page.
