Wheels For Camp

We know 16-wheelers won’t work for carrying campers on outings or Lutheroad Day Camp teams to communities across the Southeastern US this summer! But mini-vans, (12 or 15 passenger vans), 24-passenger or larger church buses are exactly what we need as our NovusWay ministry sites prepare for a full Summer Camp 2022 schedule.

As your congregation grows its way back to a full ministry schedule of in-person activities again, do you have an “under-used” church vehicle parked somewhere right now that you might loan to one of our sites for Summer Camp 2022?  Our summer camp season begins June 5 for most sites and ends by August 6 everywhere.

As you know, prices have skyrocketed for anything “vehicle-related”, from renting to buying (new or used).  Renting our summer vehicle fleet this year as we’ve done through the years, will exceed our careful budget planning by thousands of dollars.  We won’t raise camper fees, so we’re asking for your help.  We are happy to work with your congregation in whatever way is best for you.  We will gladly pay to rent your vehicle; accept your “no-charge” loan of your vehicle and provide you with a charitable gift-in-kind for its use; or gratefully accept the gift of a vehicle you no longer need and want to see put to God’s work again.  While the vehicle is with us at NovusWay, it’s fully covered by our insurance and maintained at our expense.

Vehicles are needed for Summer Camp and Lutheroad at all four sites: Lutheridge, Lutherock, Luther Springs and Lutheranch.  If you’re open to the possibility of helping in some way at any one of our sites, contact Pastor Jan Setzler at jsetzler@novusway.org or call 864-942-2974
