Our Story

Originally founded by members of several lower mainland Lutheran Congregations as a Summer Bible Camp for youth and families, Camp Luther has been a great summer tradition for over 250,000 individuals and families across the Fraser Valley. Throughout the past 65 years of ministry, Camp Luther staff have witnessed countless examples of how summer camp changes lives. It's what inspires our Society members, the Board and our management team to keep serving God through this ministry.


Although membership in the Camp Luther Association was originally limited to Lutheran Church members, all denominational lines have completely faded over the years. As the impact of the camp experience has widened, so also changes were made to the bylaws in order to welcome all Christians who value the power of camp as Society members. Operating as a non-profit Society, Camp Luther is a registered charity with the Canadian Revenue Agency, fully accredited by the B.C. Camping Association and is also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Camps. 


Since they opened their doors in 1950, Camp Luther has been a thriving camp where real relationships are formed through real love that will follow their campers into real life.

Our values

Values are enduring beliefs about what things out to be done or how they should be accomplished. Camp Luther is committed to encouraging the following values to all who are involved in its ministries:

  • Core Values

    Love & Acceptance: No matter who people are, we will strive to reach out to them with the unconditional Love of Jesus.

    Intentionality: If there is something that God has asked us to do, we will intentionally prioritize it in order to bridge the gap between great ideas and reality.

    Integrity: We desire to glorify God in everything we do, even when no one else is watching.

    Servant Leadership: We seek to earn the right to lead by serving as our Lord modeled for us.

    Fruits of the Spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness & self control. These will be the banner of Camp Luther. (Galatians 5:22)

    Obedience: To obey is better than sacrifice; when Jesus asks we respond with joyful obedience.

    Faith: Without God's gift of faith, it is impossible to please God. 

  • Mission statement

    Camp Luther exists to provide a safe and fun Camp environment where campers can experience and learn about God's love in a real way. 

  • statement of faith

    We believe:

    1. In One God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    2. That the Son, Jesus Christ, is truly God and truly man because he was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

    3. That by repentance and faith, our sins are forgiven through the death and resurrection of Christ.

    4. That Jesus is the only way to salvation.

    5. That the Holy Spirit lives in every believer.

    6. That we are saved by God's grace, His love and favor alone.

    7. That the Holy Scripture of the Old and New Testament is the Word of God and the final authority in all matters of life and doctrine.

    8. God demonstrates His grace through baptism, communion and the Bible.
