A SUMMER CAMP & Retreat centre close to home

Camp Luther is located in the Fraser Valley on Hatzic Lake. We are a short drive away from Mission and just over an hour from Vancouver. Camp Luther has been a popular retreat destination for churches, youth groups, music groups, crafting groups, and special events for many years. Camp Luther is known for its flexibility to meet diverse needs, its friendly staff and its great food.  We have three great options for your group and it's easy to book our Camp Retreat Centre and other facilities.

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.


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.

now is the time

After much hard work and prayer, the membership has voted unanimously

that Now is the Time to move forward with a capital campaign to raise funds

to renovate and expand the Main Building (Chapel, Dining Hall, and Kitchen) and

upgrade the Gym! This is the biggest initiative in the history of Camp Luther

and we are so excited for this next step in our journey. If you're interested in

Project overview

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. 


Camp Luther actually has two distinct properties: the summer camp, located on seven acres of Lakefront property on Hatzic Island in Mission, and a rustic Chalet property located on Mt Seymour. These camp properties are used year-round for summer camps, retreat programs and guest group rentals.

Camp Luther has experienced significant growth over the past few years in both the number of summer campers and the number of guest groups using the facilities at other times of the year.

The increase in the total number of people coming to Camp Luther put a strain on existing facilities that are now being pushed beyond capacity.

At a crossroadS: Where do we go from here?

With a vision to further the mission of reaching people for Christ, Camp Luther finds itself at a crossroads. When the bunks are full, and our key facilities stretched beyond a reasonable capacity, what should we do? Should we attempt to maintain current operation levels going into an accelerated maintenance mode, or do we go forward in faith to update and expand our facilities, to better meet our current needs and accommodate more people?

THe plan to renovate and grow

After much hard work and prayer, the membership has voted unanimously that Now is the Time to move forward with a capital campaign to raise funds to renovate and expand the Main Building (Chapel, Dining Hall, and Kitchen) and upgrade the Gym! This is the biggest initiative in the history of Camp Luther and we are so excited for this next step in our journey.
