At Camp Luther we know the impact and power of camp and we feel it is important to give everyone the opportunity to paddle and come to camp! We do not want finances to be the reason that some children and families don't get to experience camp.
There are two ways to get help to attend summer camp:
1. UGM - Our camp also has an established relationship with Union Gospel Mission (UGM), who work alongside to provide financial assistance. UGM has helped many campers get to Camp Luther for many years and has been a blessing for us to be a part of their work. Their sponsorship opportunities are for children and youth ages 6-18 and for families. Click here for more information about their sponsorship.
2. Green Paddle Campaign - Through our Green Paddle Campaign (our campership fund), donor’s give to help others get to camp. Our camperships are available to families based on the need and our fund availability.
Check below for further information on our Green Paddle Campaign.
Our Green Paddle Campaign is our Campership Fund and we need your help!
First off - thank you. Thank you for understanding the value and power of camp. We know that God changes lives through this place and we thank you for being a part of that!
Secondly, we wanted to share with you about our campership initiative called “The Green Paddle Campaign”; we believe every kid should have the opportunity to paddle. Our goal is to help get 100 kids to camp, who otherwise wouldn’t have had the chance.
What does this look like?
Our Campaign will focus on two aspects:
1. Raising funds!
With a solid campership fund already in place our goal is to raise $35,000 before the summer. We continue to believe this is an important part of our ministry and we want to help even more next summer. Please consider generously donating and supporting those who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend camp. You can donate at the bottom of the page.
2. Spread the word!
Spread the word about “The Green Paddle Campaign” so people are aware that we have this available. We are counting on supporters, members, campers, Pastors and whomever else to get the word out. If you chat with someone or know someone who could use some help getting to camp please let them know to get in contact with us. It’s not a rigid process and we really want to work with families in a sensitive way.
These camperships would be for families who are financially struggling or don’t have the excess income to send their kids to camp. They’re for middle income families with maybe 3 or 4 kids who can’t afford to send them all to camp. They’re for the kid we know should be at camp but maybe their parents don’t understand the value and power of camp. Please pray that God would direct you to those in need.
We know you understand the power of camp and we look forward to giving you the opportunity to make sure everyone has a chance to experience camp; we want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to paddle.
Our camperships are available to families based on the need and our fund availability. To explore your campership options give our office a call, 604-826-7062 (or toll free 1.888.707.2267, office hours M. - F. 9:30am - 4:00pm) we would love to start a conversation with you.
Every dollar makes a difference when you give to either our Campership Fund or General Fund.
Campership Fund (Green Paddle Campaign) - At Camp Luther, we have a philosophy that we believe every kid should have the opportunity to paddle. Our goal is to help get 100 kids to camp, who otherwise wouldn't have had the chance - this past year we helped over 100 campers. Help us raise the necessary funds to meet our goals. Secondly, help spread the word that we have this fund available to those that are in need that you know and should be at camp. Thank you for understanding the value and power of camp. We know that God changes lives through this place and thank you for being a part of that!
General Fund - The cost of keeping Camp Luther beautiful and ready for visitors is significant. This fund exists so that most of those costs are not passed on to campers. Camp fees are held in check by donations to this fund. Yearly expenses such as insurance, licenses, maintenance, facility upkeep, kitchen staff and equipment are significant and are all provided for through donations to this fund. We have goals to expand, upgrade and enhance what we offer at Camp Luther, but can only do that with funds available. Please consider giving as this fund impacts every visitor, ever year that Camp Luther operates.
