In 1953 there became an increasing awareness of Bible Camps as an energizing and invigorating spiritual force in our midst; a development from mere children’s camps to camps that include the whole family!
In the first years at Hatzic Lake it was necessary to use a “tent of meeting”. The men went to work immediately however, to build that most necessary building, the kitchen for use in summer 1953. In ‘54 one of our most thrilling ventures was launched when in one day, the dining hall and temporary chapel was built. To meet our growing needs, the expansion has included the addition of many new cabins, washrooms, plumbing, electrical wiring, etc. - all done by the dedicated volunteer help of uncounted workers from the various churches.
"This Centennial Year of 1958 we, the members and friends of Camp Luther thankfully express our faith in the construction of the Centennial Chapel - That all who enter these grounds may remember that here we tread on dedicated ground, intended to re-create us in body, soul and mind."
Now over 65 years later, Camp Luther's continues to recognize the power of camp more than ever. Campers and their families come and experience the core values that Camp Luther was built on. We look forward to having you be a part of our story.
The three logs represent the Trinity - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
God the Father is seen in the fire as He spoke to Moses out of the burning bush. God the Son, our Risen Saviour, is represented by the bare cross and His sacrifice for our sins by the three drops of blood on the cross. God the Holy Spirit, is represented by the dove, as testified by the Apostle John, as well as the flames of fire which sat upon the apostles at Pentecost.
