We are excited to announce that in the morning of the Camp Celebration Day, we have now merged our Walk-A-Thon and our annual Kahuner's Paddle, honoring the legacy of Annelise Rust, into The Legacy Paddle! 

Kahuner's Paddle: Annelise Rust, whom we know by her camp name, 'Kahuner', was a beloved staff member at Camp Luther from 2011 to 2016. Kahuner was involved in a little bit of everything at Camp, from leading cabins and worship to participating in hilarious skits, and, from what we remember the most, leading canoe groups around Hatzic Lake.

Kahuner had one last paddle at Camp Luther on August 20th, 2016. We decided during Covid (Summer 2020) to honour Kahuner’s legacy by having a few friends come and paddle around Hatzic Lake with this little motto: We paddle the lake, gather as friends, and drink a cup of coffee to celebrate and remember Kahuner because this is exactly what she would want to be doing with each one of you. 

This year we are inviting everyone to come and be a part of our morning by joining us for The Legacy Paddle. 

If you would prefer to walk instead of canoeing, that is an option.

Participation is free! However, any donations made to the campership fund over $100 will receive a free camp t-shirt.


Starting at 11am, we will have activities like archery, craft shack, a basketball shoot out, face painting and a whole bunch of fun carnival games for your enjoyment! These activities will be open to everyone until lunch time – our amazing volunteers will be running these activities. There is no charge to participate.


Our Camp Canteen will also be open from 11:00am – 1:00pm where you will find candy and Camp Luther Merch. Also, there will be some there to help you if you would like to donate and help send kids to camp this summer. (Tax receipts can be issued for donations made over $20, please make sure to request one and it can be sent to you.) 

lunch (by donation)

We will be serving lunch at 12:30-1:30pm  and you can pickup your lunch ticket at the canteen (by donation).  We can't wait to sit and enjoy a meal with our camp friends and family!  We will be serving Hamburgers, Hot dogs, Veggie Burgers, BBQ Chicken, tasty salads and other goodies

The entire event will wrap up by 2pm.
