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.
