  • First Lutheran will be offering Day Camp from Aug 2-7 for children who have completed grades K-4.  This will be a fun activity which is run by staff from Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry (REGISTRATION FORM).

    This is a wonderful opportunity to expose younger kids to camp without having to stay away from home to do it.  Camp will run from 9am-3pm every day except Friday which will be from 9am-12noon.  The cost of the camp will be $30.00. 

    If you want to register and didn’t receive a registration form, you can pick one up on the table in the Narthex or contact the office or sign up on the website.  We will have further information about camp at a later date.  If you have any questions, please contact Marcy Mateyka at 218-330-3760.

    This year we will need at least one adult volunteer to be available for each day of the camp.  There will be sign-up sheets posted soon. 

    Day Camp is in need of someone to house 3 staff members from Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry  from Aug 2-7.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Marcy Mateyka at 218-330-3760.
