A family camp designed especially for families of LCMS pastors and church workers has been added to the 2023 summer camp schedule at Camp Trinity, the Lutheran Camp on Petit Jean Mountain. The summer schedule also has two weekend family camp sessions, which is more convenient for most families, but because pastors who have attended family camp in previous years have had to leave early to lead worship on Sunday, it became apparent that a mid-week session would better serve church worker families.
Family Camp starts at lunch on Wednesday, July 5, and runs through Friday afternoon, July 7. Families are welcome to stay another day to spend time exploring Petit Jean Mountain. The first six families who register will be able to stay in the newly completed retreat lodge at the camp.
Camp Trinity is cutting camp fees in half for families of LCMS church workers as a means of serving the servants. Additional financial aid is available on request.
Family Camp for church workers is for all ages. Camp staff will lead a sampling of summer camp activities – hiking, swimming, canoeing, large-group games, and a visit to the petting zoo (with horseback riding available for a separate fee). Each day begins with First Word (quiet devotional time), with Bible study after breakfast. Both evenings end at a campfire with lots of singing and message about God’s love in Christ.
