Houston Gathering Experience

A trip to the ELCA Youth Gathering lead by the staff of Lutherans Outdoors in South Dakota.

June 25 - July 2, 2018

Join youth from around the state as Lutherans Outdoors provides leadership for a South Dakota group to the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston. A number of congregations from around the state will be gathering together in Sioux Falls to depart on a grand adventure. We will get to know youth and adults from around the state, while spending time on the road and throughout the gathering.

It's 2018, which means Gathering info will be coming your way at a rapid pace!

Many of you are well on your way to fundraising goals and have started meeting with youth and are digging into the Getting Ready materials. Way to go!
