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.

Important upcoming dates for those registered with LO:

  • November 2016 - May 2017: Pre-registration
  • August 2017: Registration Opens to LOSD
  • September 2017: Registration Opens to the Gathering
  • October 2017: Confirmation from the Gathering
  • January-May 2018: Leader Trainings and In-State Gatherings
  • June 2018: Houston, We Have A Gathering!

Currently we are estimating the trip to cost $1,100 per person (Does not include lunch/supper or souvenirs.) We will be taking pre-registrations through May, then finalizing pricing dependent on the number of interested groups. 

More information about the theme, Gathering videos etc. can be found at the Gathering website.
