Your gifts make camp happen.


Make a Difference Today!

The mission of Lutherans Outdoors in SD to “…welcome all to explore experience Christ’s love and in creation and community” is made real by generous people like you. Powerful things happen at camp as faith is deepened, leaders are formed, and lives are changed. For this we say, Thank You! You are making a tremendous impact.


Support Camperships

The Lutherans Outdoors camping experience is vitally important.  Our campership program ensures that everyone has the opportunity to experience the life changing events at camp regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

Last year we were able to provide 536 camperships totaling $97,000 thanks to the wonderful support of friends and donors! 

The cost of a full campership is $700.00. This sends one person to camp who otherwise couldn’t attend. We estimate this year we will need $100,000 to meet the need of those who want to go to camp.

We are so thankful we are able to assist in making the dream of going to camp a reality. It is because of YOUR generosity that this campership program is able to assist so many. 

We wish you and your family a wonderful and safe summer. 

Many Blessings,
Paul Hanson, Acting Director of Lutherans Outdoors in SD

Joy With Lutherans Outdoors

One of my favorite Christmas Eve memories is taking midnight walks with my family. Especially if it was a snowy night. It was a true reminder of God’s love for me.

A gift to the LO ministry provides an opportunity for campers to walk with God at their favorite camp and feel the love that God provides to them.

May the peace of Christ be with you and your family!

Paul J. Hanson, Executive Director
