High school youth and their adult leaders are invited to participate in Camp SJ, a 3-day camp to culminate the year of learning. If it is safe to gather next summer (based on CDC and government guidelines), we will partner with our synod outdoor ministries to worship, learn, grow, and play together at Camp Onomia, Luther Crest Bible Camp and Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry. The focus will be on leadership development and creating a plan to put in place when you return to your congregation.
Dates: June 27-29, 2021. Cost: $100 per person. Ages: Youth in grades 8-12 in fall 2020. Adult leaders must be at least 21 years old.
Camp SJ Timeline:
September 1, 2020: Registration Information and Forms Posted Detailed information and forms will be posted at by September 1, 2020.
October 1-15, 2020: Group Registration To help us estimate the number of beds we need to hold at each camp, congregations will be asked to complete a “Group Registration Commitment” with a $100 non-refundable deposit per congregation (not participant). Group Registration will open October 1 and close October 15, or when all spaces are reserved. This process will allow camps to make alternative plans for the summer if we do not fill their space.
November 2020: Confirmation Letter and Camp Assignments The Synod Journey Team will assign congregations to specific camps based on preference listed and availability. You will receive a confirmation letter in November with your assignment, updates on Camp SJ and leadership opportunities for youth.
February 1 – March 30, 2021: Participant Registration Congregations register individual participants for Camp SJ with a non-refundable deposit of $50 per participant (including adult leaders). Your Group Registration Deposit will be applied to your final payment. Additions can be made after March 30 as space allows.
June 15: Final Payment and Health Forms Due All payments and Health/Release Forms are due by June 15. No refunds are given after June 15.
