Outdoor ministry is a memorable, formative, and vital part of a child’s faith journey. The experience of going away to camp can renew and enhance spiritual growth. It is an opportunity to teach children and youth in an intense and experientially rich setting. The camp staff becomes role models. The children witness the faith lives of these young adults as well as that of peers and other mentors who participate in the camp experience. Children who attend summer camp are blessed and given a stone in June each year.
The Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to suspend on-site summer camp programming at Carol Joy Holling Camp until we can operate safely.
