Confirmation Packet – Woods

Dear Woods Camper,

I want to thank you for choosing the Luther Park Woods program.  Luther Woods is a 320 acre wilderness wonderland located 35 miles north of Chetek, near Birchwood, WI.  There truly is an adventure waiting for you at Luther Woods!  Your faith will grow as you experience God’s beautiful creation with the summer staff and other youth who will join you.

Luther Woods Adventurers offers an opportunity to learn more about God and explore how we live out our faith by caring for the earth.  Each day you will spend time experiencing faith-filled fun activities including: large group games on the field, swimming in the lake, crafts, story time, Bible Study, hiking, outdoor skill building, campfires, star gazing and worship.

While at Luther Woods meals are planned with the following in mind: ease of preparation over a campfire, nutritional value, and popularity of the food.  Meals are prepared and served outdoors.  This allows you to have a rustic, real camping experience while at Luther Woods.

In keeping with the camping spirit, we must show our respect for the land and others at camp. In order to do this, the camp staff has compiled a list of items you will need to bring with you and also a list of items to leave at home.  This list can be found in a link below. Since space is limited in the tents at the Woods, anything extra that you bring along will be left at camp in a secure location while you are at the Woods.  The staff will help you pack-down to get ready for your adventure before you head to the Woods.

Our summer staff is trained in first aid and emergency procedures.  If it rains while at the Woods, the group will take shelter and wait out the storm.  If the weather is severe you will relocate to Luther Woods’ storm shelter.  If you have any questions, please call the camp office at (715) 859-2215.

Don’t forget to read the Facts sheet for other important camp details. I am excited that you will be part of our Luther Woods Adventures program this summer at Luther Park. May you discover God in amazing ways during your upcoming outdoor adventure!
