Last week, LUM Camp friends & donors joined members of the LUM Board (pictured below) to spend a fun evening with our campers and staff. Our guests enjoyed returning to their childhood for a few hours of camp songs, skits and great camp food! After supper, our guests scooped ice cream sundaes for our campers, followed by an energetic concert by the talented Michael Kelsey.

LUM Camp is an overnight camp for boys & girls, 8-10 years old, who come from families served by the Lafayette Urban Ministry. Our camp includes all the traditional activities that a great camp should; plus, LUM Camp focuses on education.


2015-07-29 LUM Camp 034 (2) Fuse (640x426)This year’s theme is “For the Beauty of the Earth.” Our campers will learn about wildlife, trees and plants that are native to Indiana through activities and programs taught by Purdue Entomology experts, Indiana Department of Natural Resource staff from Prophetstown State Park and NICHES Land Trust. Our reading assignments will include stories of people who dedicated their lives to the conservation of our natural resources.


THANK YOU to everyone who helped make LUM Camp 2015 possible—through your gifts of camperships and your volunteer time, you have provided our LUM Campers with a positive, life-changing experience that they will cherish and remember forever!
