LUM Camp is a weeklong overnight camp for boys and girls, ages 8, 9, and 10. The children come from families served by Lafayette Urban Ministry. A typical week of LUM Camp involves nature hikes, arts and crafts, boating, swimming, morning chapel, climbing, zip-lining, delicious meals, and a top-of-the-line array of staff and counselors.
LUM Camp 2020’s theme is “Join the Green Side” (“May the forest be with you…”) and will take place the last week of July. LUM will focus on teaching children to care for their neighbors by caring for the environment (the planet) in which their neighbors must live.
Please note: LUM is working closely with the professional staff at Hanging Rock Assembly Camp, the long-time host site of LUM Camp. LUM Camp is being planned in compliance with and exceeding the guidelines developed by the American Camp Association and the YMCA of the USA. All donations to LUM Camp will be used entirely on the campers’ experience, hopefully this year, but if not, next.
