Our LUM Camp volunteers consistently share how much they LOVE their camp experience. LUM Camp volunteer-counselors recently shared, “What LUM Camp means me.

  • As a former LUM Camp camper, I was excited to volunteer and provide a happy experience as a counselor. It was the highlight of my summer. ~Ash
  • LUM Camp means a week of being outdoors, doing things I never do in my normal life. I meet new people and get lots of exercise. ~Tricia
  • So refreshing to be around young energy! They gave me quite a lift! ~Linda
  • This being my ninth year as counselor, LUM Camp is a blessing to me, seeing the kids go from shy and wanting to go home to not wanting to leave. LUM Camp has enabled me to be recognized around town by my campers and puts a smile on the kid’s faces. ~Savannah
  • Over the past four LUM Camps, I’ve observed more than 100 campers grow in self-confidence, knowledge and respect for others, as they experience a week filled with fun, food and faith. ~Gayle
  • Being a LUM Camp counselor means I get to help kids learn the fun of being a kid and be one myself again. ~April
  • Being a LUM Camp counselor has rewarded me the satisfaction of seeing the excitement, energy, confidence and joy when a child scales the climbing wall, splashes in the pool, navigates a canoe, zips through the trees. What a fun and exhausting week! ~Mary Ann (pictured)

This could be YOU! Be a LUM Camp counselor this year. It will be the best week of your summer.

LUM Counselors LOVE Their Camp Experience

LUM Camp will be the best week of your summer. Our LUM Camp volunteers consistently share how much they LOVE their camp experience. A few LUM Camp volunteer-counselors recently shared the following:


Being a LUM Camp Counselor was a highlight of my summer.

I was so excited to finally become a counselor after being a camper myself — that’s how memorable LUM Camp was for me as a kid! It only made sense to return that experience to today’s LUM Campers.

Aly

Nicole

As a LUM Camp Counselor of seven years, not only have I been able to experience the joys of camp alongside children in need, but I also have found a career in social work.

LUM Camp is truly an amazing opportunity for youth to see their own worth and have the fun they deserve.


All year I look forward to being a LUM camp counselor.

God has blessed me with this opportunity to be a happy moment in the lives of these children. My heart swells when a former camper becomes a counselor — it proves the power of positive experiences.
