LUM Camp 2017 – Best Camp Ever



Wednesday night during LUM Camp, LUM friends & board members traveled in a LUM bus out to camp at Hanging Rock Assembly Camp in Warren County. When they arrived at camp they met the campers and sang camp songs, and were then treated to an authentic camp supper followed by an ice cream social — sundaes with all the fixin’s. Our guests scooped and served the ice cream to our campers which encouraged more interaction. You could tell that our guests enjoyed returning to their childhood for a few hours and our campers enjoyed having them visit for the evening.

In addition to all of the traditional activities including morning chapel, horseback riding, swimming, nature hikes, boating, arts and crafts, campfires — this year’s LUM Camp included interactive and experiential learning focused on our theme, When I Grow Up. Throughout camp, our campers spent much of our week talking about and exploring careers and the educational foundation they will need to secure a future bright with promise. LUM Campers left camp last Friday more inspired and prepared to pursue their future.

Thank you to everyone who helped make LUM Camp 2017 possible. Through your donations, campership gifts, and volunteer time, you have once again made it possible for our LUM Campers to have a positive, life-changing experience that they will remember fondly for the rest of their lives.

Countdown to LUM Camp 2017


When I Grow Up! — August 1 -4

It’s time again for LUM Camp, and this year’s theme is When I Grow Up!

LUM Camp is an overnight camp from August 1 – 4 for boys and girls 8, 9 and 10 years old.  Attending are children who are from families served by Lafayette Urban Ministry. Our camp is one of Indiana’s most well-respected summer camp programs for at-risk children.

This year as the theme When I Grow Up! indicates, the LUM Camp staff will urge our LUM Campers to think, ponder and dream about their futures by exploring careers that match their interests. Please, won’t you help build their futures by offering to them the gift of LUM Camp?
