The three weeks of Camp Bird for Lutherans are complete. It was a long process to prepare for camp and to minimize risks to 91 campers, 13 cabin counselors, and numerous staff during each of the three weeks. We thank God for the blessings of being able to gather for meals, music and Bible classes, campfires and devotions. We thank God for the blessings of being able to enjoy nature, handicrafts, archery, swimming and boating, sports and games, and all the activities that Camp Bird offers. While the daily schedules at camp looked a little different this year, the campers and staff were given the opportunities to participate in awesome activities every day.
The devotions for the week were based on Isaiah 43:1: Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. Campers and staff explored the many ways that God shows His love to us—at Camp Bird and in our daily lives at home, school, and community. We are truly blessed to be brothers and sisters in Christ.
Everyone was excited to be part of the come-back year for camp. We thank the campers and staff for their excitement during the weeks of camp. We also want to say thanks to the parents for their excitement at the return of camp; we appreciated your little notes of thanks and encouragement in your children’s applicationsJ. May God bless you as the summer winds down. We look forward to seeing you again, God-willing, in Summer 2022. Watch the website for information about the new camp season.
There are several pictures and videos available on this website. (See below for albums from all 3 weeks.) You will also find pictures and videos on our Facebook page—just search for Camp Bird for Lutherans.
If you have discovered that your camper left items at camp, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll work with you to get your items back to you. Items will be stored until August 31, 2021; after that they will be donated to a resale shop that supports an area Lutheran high school.
