Summer Opportunities

GSLC Youth Summer Opportunities

As we explore what it means to be Christian, intensive experiences are helpful.  Good Shepherd believes that week long trips give students the opportunity to experience the Christian life and community.  For this reason, we offer opportunities for all ages to experience the Christian life and community with others.  Below are the 2022 program offerings for the 3rd through 12th grades.   

Elementary School Opportunities (3rd – 5th Grade)

There are a lot of Lutheran Camps right in our surrounding areas- and plenty of opportunities for our youth to get involved! Novusway is an organization of camps that are all located in the southern most parts of the US. Follow the links below to see their 2022 brochures.
