Our Purpose
Minnesota Valley Lutheran Camp exists to provide elementary age children the opportunity to worship the Lord and grow in their Christian faith as they participate in outdoor activities under the direction of Christian counselors. Any student who has just finished 3rd through 8th grade in Spring 2017 is eligible to enroll as a camper. Please see your Pastor for a brochure and registration form or find a form at www.welsmn.org.

Our Goals

  • To help campers grow in their understanding of God’s Word so they may apply it to their lives.
  • To help campers discover new ways they might express and practice their faith through their words and actions with other campers.
  • To help campers learn good sportsmanship as they participate in the many and varied activities of the camp.
  • To teach campers that each day of their life offers continuous opportunities to live praising and glorifying their God.

Minnesota Valley Lutheran Camp
is often commonly referred to as “camp Shetek.” That is because this week-long camp is held at the facilities of the Lake Shetek State Park’s Zuya Group Campground, located near Currie, Minnesota. (A map to the State Park is available upon request.)

This campground has three cabins with bunk beds for the campers–each accommodating 20 campers and 2 counselors. An additional building is able to house 12 additional campers and includes a large room where we teach our crafts. A Main Lodge is used for meals and larger group gatherings, such as, daily Bible Study and devotions. Lavatory facilities are found in one common bathroom building that is separate from all of the cabins.

2017 Dates
MVL Bible Camp will be held June 18th to 24th, 2017. Check-in time runs from 5:30-7pm in the Main Lodge. (Additional forms will be sent or emailed to you after your registration form has been received. These forms should be brought with you at “Check-in.”) Check-out time will be Saturday, June 24th from 9:30am to 11:00am.

$215/per camper for all who register for Camp before April 17, 2017; Registrations received after April 17 will be $240/camper. These fees cover all meals and activities, a customized T-shirt and State Park fees. $25 is suggested to cover Canteen (snacks, pop, etc.) costs.
