  • Community lunch and turtle time – Turtle time is a rest period in which campers get to kick back and watch a movie or play quiet games to get out of the sun during the hottest part of the day.
  • Service Learning – Campers will receive hands-on learning experiences to discover more about Lutherhill’s Daily Bread Project and about how they are called to serve others!
  • Post Study Bonanza – This is a time to gather as a community and for each village to share with one another what they have learned during the day in skit, song, or another creative format.
