2nd through 6th graders gathered at Luther Glen Camp the weekend of April 15 – 17 for the 2016 Elementary Youth Gathering, “Growing in God’s Garden.” They experienced crafts, games, the many animals at the Luther Glen farm, worship, Bible study, campfire, camp food, and a whole lot of fun.
Luther Glen Camp is home to a growing sustainable farm. A pig, goats, sheep, chickens, dogs, and worms are hard at work and the gardens are growing a variety of produce that campers and guests can enjoy during their stay. The Luther Glen farm is part of a developing environmental education program focusing on sustainable agriculture and food systems.
Thanks to the members of the Southwest California Synod and Pacifica Synod Youth Teams for their hard work this past weekend helping Lutheran Retreats, Camps and Conferences lead the Elementary Youth Gathering!
