Summer Camp Changes Lives-It’s that simple!


heridan believes a week at camp can help students experience God in the ordinary and often renews and even jump starts a closer relationship with God. Camp is an important part of our children and youth ministries. During the summer we like to think of it as an extension of our programming here. It’s a part of our ministry. Each summer we promote a “Sheridan Week” to allow our Sheridan children and youth the comfort of recognizing fellow youth. Families may register for any week of the summer that works for their schedule.


To help with costs, and to show support of camping ministry, camperships are available for each Sheridan child to participate in one session at an ELCA Lutheran summer camp, (up to $100 for a full week session and $50 for a partial week session).

To request a campership for your child, contact

How to Register

Families are asked to mail in registrations with deposits directly to the desired camp, but let the church know when your child is planning on attending so we can connect you with other families from Sheridan. Additional information for each camp is available below or at the Connections Center in the Education Wing of the building.
