Day camps set for area youth

Lutheran Island Camp, located on a 67-acre island in the middle of East Battle Lake near Henning, will offer five weeks of day camp this summer for youth ages 5-12, from several communities in the region. The day camps will be held June 8-12, June 15-19, July 6-10, July 20-24, and July 27-31. Day camp hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day.

Each week campers will enjoy five days of fun on the island with activities including swimming, boating, crafts, Bible study, horseback riding (as time permits), hiking, picnics, as well as other sports, games and activities.

The cost is $85 per child for each week. This amount may be tax deductible for children who would normally be in daycare. Children of all faiths are welcome. Visit the camp's website at or call (218) 583-2905 for more information.

Zion and Good Shepherd Lutheran churches in Alexandria, Immanuel Lutheran in Parkers Prairie, Trinity Lutheran of Millerville, Mt. Calvary Lutheran in Miltona, St. James Lutheran and Ebeneezer Lutheran churches in rural Alexandria, and St. Paul Lutheran and Zion Lutheran churches of rural Parkers Prairie sponsor and support Lutheran Island Camp and the day camp program.
