We are not just a camp for kids and not just for summer! At Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Center (LOMC), we ARE the Church in outdoor settings, and we serve ALL God's people, youth and adults, year-round!
Everyone who enters camp has a need they're looking to
fulfill, whether it be a child or an adult. The need could be to get away from
life's mundane and chaotic schedule, to make new friends, to encounter a new
adventure, or to be alone with God. We come alongside whomever
and wherever you are in your journey to meet all those needs and more! We
provide faith-based experiences to grow self-confidence, relationship with
others, appreciation of God's creation, and dependence on his unwavering Word
of grace and love.
Do you know just how powerful a camp experience can be? More than 5,000 summer campers have participated in the or Power of Camp study over the past three years. On the last day of camp, 91% of these campers agreed that they were strengthened in their faith. Three months after camp, 83% of responding campers agreed that they felt more confident in themselves since returning home from camp, and 87% agreed that camp had a significant impact on their lives. Now, these are great results worth continually striving for and supporting!
2019 marks 45 years of outdoor ministry for LOMC!! This LOMC May Giving Day, consider making a $45 gift to support our mission, or stretch that goal by doubling it, in honor of our anniversary! May we continue to keep blessing our guests and make a lifelong impact for many more years to come!
We're aiming to raise $10,000 for our Ministry Fund to help keep our operations running efficiently. You can make a donation online through this secure site and immediately receive your tax-deductible donation receipt.

Friends of LOMC,
You made it happen! We smashed our goal! The campaign has closed and the FINAL numbers are in. We received a total of $11,025, 110% of our goal, with a total of 110 donors and 7 Fundraising Champions! WOW.
We are so grateful for this incredible response and collective effort, including gifts from our Board of Directors, our fundraisers, and all of YOU!
Thank you for being good stewards of His provisions and sharing them with us. Likewise, we will invest these funds directly back into programming, staff, and facilities to provide the quality and standards you would expect of our ministry of 45 years!
There are other ways to remain involved with LOMC. Follow us on Facebook to hear about upcoming events and see our ministry in action. We’re always looking for volunteers on-site to help with projects. If you’re local/regional and have special gifts you’d like to share like landscaping, construction, housekeeping or spending time with kids, we’d love to hear from you!
Please stay in touch with us by keeping current contact information on file, an email and/or mailing address, to ensure a proper thank you and a tax-deductible letter is provided to you.
We are humbled and grateful for your devotion to LOMC.

THANK YOU all for your generous giving! We are more than halfway to our goal with $5,305 funds raised! Praise God!
Our matching gift has been completed, and we need just 12 more donors to have our 45 donor challenge met, which gives a $450 donation from a Board member.
We couldn't do what we do without your support. Thank you!
