Our History

Camp Luther was purchased by the North Wisconsin District -- LCMS in 1946. Ninety-one acres, a Lodge and three cottages were purchased for just $22,000. Many improvements were made and much growth was seen through the 1950s and 60s as additional land, more cottages and other facilities were added. The camp became a year-round ministry in the 1970s as the first full-time staff was put in place. Camp Luther saw tremendous growth in the 1970s and 80s with the addition of many new programs, retreats, and cottage rental opportunities.

Today Camp Luther annually hosts over 5500 guests. A variety of camping programs are offered for people of all ages. 15 cottages that dot the shore of Range Line Lake provide a unique getaway for families. Dozens of youth, family, and adult groups take advantage of this excellent facility each year.
