It’s time to give those catechisms some summer attention! With the busyness of summer, many confirmands go months without picking up their catechism, let alone even thinking about the content they learned in confirmation and catechesis class the year before. Before confirmands know it, they’ll be thrust right back into the swing of their confirmation studies in the fall, scrambling to recover and remember what they already went through last year. Higher Things Confirmation Camp is here to give confirmands a refresher and new insight into their Lutheran catechesis life. This will be a week filled with edifying catechesis, distinctively Lutheran worship, and tons of outdoor fun that you won’t want to miss!
At Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca, campers will enjoy numerous outdoor activities along with their worship and learning! Participants will spend time in activities such as archery, canoeing, horseback riding, rock climbing, zipping (zip line), disc golf, swimming, large-group games, campfire and s’mores, and many more! Registration is open to both groups and individuals, meaning confirmands can come with their classmates and a chaperone or register individually and be chaperoned by one of Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca’s camp counselors.
There are two ways to attend. First, as an individual or group of friends (without an adult chaperone) that will lodge residentially with Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca counselors serving as residential caretakers. Second, groups may attend with adult chaperones. These groups will be assigned a camp counselor to lead them throughout their week at Camp so they can fully participate. To register a group please follow the registration instructions located on the website as well as the informational packet.
Registration for each camper is $285. The registration fee includes all meals throughout the duration of camp as well as all activities, classes, and lodging at Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca. You may contact Andrew Folkmann, Director of Programs and Retreats at Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca at (319) 848-4187 or firstname.lastname@example.org to email you an information packet. The Camper Profile, Health Form, Health Screening Form, and Release of Liability must be completed for each camper. Groups and individuals should register online or by mailing the Camp Registration Packet to Camp IO-DIS-E-CA by July 20th.
