Fall Elderversity

 

September 13-15, 2021


Did you go to Bible camp as a kid and wish you could have that experience again? Or maybe you didn’t have the opportunity to go to Bible camp but would like to have that experience! Here is your chance!

 

Elderversity camp is a special camp for those age 55 and older. At camp you will have the opportunity to participate in many different camp activities such as:

 

  • Singing

  • Worship

  • Devotions

  • Pontoon ride

  • And much more!

Speaker: Pastor Luther Thoresen

Pastor Luther Thoresen retired from full time parish ministry in 2020 after serving 3 calls over 39 years. Along the way, he also completed certificate programs with the School of Sacred Storytelling, the Leadership Program for Musicians and the Hesychia School of Spiritual Direction. He is the husband of Paula, the father of 3 adult children, and a grandfather to 4 grandchildren. Originally from Osage, IA, he attended Waldorf College, Luther College and Wartburg Theological Seminary. 

Theme:

At Elderversity participants will have the opportunity to engage in Sacred Stories in a communal way to encourage growth in relationship to God and others.             Participants will also engage in Story listening as a spiritual discipline, and             encounter scripture texts through study, discussion, imagination and the arts.  Among other tales, the group will engage stories from various cultures. Since music has been integral to Luther’s life and ministry, “songs, hymns and spiritual songs” will also be part of our time together.

Safety is of primary concern at camp, so we want to let you know some of the most important adjustments we’ve made in regard to COVID-19:

  • Tables have been spaced apart in the dining areas to be six feet between groups.

  • Instead of buffet style, food will be served by the staff who are gloved and masked.

  • Additional cleaning and sanitizing in sleeping rooms and all throughout camp. 

  • Session will be held outside as much as possible

  • Masks are recommended for anyone interacting with others when six feet of physical distance is not possible.
