Confirmation Camp at Camp Lutherlyn, Golden Lake: This camp is being planned for July 7th -12th.  Large group interactive classes are held in the morning and camp activities at other times.  The cost for the week is now $375/youth. A grant from the Eastern Synod Youth and Young Adults Committee has helped to reduce the cost.  If you want more information, please contact Linda Holm.at linda.holm0514@gmail.com. 

Summer Lutheran Youth Camp, Camp Kintail: Camp (85153 Bluewater Highway, R.R.#3, Goderich) is from August 25th to 30th.  It offers a deepening of faith and fun for youth in grade 6 right now and other youth up to grade 12.  Older youth can apply to be counsellors at camp.  Fee is $700/youth.  Possibilities of fundraising/approaching Bethany’s church council.  Contact Pastor Bonnie Schelter-Brown at pbschelterbrown@gmail.com if interested. (Grade 6 youth with Nith Valley Shared Ministry begin confirmation in the fall and this camp is seen as a good start).

ToolBox for Faith: This online Confirmation curriculum ( https://toolboxforfaith.org/ ) is free and written by people in the Lutheran (ELCA) tradition for youth and their mentors, but you may find it of interest as well.  You will discover explanations of basic faith understandings in their lessons on different parts of the Bible, the Old and New Testament, the Catechism and in Apply Your Faith (worship, service, mission, and spiritual development).
