Confirmation Camp 2021

Baptism and the Sacrament of the Altar

August 3-6, 2021
Camp Io-Dis-E-ca - Solon, IA

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 on the content they learned in confirmation and catechesis class the year be-fore. 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. Over the course of the 4-day camp, Rev. Sam Beltz (St. John Lutheran Church, Oskaloosa, IA) will lead confirmands in their catechism study of Baptism and The Sacrament of the Altar. 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. This event is open to all youth grades 5th-8th, or ages 10-14.
