Family Camp


The Elbow Lutheran Bible Camp, located 4 miles south of Elbow on Highway 19, is operated by an association of Lutheran Congregations – Bethel, Elbow; Skudesnes, Loreburn; Bethlehem, Hawarden; and Bethlehem, Outlook.

The first camp was held at the Skudesnes Church yard in 1945. In 1946 the Bible Camp moved to a site near the Elbow bridge and in 1963 the camp moved to its present location when work began on the Gardiner Dam.

Each summer a week is set aside to come together in a Family Camp setting to study the Word of God, to proclaim His faithfulness, and to teach our children the importance of the Word of God in our lives.

Family Camp 2024 begins on Saturday July 6, 2024 with a Campfire Praise Service at 7:00 P.M.  Camp week closes Friday July 12, 2024 with the noon meal.
