What’s that you say…you’ve got lots of questions?
GREAT! We can’t wait to answer them! Below are some of the questions most frequently asked of Camp Lu-Jo:
“How old does my child have to be to attend camp?”
Each session has its own age requirements, so please check out Sessions Page to discover specifics. Generally speaking, Camp Lu-Jo has week-long sessions for those entering 4th grade through graduated seniors and a special day camp for children entering 1st grade through 4th grade.
“When can campers show up for their camp session?”
Camper registration does not begin UNTIL 2:30 P.M. Sunday and ends about 5:00 P.M. Please remember that campers must not enter the dorms until they have completed registration! If you are running late, please don’t hesitate to contact the staff for that session!
“What if I didn’t have time to send in a registration form by mail? Can we just show up and register on Sunday?”
Absolutely! Please note however that each camp week has a MAXIMUM number of beds available, so it is possible that the session’s registration will close even before camp begins. Contact that session’s director for more information.
“When should campers be picked up at the end of the camp week?”
Please pick up your camper AFTER 9:00 A.M. and BEFORE 10:00 A.M. on Saturday morning of each camp session. We appreciate everyone staying until at least that time to help clean so camp can be ready for the next session! The staff are dismissed at 10:00 am on Saturday so campers must be picked up prior to that time.
“When can parents, family, and friends visit during the week?”
Guests are encouraged to join their camper for evening worship services, which occur daily Sunday through Friday. Please check your session’s schedule for their worship times.
“What should a camper bring to camp?”
Here is our most basic list…
– Pencils and paper
– Clothes for a week
– Closed-toe shoes (something suitable for sports)
– Sweater or jacket (for cool nights)
– Cap or hat (for sun)
– Personal articles: toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, comb, towels, etc.

“Can I bring my stereo, mp3, iPod, Headphones, Gameboys and electronics…stuff like that?”
Camp Lu-Jo is a oasis away from all the regular, routine things of life where you will have a full schedule of spending time with new friends and outdoors in God’s creation . You will experience first-hand how you can have a closer relationship with God. So leave the electronics at home – trust us, you won’t miss them!
