    Lutheran Church Camping in Central Pennsylvania is an extension of the congregation’s ministry in the unique setting that our camps provide. Children, youth, and adults learn, worship, witness, and serve within a Christ-centered Lutheran tradition. Camp Nawakwa is our camp located in beautiful Adams County. 

    Every week at Nawakwa (weather permitting) begins and ends with worship at one of our beautiful outdoor worship areas; Upper Temple, Fischer Chapel or Bishop Chapel. Community living takes place everyday through Bible Study, worship, recreation, crafts, and nature study.

    Our caring staff is here to guide children as they explore God's creation and their relationship in it. Campers are given the opportunity to choose how part of their week will go. Being part of a Lutheran Christian community has helped many campers grow - in their personal faith, in their self-confidence, and in their interactions with others. Where else can children be given all this--and still have them call it their favorite week of the summer?

    Our Nawakwa site features an Upper Temple, Lower Temple, Fischer Chapel, Bishop Chapel, Council Circle, swimming pool, athletic fields, labyrinth, craft hall, garden, sand volleyball, basketball court, high ropes / low ropes course, cabin row, and gaga court.

    Music, Equestrian, Senior Trip Sample are some of the special programs we offer at Camp Nawakwa!
