For over 50 years, Camp Concordia has existed to provide opportunities to encounter Christ in the midst of God's Creation, enriching the bodies and souls of the thousands of campers, families, and staff who have come to this beautiful camp. With the guidance of enthusiastic counselors, campers learn about God's infinite love for them and gain respect for each other through activities such as archery, hikes, devotions, campfire songs, crazy field games, skit nights, swimming, and canoeing.
Summer children's and youth camps are places to engage in new friendships. Bring a friend or a neighbor with you.
Your group's retreat is also a possibility. Our nine small group cabins and dining hall (Lodge) are perfect for youth groups and adventurous adult groups.
Always invite a friend!

Annual Meeting & Fall Clean-up
Annual Meeting Date: October 18, 2014 - 10:00 am
(Click here for 2014 Proposed Bylaw changes. Changes in bold)
Each year, dozens of folks gather for the Camp Concordia annual meeting. "Members" of camp vote on bylaw changes and vote in new positions on the board of directors for 3-years terms of service. Both board of directors and members are individuals who have committed themselves to the historical mission of Camp Concordia and they have committed to support Camp Concordia on a regular basis either through financial donations or organized and regularly scheduled volunteerism. Camp Concordia appreciates those with vision, determination and skills who populate the board of director positions and place the good of others above themselves.
The Great Fall Leaf Round-up Date: October 17-19 - Check in 7-9 pm Friday
Camp Concordia requires a "Closing Down" each year. Dozens of people are necessary to make this happen. Part of the closing down is cleaning up the autumn leaves. Families bring rakes, mowers with pick up devices. Camp Concordia will provide meals and lodging for families who all come to work some Friday night, from Breakfast through Supper on Saturday (special meal Saturday night), and who clean up their living areas (sweep and scrub out cabins or rake up camping areas) Sunday morning. No other camping or lodging allowed this weekend. Reservations REQUIRED.
