In Retreats

Higher Things and Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca are pleased to announce the second annual Higher Things Confirmation Camp! This years camp will be help July 31-August 3, 2018.

Lord, teach us to pray. Prayer isn’t just memorizing a script or sharing your feelings. It was given for your comfort, but it’s hard to pray if you don’t know who you’re talking to. It’s terrifying if God knows about everything you hide from the rest of the world. Generic gods get generic prayers, and nobody expects help from the God who gives sinners what they deserve. So God teaches us who He is. We know who God is based on what He does. The Creed paints a picture of our God, what to expect from Him, and where to find it. The Lord’s Prayer joins that to real life. Jesus teaches us to pray that sinners may find comfort and help. Over the course of a 4-day camp at Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca in Solon, IA, Rev. Harrison Goodman (St. Paul Lutheran Church, Winside, NE and St. Paul Lutheran Church, Carroll, NE) will lead confirmands in their catechism study and Rev. Sam Beltz (St. John Lutheran Church, Oskaloosa, IA) will preside over our worship times for the week. It’ll be a week filled with edifying catechesis, distinctively Lutheran worship, and tons of outdoor fun!

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.
