Luther College summer athletic and Discovery Camps are back

Registration is now open for summer athletic camps and Discovery Camps at Luther College. Summer camps for 2021 will be offered in a day camp format and will include offerings for distance running, football, soccer, tennis and wrestling in the months of June and July; and four unique Discovery Camps during the month of June.

            "Luther College athletics is thrilled to be offering area youth with an opportunity to participate in summer sports camps this year! We can't wait to see our campers back on campus," said Chris Garcia Prats, assistant athletic director and men's soccer coach.

            Athletic camps are available for campers entering kindergarten through 12th grade. To learn more about Luther's summer athletic camp offerings or to register visit www.luther.edu/sports/camps

In addition to the sport camps, Luther College, in partnership with Winneshiek County Conservation, offers Discovery Camps to all students interested in learning more about the beauty and diversity of the natural world. Each week students participate in courses designed to engage them in hands-on, discovery-oriented learning about their environment. 

"We are excited to once again safely bring campers together to explore nature, make new friends, gain new skills and have fun outside," said Lilly Jensen, Discovery Camps director. 

            There are Discovery Camps available for those pre-K through 8th grade. To learn more about Luther's summer Discovery Camps or to register visit www.luther.edu/environmental-outreach/discovery-camp.

Luther College is committed to providing a safe camp experience. CDC and local public health COVID-19 guidelines will be followed. Campers can expect daily health screening questions, mask wearing, increased hand washing or use of waterless soap, and to be assigned to a small group (pod) of campers to play/train with during the camp experience. Due to the pandemic, there will be no overnight camps this summer.

Luther College is home to more than 1,800 undergraduates who explore big questions and take action to benefit people, communities and society. Our 60+ academic programs, experiential approach to learning and welcoming community inspire students to learn actively, live purposefully and lead courageously for a lifetime of impact.
