Spring is a beautiful time of the year at the Lutheran Island Camp and Christ Serve Ranch. As the sun begins to bring its warmth north, the ice begins to soften, then disappear. The trees begin to breath in fresh spring air through budding leaves, exhaling a new, fresh air that makes a walk around the Island or Ranch a must. Animals begin to scurry about seeking food and mates, carrying for newborn babies, and preparing new homes. Birds begin to arrive, make nests, and repopulate the skies with an abundance of color and sound. Green becomes the dominant color, replacing the browns that had been hidden by snow for 5 months. This year we'll be using Christ Serve Ranch as well as Lutheran Island Camp.
Yes, Spring is a great time to visit the Island if only to observe God’s Creation. But we have much more to offer. Our programs are Biblically based, strong in content, and interesting for all ages. We provide packages for groups of all sizes as well as opportunities for individuals and families. Our guests include men’s groups, women’s groups, families, youth groups, and congregations looking for planning help. We also offer marriage programs, confirmation retreats, and so much more.
Come to the Island in the Spring of 2015. It will be a visit you will grow from.
