Special Guests

Sometimes the camps might have a featured guest who arrives to add a little extra spice and excitement. One summer KupKake provided a special experience for the campers. She put on a great show! KupKake arrived to arrest those camp leaders!!!

Lutherhaven Staff and Mt. Olive’s Volunteers

Of course, the volunteers and the Leaders from Lutherhaven are the people who make the VBS possible. We thank the Mt. Olive congregation (especially for their generous financial support) and all of those who helped or donated so that we can provide this program for the youngsters in our community.
