Lutheran Camp Information
Who: All Alaskan Lutherans- singles, couples, families and guests

When: Friday, August 3rd through Sunday, August 5th, 2018.

Where: Victory Bible Camp at Mile 95 of the Glenn Highway (Northeast of Palmer). Click here for a map.

What to Bring: Sleeping bags, pillows, toiletries, towels & washcloths, personal items, outdoor clothing appropriate for the season, Bibles for adult Bible study, a good book, board games, and a snack to share with the group. There will be an offering collected at Sunday’s worship service to benefit Victory Ministries.

More Details: Spend Friday night through Sunday afternoon at the breathtakingly beautiful Victory Bible Camp. Only an hour and a half drive from Anchorage, the facilities at Victory provide heated homes with rooms that include beds or bunks, flush toilets and hot showers in the wilderness surroundings that help you leave worldly cares behind and encourage rejuvenation of the spirit and reconnection with each other and our Creator. With plenty of opportunities for recreation-- both indoor and outdoor-- and meals provided, this is the perfect weekend getaway for just about anyone! For more information about Victory Bible Camp, please visit their website.

This year’s retreat will feature lodging on the Conference Center side of Victory. The Conference Center side of the camp are multi-bedroom homes (including multiple indoor shared bathrooms with showers), with communal living rooms and kitchens that are nearer to the meal lodge and the gym, and have fewer stairs and hills to climb.

The Alpine Camp features more rustic cabins, but they still include bunks and beds. The men’s and women’s bathrooms with flush toilets and heated showers are less than a minute’s walk from the cabins.
