All registration is online, through There are brochures in the narthex with camp information as well.

Salem Lutheran Church memorial committee has camperships available for members and friends. Do not let the cost of camp be the reason you don’t sign up. Voyageurs Lutheran Ministries also has funds available to help you pay for camp. We encourage you to bring a friend and introduce them to the fun and love of Jesus through camp.

Please also join us on Sunday March 22 for Camp Sunday. We will have a camp breakfast following our worship service. All are invited to attend!

Each small group decides upon and then takes part in  service projects (because Jesus calls us to serve!)  and  fellowship events (building relationships through having fun together, and creating common memories!) each academic year. For more information contact the church office.    


“Church Camp” is an integral part of our congregation’s overall youth ministry.  Our camps are Camp Hiawatha, north of Grand Rapids camp hiawathaMN and Camp Vermilion, near Cook MN – together called Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry (VLM).   VLM has been providing opportunities for Christ-centered Spiritual Growth, Leadership Development and Outreach in God’s Great Northwoods for over half of a century.  Youth, families, adults and groups from all over the country are part of that rich history.  The camps and programs are open to all.
Older elementary School children and Jr. High youth are encouraged to be part of a week-long, in-camp experience at either camp.  High School students are able to to the same, or they can  take part in the two-week LOST program –  Leadership, Outdoor Education, Service and Theology.  Salem’s Memorial Committee provides financial assistance to members in the form of “camperships”. VLM is an  Outdoor Ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) that provides a variety of year-round and summer programs out of its 2 sites in Northeastern Minnesota.  VLM also operates as an outfitter in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) through our Voyageurs Canoe Country program.
