Are you spiritually dry? Need to recharge? Looking for meaning or purpose in life? Are you lonely, looking for deeper Christian friendship and fellowship? Then Mount Carmel’s August Adult Camps are perfect for you!

Be strengthened in your faith through high-quality Bible study and stimulating conversation with your peers. In the evenings, Mount Carmel offers worship services with quality preaching from guest preachers and music led by our very own gifted musician, Patsy Baglien. In the afternoons you’ll enjoy all the fun of camp: pontoon rides, campfire, board games, and a talent show.

We offer a variety of housing options from air conditioned lodge rooms to quaint cottage cabins overlooking the lake. All have their own private bathroom and comfortable beds.

Adult Camps typically run from Monday afternoon through Thursday mornings. Click here for the 2020 line-up and to register.

Experience uplifting concerts and silly talent shows. Visit the local winery or go shopping downtown with friends. Play some golf, soak up sun on the beach, or go on a pontoon adventure around Lake Carlos. Make new friends or renew old ones. Commune with God, nature, and with one another in this mountain top experience, all in the name of Jesus Christ!

2020 Adult Camp Options

Out of Egypt: The Exodus Up Close

Fred Baltz, teacher

Laurie Neill, preacher

Who was the Pharaoh of the Exodus? Can we know? Does it matter? What can we say about the plagues in light of science? Where and how did Israel cross the “Red Sea”? Might remains of the chariot army yet be found? Appreciate the Law in its proper context, as a gift from God, but not as a means of salvation. Consider what “hardening the heart” was and still is. Hear again of the God of Israel who came down to set his people free from bondage. Come and compare the Exodus with God’s New Testament act of deliverance, the cross.

Philippians: Finding Contentment in Times of Hardship

Wayne Peterson, teacher

Todd Olson, preacher

In Philippians, Paul conveys a powerful message about the secret of contentment. Though he experienced hardship, poverty, beatings, illness, and even his current  imprisonment, in every circumstance Paul learned to be content, even joyful. By following Jesus Christ, we look forward with hope, not back in regret.

Older & Newer Arrivals: Lutheran Immigration to America

Tom Jacobson, teacher

Mark Granquist, preacher

Scandinavian Lutheran immigration helped shape the culture of so many communities, and is a part of the greater American Christian experience. We will explore this history of Scandinavian immigrants and see how they have evolved, and continue to adapt to the changing religious landscape in America.
