Task Forces

Amazing Grace Day Camps

Our day camps provide children with a quality Christian camp experience, right in their own community.  The Amazing Grace Day Camp program focuses on bringing the Good News of our loving God to unchurched children and children living in poverty in our synod.

Amazing Grace Day Camps started by serving the children in Southeast Ohio living near or under the poverty line.  With the success of this program, the task force has expanded the day camps to the inner city areas, where children benefit from our free day programs in a safe environment.

Our partnership with Lutheran Outdoor Ministries in Ohio has created a unique program that combines evangelism, outreach, and outdoor ministries.

In 2013, congregations in the Southern Ohio Synod will host 16 camps with 800 children anticipated to participate.  If you'd like to see this ministry reach more children in the Southern Ohio Synod, consider making a donation in support of Amazing Grace Day Camps.  Send donations to:
