NLC kids and youth graduating from grades 3-12! We are going back to Camp Vermilion in Cook, Minnesota for a one-of-a-kind, specially tailored week of camp in God’s Great Northwoods just for Normandale kids, youth and friends! Camp Vermilion is a beautiful camp on Lake Vermilion four hours north of the Cities. It will be a week of a lifetime: canoeing, learning camping skills, cooking over a fire, teamwork, deepening friendships and making new NLC friends, being silly, laughing, and learning what it means to live and love as God’s people in the world. Camp Vermilion (of Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry) carefully selects their staff in order to provide the best experience possible for each camper, including yummy meals for hungry campers. Everything VLM does is to help kids see it truly is great to be alive in God's Great Northwoods!
We’ll offer camp programs for:
Trekkers: Completed gr 5 & 6
Explorers: Completed gr 7&8
Junior Counselors*: Completed gr 9-12
*Applications and a counselor training session are prerequisites for being a Jr. Counselor. See Youth Summer page for registration.
Preschool Summer Camps
This summer Normandale Preschool is offering 2 fabulous summer camps for children age 3 by June 1, 2019 through age 5 pre-kindergarten. At Bears camp, we’ll learn about Grizzly Bears, Brown Bears, Panda, and Polar Bears. This fun week will end with a Teddy Bear Picnic! The next week, we’ll go places on wheels, water, wings, and of course, our bodies can take us many places as well. Let’s Go! Don’t forget to bring a lunch, as we will eat together in our classroom or have a picnic outdoors! Questions?
