Summer Camp Quilt & Kit Program

Campers at Camp Lutherlyn (Prospect, PA) worked together with the Woodland Quilters, a quilting group that meets regularly at Lutherlyn.

Camp is a time for fun and learning. Quilts & Kits are great projects that deliver international service right into the hands of your campers and counselors, without ever leaving your site.

Here’s how:

Order our free resource, so you can learn how to engage your campers in the project.

Decide what you are going to make: These all make a significant difference in lives around the world. Learn more about each resource and find resources to help your assembly:

Track your Kits: While you are creating and collecting Quilts and Kits, don’t forget to track them so you can share with campers and parents where their acts of faith went. If your camp isn’t in the Tracker system please contact us at lwr@lwr.org.
Educate Counselors & Campers: Share the story and pictures of the impact your Quilts and Kits will make around the world.

Share your story on social media: Be sure to use #CampLWR and tag LWR

Send your kits on their way: Bless your kits during your closing worship with our blessing litanies and then send them on their way. You have two options for submitting your Quilts & Kits:

  1. Ingatherings: Each year dedicated volunteers coordinate local collections for LWR Quilts and Kits. Groups and congregations pool their donations and share the costs of getting the Quilts and Kits to LWR. Find an Ingathering close to your camp and a Key Leader to connect with.
  2. Shipping or Delivering: Include the name and address of your camp on each box, label contents and send prepaid to our drop off at the warehouse closest to you:
