Camp at Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp
This Summer, 2019, is Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp Summer! All children and youth currently in 3rd-12th grades will have the opportunity to go to camp this Summer at Rainbow Trail in Hillside, CO. Families with children of all ages are also able to go to Family Camp. 
The camp theme this year is “I AM, We Are.” The Bible study centers on the book of John where Jesus refers to himself several times in “I AM” language, such as “I AM the bread of life,” “I AM the light of the world,” “I AM the way, the truth and the life.” The theme verse is from John 11:25 – ” I AM the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live.” This study will dig into the different aspects of who Jesus is for us, and how this relationship changes who we are in the world. You will be prepared to return home to share this renewed and stronger relationship with Christ!
We hope that all of our children and youth at St. Philip will be able to join us at Rainbow Trial this summer!

How Much is Camp?
St. Philip continues to help our children and youth go to camp through our 1/3 program: St. Philip pays for 1/3 of camp, the goal is to fund raise for 1/3 of camp and the goal is for families to only have to pay for 1/3 of camp. The cost of camp this year is $455; therefore, the goal is for families to only have to pay $152 to send their child/youth to camp. Don’t let cost be an issue, come talk with JoHanna Buchholz orPr. Brad if you are concerned about the cost.
How do I Register My Child?
There are a couple of ways to register for camp:
Step #1 – Form and Deposit
  1. Online – Click here to register online at You will need to login or create an account. From there you can register your child and pay the deposit.
  2. Paper Form – fill out a Rainbow Trail registration form, which can be found at one of the links below or you can get one from JoHanna Buchholz or Pastor Brad. You can then mail your registration form to Rainbow Trail or turn your form and $100 deposit (made out to St. Philip or Rainbow Trail) to JoHanna or Pastor Brad.
Step #2 – Inform JoHanna and Pastor Brad who has registered. St. Philip cannot help you fund raise or pay 1/3 of the cost if we don’t know who is registered. Rainbow Trail does not inform us.
