Closings help camp

Lutherdale Bible Camp, Elkhorn, Wis., is adding an adult lodge thanks to legacy gifts from two churches and an anonymous matching gift. Mayfair Lutheran Church, Chicago, closed in June 2012 and gave $50,000 to the camp. On Easter Sunday 2013, Christ Lutheran Church, Melrose Park, Ill., also closed and gave $30,000. The $500,000 anonymous gift will match what the churches gave and future gifts. The number of adult visitors is increasing, accounting for more than half of Lutherdale’s 11,000 guests in 2013 (www.lutherdale.org).
