another amazing camp for kids
Luethi-Peterson summer camps run between four and six weeks in length. Camps are run for either Younger Kids between 9 and 14 years of age, or Older Kids between 14 and 17 years of age. On average, each camp is attended by 24 campers and is run by eight counselors — just one big happy family, really! The LPC brochure contains further details on what to expect from summer camp, as does our overview of a typical day at an LPC camp.
Today, LPC is a non-profit volunteer organization whose aim is to foster international understanding by bringing together children from various cultural backgrounds. Through crafts, sports, music, and language study, LPC emphasizes self-government, guiding children to take responsibility not only for themselves but also for their community. LPC campers do a lot of their own cooking and cleaning and share in the decision-making process at camp. And, of course, they also have a lot of fun!
