Crossways Lutheran Camping Ministries

"Bringing people together in Christ so lives are changed and communities enhanced."

Crossways Lutheran Camping Ministries is an association of nearly 200 congregations in Wisconsin providing programs and resources for congregations throughout the year at three different camps. Pine Lake Camp is located south of Waupaca, Imago Dei Village is located on Long Lake near Clintonville, and Waypost on Mission Lake is 25 miles east of Stevens Point. All are within easy driving distance and provide high quality programs and facilities for all ages throughout the calendar year. Each camp brings a solid tradition of church-related camping activities that will provide you with a sense of inspiration and renewal, no matter what your stage in life.


Crossways offers a full slate of week-long and weekend programs throughout the summer months for youth who have completed grade 2 through grade 12. You will also find family and adult sessions, weekend getaways, and special programs for senior adults at the camps of Crossways. Call for a summer camp brochure with all the details.

High Adventure programs are available for youth grades 8 through 12. These include backpacking in the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan, rock climbing training and several bike trip tours. These programs are all open to group or individual registration. Church youth groups may also be interested in utilizing the Great Adventure Tour, an adventure week designed to build up group identity and cohesiveness.

Crossways also leads Day Camps in congregations throughout Wisconsin each summer. Staff and program travel to church and park sites each week to lead activities and bible studies with grades 1-6.


The camps of Crossways provide very comfortable lodging and meeting space throughout the year for youth and adult groups. Recent projects have radically increased and improved retreat accommodations at all three camps. Crossways can handle any congregational group from 8 to 80, and can provide full meals and programs when requested. You will enjoy the hospitality and leadership provided at Waypost, Pine Lake and Imago Dei. Crossways also sponsors programmed retreats and conferences each year, so come and explore the north woods setting at our camps. Watch the leaves turn yellow on a warm fall weekend. Ski the trails or relax by a warm fireplace on a cold winter evening. Reflect on the importance of faith and be renewed in the struggles of everyday living. It can happen on a retreat to one of your camps of Crossways this year! Join us.
