Grades 8 and 9

Youth take part in three confirmation camp experiences at Camp Calumet in New Hampshire. There, leaders and chaperones teach content based on Luther’s Small Catechism. Along with youth from other churches, HoP kids worship, take part in evening “wide games,” enjoy good meals in the Lakeside Dining Hall, and build community. In addition, four weekends (Friday evening and Saturday during the day) each year focus on themes and provided more opportunities to learn and grow in faith. Youth are confirmed on Reformation Sunday in their sophomore year.
