Join in the Christikon Life!
For 67 years, Christikon has been a special place for spiritual growth and renewal with friends, old and new; an intentional Christian community where all are welcome, chosen, cherished, loved, forgiven, redeemed, and made worthy by none other than Jesus Christ himself.
Worship begins and ends each day. We study the Bible together, take time to reflect and be alone before God. We work hard, play hard, enjoy time together and time apart, with time for worship & prayer, and time for silliness and song.
Christikon is a place of joy that lifts up God’s gift of life. A place for you. You don’t have to be Lutheran to be at Christikon. Come with your questions, your doubts, your challenges, and joys.
You Are Welcome Here.
Christikon seeks to provide opportunities for campers young and old to grow as the Body of Christ. We move towards a deeper experience and awareness of Christian community centered in worship, where all are sustained in the covenant of baptism and drawn more deeply into the lives of each other.
Embody the Gospel of Jesus Christ
Grounded in a Lutheran articulation of the gospel, we strive to share the grace of God with all, hoping for it to shape everything we do. We move towards a deeper experience and awareness of Christian community, centered in worship, where all are sustained in the covenant of baptism and drawn more deeply into the lives of each other.
Raise Up Stewards of Creation
We use our majestic mountain setting to encourage a greater appreciation of the natural environment, to develop a deeper sense of gratitude and responsibility for the whole creation of God. We explore the biblical story together, listening for God’s Word to us. We try to model Christian character as we face this world’s hungers and hopes.
Grow Leaders & Faithful Partners in Ministry
We try to strengthen the work and witness particularly of those who serve as our staff members, offering training and experience for leadership on behalf of the church. We try to maintain the connection between life at camp and life back home. We offer our mountain facilities for congregational retreats.
