‘Seeding the Future’ Campaign

The Beginning of a Vision

In the late fall of 2005, the LCC board of directors began creating a strategic master plan. A few months later, 231 acres adjacent to Nawakwa became available for purchase. Both of these events created much excitement and activity among the board and staff.

In February of 2007, the board adopted the strategic plan, with one of the top priorities being to grow Nawakwa’s ministry through site expansion in order to preserve the unique character of the camp and to allow for program growth and facility additions. In December of 2007 the purchase of the land was finalized.

In January of 2008, the “Imagine” campaign was launched. The campaign raised nearly $1 million and is providing funds to help pay off the land mortgage with the Mission Investment Fund of the ELCA.

In the fall of 2010, the board initiated a strategy to retire the remaining mortgage and position the LCC in a strong financial position for expanded ministry. On April 9, 2011, the synod council of the Lower Susquehanna Synod approved the “Seeding the Future” capital campaign with a $2 million goal.
