Lutheran Island Camp traces its history to the wonderful ministry of the Eifert twins at Camp Emmaus. It was our distinct pleasure to host them for the final years of of Camp Emmaus. Their example provided many of us with the example we needed as we carried out our own careers in camping ministry. God will bless many people for years to come as a result of their leadership in camping ministry. Thank you Lord for your gift of the Eiferts Bill Schultz Lutheran Island Camp Henning, MN
