Chad has served as an assistant professor of OT theology, contributed hymns to the Lutheran Service Book, and cohosts the podcast “40 Minutes in the OT.” He holds Master’s degrees from Concordia Theological Seminary and Hebrew Union College. In addition to writing two books, Christ Alone and The Infant Priest, he has contributed articles to Modern ReformationThe FederalistConcordia Pulpit ResourcesMockingbird and other publications.

What are we trying to achieve?

We want man to come enjoy a good time with each other, learn more about how God designed us, and prepare to take our next step as we follow Jesus. … And build fires and eat meat.


How old do you have to be to come?

Registration is open to high school students and up. If you are a minor, you need to be accompanied by your father or a sponsor. We encourage grandfathers, fathers, and sons to come and bond. If you are a minor, there is a special form we will need to have signed.


Why Camp Lone Star?

Camp Lone Star is a great ministry partner with Redeemer. Our children and students attend this camp. It is close. The showers and restrooms are clean. And it can hold more people than previous locations.


Where do I sleep? It’s your choice.

  1. CABIN: Comes fully loaded with bathrooms, showers, and bunk beds.
  2. TENT: We are popping up a Tent Village if you want to rough it.
  3. CAMPERS: Bring your RV and hook up for the weekend.



Yes! If you would like to carpool, please indicate on the registration form.


Do I need to sign up in advance for any of the free time activities?



Is there anything registration cost doesn’t cover?
