The Lutheran Camp Association (LCA) is the group of about 1,000 families, women, and men who own and operate Camp Arcadia. This group of committed Arcadians supports Camp’s unique ministry and mission. The LCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Families or individuals may apply to join the Lutheran Camp Association for a nominal lifetime donation of $500. Members of the association are to elect board members, vote on important issues, and are given the opportunity to participate in the early registration process for a vacation at Camp Arcadia. Early registration is conducted each October and is when up to 75% of each retreat is filled with LCA member families through a random drawing process.
Annual Membership Meeting of the LCA
The Annual Membership Meeting is held each year in the fall. The 2016 meeting will be on Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 10 AM ET at Trinity Lutheran Church in St. Joseph, MI.
