Hungry Mother Lutheran Retreat Center – Our Purpose


Hungry Mother Lutheran Retreat Center – Our purpose is to provide a sanctuary in time and space where Christ can be encountered, faith renewed and the joy of community discovered. Our Lutheran outdoor ministry supplements congregational recreational outdoor ministry and camping for all ages and offers refreshing, faith-enriching retreat experiences by creating dynamic Christian community, rewarding educational opportunities and outdoor relaxation from the routine and hectic pace of life.

We strive to ensure that all guests and staff are valued as unique individuals and can reach their full potential by living and working in a community of inclusion and mutual respect.
