Maple Syrup Festival

Indulge in a day of maple-filled fun at our annual festival! Enjoy all-you-can-eat pancakes, maple sausage, and live music from a local band. Try sassafras tea and donuts cooked over an open fire, buy some real maple syrup, or take a nature hike. Don’t forget to visit the sugar shack to see how maple syrup is made.

Take a break from the fun and relax by the fire, connecting with old and new friends. Our annual maple syrup festival is a fun and welcoming tradition for families and the community. Plus, every purchase supports summer camperships for kids. Don’t miss this sweet and memorable family-friendly event!

What is a campership?

At our annual Maple Syrup Festival, we raise funds for camp scholarships (camperships). Your support can make a big difference — just $590 can send a child to summer camp, and $2,235 can send a family of four to camp at Luther. 

Last year, thanks to your generosity, 269 campers were able to attend camp. Help us make camp accessible to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Every contribution matters — thank you for your support!
