Lutherans Outdoors in South Dakota Summer Camps



LOSD operates Christian summer programs for young people at five campsites: NeSoDak, Klein Ranch, Joy Ranch, Outlaw Ranch and Atlantic Mountain Ranch. Boys and girls choose from Bible, leadership, music and confirmation programs at NeSoDak in Waubay. Camps at Atlantic Mountain Ranch and Outlaw Ranch, both situated outside Custer in the Black Hills, combine worship with such outdoor pursuits as hiking, riding, backpacking and canoeing. Located in Isabel, Klein Ranch provides ranching and equestrian experiences on an authentic Western horse ranch. Joy Ranch is a barrier-free camp and retreat center on the shores of Lyle Lake.
