On the shores of quiet waters, under skies of blue,
There’s a place called CAMP CONCORDIA where we meet friends true.
Thru the day and vesper ev’ning and all thru the night,
Here God is our loving Father, Guiding us aright.
Here we share our past together, here we lived today,
Here we dream of blessed futures, going on life’s way.
We have shared some tears together, and we’ve shared some fun;
We have known whatever happens God’s will e’er be done.
In this camp our God draws closers, reaching down from heav’n
And in prayer our hands we offer, trusting just in Him
In the halls and ‘round the camp fires, we find rest and peace.
CAMP CONCORDIA, we will love thee ‘til our life shall cease.
These words were penned by Camp Concordia's first Pastoral Advisor, Rev. Richard J. Scholtz, first Pastor of Mt. Olive Lutheran Church, Grand Rapids.
