Welcome to Lutherdale!

We are so excited that you chose us for your international experience this summer!

This page will give you the basic information that you will need in preparation for your arrival.

We're here to help!

We know that arriving and working here will be more complicated than for our domestic staff. If you have questions, please ask as soon as they come up. 

ARRIVAL

Please schedule your arrival for sometime May 28 through May 31 to give time to move into camp before the first day of training

A member of the Lutherdale staff will pick you up from the airport; flying into Milwaukee Mitchell International (MKE) is ideal.

 

Chicago O'hare International (ORD) or Midway International (MDW) are alternatives if you cannot find a suitable flight into MKE. We strongly recommend that you contact us before finalizing flights.

PAPERWORK

Some forms in your CAMPWISE account will be replaced by those from the recruitment system you used to apply (e.g. Camp America, IENA), and you will not need to fill out the CAMPWISE version.

  • e.g. Background Check, doctor’s form

  • Do not complete the tax/payment forms until your arrival and visit to the social security office.

WHAT WE PROVIDE

If you are joining us from another country, we know it can be hard to bring everything with you. For that reason, Lutherdale will provide:

  • Any transportation you need

    • We will coordinate with other staff to make sure you can ride into town during session breaks if desired.

  • Bed linens

  • Towels

THINGS TO REMEMBER

  • Prescriptions should be filled for at least three months. Talk with your doctor.

    • It can be difficult to fill prescriptions from other countries once in the US.

    • Camp will provide over-the-counter medication.

      • e.g. Antihistamine, Ibuprofen, Dimenhydrinate, Acetaminophen​​​

  • This packing list is an overview of what you should plan on bringing.

SOCIAL SECURITY

A member of the perfessional team will take you to the Social Security office within the first week of your time at Lutherdale to make sure you can be paid appropriately.

For that meeting, you will need:

  • Passport

  • Form SS-5

    • We will work on this form together once you arrive.

  • Form I-94

    • This will be created upon your arrival to the US.

  • Form DS-2019

    • Please bring this with you - it should have been issued to you by your program as part of your visa application. Please let us know if that is not the case.

​That’s it!

Get ready to join in, get trained, and experience Life Changing Adventure!
