Mar-Lu-Ridge is a year-round outdoor ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America situated in the beautiful Catoctin Mountains of central Maryland. We minister through our summer camp, year-round retreat and conference center, and programs offered throughout the year.

Mission Statement: We welcome all people to a mountain-top experience of Christian community that changes lives, makes disciples, builds friendships, and encourages care of God’s creation.

People of All Faiths Are Welcomed! Rules for acceptance and participation in Mar-Lu-Ridge programs and use of facilities are the same for everyone without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, handicap, age, or gender. We are open to anyone, so invite your friends, co-workers, partners and see what Mar-Lu-Ridge has to offer to you.

We are located in scenic Frederick County, Maryland.  An hour from Baltimore and Washington, DC.
