The services and presentations were based on Genesis Chapters 1 -2 -3 “Gods Creation” geared at “Building a Better You.” 

Tents were set up on the front lawn of the campus overlooking Lake Oahe.

Activities included a hay ride, cream can feed, and swimming the first day; packaging 16, 848 separate meals to be sent overseas for “Kids Against Hunger”, and a Christian band “Sondogs” on the second

Over 50 adults and youth participated to make the 1st Lutheran Extravaganza Adventure Party (LEAP) a great success.

LEAP team leaders are hoping to make this an annual 4 day event for Christian youth throughout the state of South Dakota.

Plans are being put together to have another youth gathering in 2013.
