If you need help paying for your week/s at camp, check with your local church. Churches are very supportive of United Methodist Camping, and many offer camp scholarships. Also, inviting friends to sign up earns you rebates that can be applied as credit toward your registration fee (up to the whole amount when multiple friends register!). See Rebate Coupon for details.
Michigan Area United Methodist Camping Scholarships
If you need additional financial assistance, you may apply for a scholarship from Michigan Area United Methodist Camping. Please apply early, as funds are limited! Have a pastor sign your completed application to confirm financial need, then submit to the Camp Registrar. Scholarship awards are not considered until a camper is registered and the $75 deposit has been paid.
Funds are limited. The maximum award per camper family is $100. The maximum number of scholarships allowed per church is five.
Supporting the Camping Ministry
With your help, we can grow our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ throughout the state. There are many projects at each of our camps, campgrounds and retreat centers that need the support of our friends. Check with the site directors to determine the priorities that your efforts could help. If you want to use the online crowdfunding platform for your local fundraising efforts that will support our ministries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for help setting up a fundraising team.
If posting your fundraising event on social media, be sure to tag us at @umcamping.org and we’ll share it!
If you are a facebook user, you can start your own fundraiser, for your birthday or any reason, right on the Facebook page of any of our sites. If you want to raise funds for anything other than scholarships, such as a specific capital fund drive, please contact the site director first.
