Rebates & Scholarships


$25-$50 Rebate

So you want to go to summer camp! Great! Do you need help paying for it? Register with a deposit, then invite some friends. If you are new to Michigan Area United Methodist Camping, use our New Camper Rebate Coupon to get $50 off a weeklong camp (most youth camps are eligible, but check the list below to make sure).

New and returning campers can qualify for additional rebates — up to the entire cost of camp — just by recruiting new campers. They can attend your camp or another one. If they attend a Mini Camp, the rebate for both the new camper and the recruiting camper is $25.

Local Church Scholarships

If you, or someone you know, need extra help paying for summer camp, check with your local church. Churches are very supportive of United Methodist Camping, and many offer camp scholarships.

Michigan Area United Methodist Camping Scholarships

If you need additional financial assistance, you may apply for a scholarship from Michigan Area United Methodist Camping. Download the form. 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 granted with individual consideration, but in most cases scholarship awards cover no more than 1/3 of the registration fee.


You can use our online crowdfunding platform to invite friends and family to sponsor you to go to camp. Learn more on our Fundraising page.

To be eligible, you must be a first-time Michigan Area United Methodist camper, or a returning camper who invites a first-time camper to camp; each may attend different sites/events. Siblings are eligible. Returning camper may invite/receive rebates up to the full registration amount. This coupon must be received by the Central Registrar by mail or email; it cannot be redeemed online. No rebates will be issued before the $75 minimum deposit is paid. Full week = 5 – 6 nights.
