Rebates & Scholarships


$25-$50 Rebate

So you want to go to summer camp! Great! Would you like to reduce the cost? Register with a deposit, then invite some friends and get them to register, too. Use our First-Time Camper Instant Rebate Coupon to get $50 off a week-long summer camp (most youth camps are eligible, but check the list below to make sure). If you are new to Michigan Area United Methodist Camping, mail in the coupon to get the instant rebate (with our without a returning camper sponsor).

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 (2 – 4 nights,) 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 Scholarship Application. 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 to $100 per family. Churches that register several campers may receive up to $50 per camper ($25 for mini-campers) up to a maximum of $500. Scholarships are granted on a first-come, first-served basis, so apply early.
