Research has shown that youth that participate in a camp experience are nearly 70% more likely to say that a church home is important to them later in life. Many pastors, youth directors, and other ministry professionals cite an experience at camp as critial to their call to full-time ministry.
Our conference churches are our primary front-lines supporters in helping get youth and families to camp.
Below are resources to help that process.
CONFERENCE CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS
1) Tiered Pricing Support
When you register for camp, start by selecting Tier A (if available). This price gives you a subsidy with no additional forms to fill out or contacts to make.
2) Camper Payment
We know that people value what they pay for, and we want you to value your camp experience. It is highly unusual for us to provide a full scholarship to a camper. We trust that you know your situation better than we do, and will be honest in paying what is reasonable for you. (This line often ranges from $50-$250)
3) Local Church Scholarship
Churches are usually excited to hear that you want to go to camp! Talk to a pastor to see if the church (or a few members) can help provide a scholarship for you.
4) Conference Scholarship
For generations, people have been donating to our scholarship fund so that you can join us this summer! If you need further support, complete this form. Then gather all payments, your registration form, and this paper, and send it to: WIUMCamps, 750 Windsor St., Suite 203, Sun Prairie, WI 53590. Online registration is also possible and includes all of the neccesary forms for applying for a scholarship!
