Your generous gift to the ministry of Pine Lake and Lake Lucerne allow us to provide life-changing experiences for our campers and guests throughout the year.

Through your gift you:

Provide opportunity to campers 

It has always been our policy that no one be denied the opportunity to come to camp because of their financial situation. Our campership program allows many campers each year to come to camp to grow in their faith and connect in our community.

Provide a sacred space for camp to take place

Your gift supports high quality programs, facilities, and staff that provide a holy setting for all to experience, grow in and learn about God’s love for them.

Ensure the legacy of United Methodist camping in Wisconsin

Over seven decades, countless campers and guests have encountered Christ at  Pine Lake and Lake Lucerne. Your support helps us continue into the future to continue to serve future generations.




Our Annual Campaign is an ongoing effort to raise funds to support the wholistic ministry of Wisconsin United Methodist Camps. Gifts to the Annual Campaign can be given online or through mail. Materials for the campaign will be sent to past donors in the Spring.


Join Wisconsin UM Camps on November 29th for an opportunity to unite for Giving Tuesday. For 2022, we are focusing solely on raising funds for our Camper Scholarship Fund.

For many families, the price of attending camp at Lake Lucerne and Pine Lake is more than ideal. It’s clear that this is a need, as in 2022, more than $16,000 of camper scholarships were granted to families wishing to attend camp.

Both sites and WIUM Camps are committed to the economic justice of making camp financially viable for all who wish to come. This fund is used to make sure that camp is affordable for as many people as possible. We hope that anyone who wants to come to camp, can come to camp. We have matching donors who have already committed to giving this year, to hopefully encourage you to discern your own call to give. If you or your church would like to consider being a large donor ($500 or more), please email Nick Coenen ( or Tanner Clark ( before Tuesday, November 29th so we can encourage additional giving through you!

We anticipate in 2023 that there will be a similar need, if not more of a need, as the economic state of the world continues to change and evolve. Please partner with us on November 29th as we strive to make sure every camper has the chance to build community and be equipped as disciples, so that all can experience the love and grace of God.

Giving Tuesday 2022 is November 29, 2022

Information about this year’s project will be distributed largely through social media for Pine Lake and Lake Lucerne.
