Scholarships and Financial Assistance 
Here are 4 places you can check for what is commonly called “camperships.” These are scholarships or financial assistance to summer camps.

1. Local Church Camp Funds
Many churches have scholarships to summer camps to encourage their youth to go to a camp. Check with your pastor or youth director for options.

2. District Camp Scholarships
In the United Methodist church, groups of churches are organized into Districts. Many districts also have camping scholarships that are waiting for someone to claim them. Check with your church office to find out who to contact in your District for these funds.

3. Conference Financial Aid Application
Financial Aid Request Forms are available from the Camp Office or your local United Methodist Church office. They have aid available to youth who have a financial need. Here is the Conference Financial Aid Form. 

4. Lakeside Institute Scholarships
If you don’t go to church or need further assistance, Lakeside Institute has a scholarship fund supported by youth who have gone to camp in previous years. They want to see you at camp! For more info about these scholarships, contact the Deans of Lakeside Institute.

This year at camp, campers and staff raised over $800 towards campership funds. By surpassing their goal of $350, all of the Connor/Conner’s at camp dressed up and jumped into Lake Erie to celebrate!
