Providing Financial Support for Summer Camp
The camp fees individuals, families and churches pay help provide for daily room and board for campers and volunteer staff. The fees also help with program material and equipment costs. For some events, transportation must be provided, as well as fees paid to adventure, sports & other contractors. Except for a limited number of campsite staff and students on Summer Program Staff, our events are generously staffed by an army of Christian volunteers. These volunteers – deans, counselors and special program resource people – make our summer program possible. Our prices are at or below the average for similar camp programs, and we do everything possible to keep costs down, while maintaining the best possible program, safety and spiritual standards for your child’s mountaintop experience at Jumonville.
Sources of Financial Aid
There are two primary sources of financial aid.
- United Methodist Church or Other Church Camperships If you are a member of a United Methodist Church, you should check with your own church to see if they have any money available to help you to attend a summer camp event at Jumonville. Many United Methodist churches specifically raise money for children, youth, and families to attend the conference camping program. If you do not attend a United Methodist Church, you may want to check with your church to see if they have any money available to help you to attend a summer camp event at Jumonville.
- Jumonville Kidz2Kamp Campership Program Financial aid is available through Jumonville’s Kidz2Kamp Program. These camperships are to help campers and their friends who need additional assistance to be able to afford to go to camp.
Jumonville will also provide $100 camperships (shorter events pro-rated) available for families sending more than one child to camp on a first-come, first-served basis. (Family Discounts are already included in the prices of C.A.T. Camp and Mommy, Daddy & Me events.) The camperships are available to the second or more campers, who are siblings of the same household. Full-week campers will count as the first camper.
