Campership Application Form

The Camp & Retreat Board feels strongly that everyone who wants to attend camp can do so, and that no camper will ever be turned away because they can’t afford to pay. Camp Minnesota provides campership funds to individuals who need them most, based on the individual’s and family’s needs. Our expectation is that your local church, personal funds, other sources of support and conference support will combine to cover the registration cost for one conference camping event of your choice. Please allow enough time for this application to be reviewed prior to your camp experience.

Please complete all fields. Incomplete applications may not be accepted. Campers with no connection to a local church may contact the Camping Office for information on available support. Some special limitations may apply to camp events held outside the Minnesota conference. Your privacy in this matter is important and we will do all we can to maintain that integrity.


I understand that MN UMC Campership funds are limited and will be granted on an individual need basis.   I verify that the information on this application is true and correct.

We hope to see you this summer at camp, a life-changing and faith-shaping experience, and promise to do whatever we can to make this possible!

God’s blessings,
