Who can go to camp?
Ages 4-11 with parent, or Ages 7-17 without parent
What does it cost?
Costs vary depending on camp chosen.
How much will Avery UMC pay?
We will cover HALF the registration fee for each child who registers in connection with Avery UMC and participates in fundraisers. After we provide each child with half of their registration fee, if there is still money left over it will be divided evenly among registrants. For family-priced camps, the Avery Campership will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
In order to receive an Avery Campership, the child must participate in the following fundraisers:
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, Tue. March 5, 4-7 pm
Bunny Brunch, Sat. April 20, 9:30 am
We may have additional fundraisers if there is a need.
Contact the church office to volunteer with fundraisers.
Avery UMC Camperships aren’t just for members!
We will gladly help pay for any child in the Washington area who wishes to attend summer camp through the Western PA United Methodist Church. All they need to do is register with us and participate in the fundraisers.
