Rebates & Scholarships

$25-$50 Rebate

So you want to go to summer camp! Great! Register with a deposit, then invite some friends and get them to register, too. Use our First-Time Camper Instant Rebate Coupon to get $50 off a week-long summer camp (most youth camps are eligible, but check the list below to make sure). If you are new to Grace Outside or Michigan Area United Methodist Camping, mail in the coupon to get the instant rebate (with or without a returning camper sponsor).

New and returning campers can qualify for additional rebates — up to the entire cost of camp — just by recruiting new campers. They can attend your camp or another one. If they attend a Mini Camp (2 – 4 nights,) the rebate for both the new camper and the recruiting camper is $25.

Local Church Scholarships

If you, or someone you know, need extra help paying for summer camp, check with your local church. Churches are very supportive of United Methodist Camping, and many offer camp scholarships.

Michigan Area United Methodist Camping Scholarships

If you need additional financial assistance, you may apply for a scholarship from Michigan Area United Methodist Camping. Download the Scholarship Application (coming soon). Have a pastor sign your completed application to confirm financial need, then submit to the Camp Registrar. Scholarship awards are not considered until a camper is registered and the $75 deposit has been paid. Funds are limited. Scholarships are granted on a first-come, first-served basis, so apply early.


Returning camper receives the same rebate as the first-time camper. To be eligible, you must be a first-time Michigan Area United Methodist camper, or a returning camper who invites a first-time camper to camp; each may attend different sites/events. Returning camper and first-time camper may only use 1 rebate per camping season. No rebates will be issued before the $75 minimum deposit is paid. (Full week = 5 – 6 nights. Partial week = four nights or fewer)
