Nineteen Churches Send Kids to Camp on “First Camper” Scholarship

Nineteen Churches Send Kids to Camp on “First Camper” Scholarship

Nineteen youth around the Upper NY Annual Conference went to camp at no cost to their families on a “First Camper” Scholarship during the summer of 2012. Churches that have not had youth attend a summer program at one of the six camp & retreat centers in the UNYAC in at least five years, are embracing the opportunity to send a child to one week of camp for FREE

This scholarship was the brainstorm of Mike Huber, Director of Camp & Retreat Ministries. “It’s actually a no-brainer.” Huber said. “We know that spending a week at summer camp transforms kids’ lives and infuses energy into the life of the local church. If we can get kids to camp, it’s a great investment – and one to which CRM is committed.”

The following churches, representing 10 districts of the UNY Conference, sent “first campers” to summer programs at Aldersgate, Casowasco, Findley, Sky Lake and Skye Farm:

  • Amherst: Trinity UMC
  • Alexandria Bay UMC
  • Barneveld: Center Point Christian Fellowship
  • Blockville UMC
  • Branchport UMC
  • Chestertown UMC
  • Coopertown UMC
  • Dunkirk UMC
  • East Schuyler UMC
  • Edwards Chapel UMC
  • Hamburg UMC
  • Lakewood UMC
  • McGraw UMC
  • North Sanford UMC
  • Rathbone UMC
  • Watkins Glen UMC
  • West Schuyler UMC
  • Willet UMC
  • Willsboro UMC

Camp & Retreat Ministries says “Thank You” to these churches for making families aware of this opportunity!
