Payment Plan / Installments

If it is hard to pay for the cost of your child’s camp in one payment, you will be able to schedule a payment plan in the new online system. This has been a popular choice by many parents to break the fee down into installments.

As always, if you have any questions about this or have other registration questions, don’t hesitate to ask the Camp Registrar. Contact geneva@gocamping.org or call 503-802-9213


Camperships (Financial Aid)

Because the people of the Camp & Retreat Ministries are dedicated to providing Christian hospitality and learning to all persons, we believe no one should be turned away from camp due to financial need. The Camp and Retreat Ministry's campership fund is available to families facing financial stress.

A good place to start is to select the subsidized rate of camp where applicable, which includes an automatic scholarship.

We then encourage campers or parents to contact a local United Methodist or Episcopal church or other local organizations that may provide assistance to help get children to camp.

For those seeking additional assistance, a campership application should be made early, as funds are limited. We appreciate those who make this fund possible through their donations.

If you need financial assistance, print the campership form, fill it out, and send it in with your registration form.

We certainly want you to come to camp! Ask for special rate plan consideration for your family if you face special circumstances.

If you would like to make a donation to the Campership-Joy Fund which makes it possible for the camping program to provide these camperships, please check out the Camp and Retreat Ministries' donor page here!


Roommate Requests

A camper, if he or she chooses, may make one roommate request. The request must be mutual, and only one roommate request per camper will be recorded. We will honor roommate requests as space and program requirements allow.


Camp Information

You will receive a confirmation e-mail which includes a link to a detailed camp information page once your registration is submitted. If you do not receive this e-mail, please contact the registrar at (503)802-9213.

The page includes:

  • Health History Forms. There are separate forms for children/youth and adults. These forms need to be mailed to the camp (not the Conference Center) at least 10 days before camp starts.
  • Links to all the site pages
  • A starter list of what to bring to camp.
  • A PDF of camp policies.

Cancellation Policy

Site and program staffs are eager to welcome guests and work hard to prepare for everyone to arrive as expected. However, we understand that complications happen resulting in a need to cancel. If you cancel your registration to an event more than one week prior to the start of the event, you will receive your money back, less the minimum deposit amount ($50-$75 in most cases) which is non-refundable. Some of our events have larger deposits because we have larger expenses incurred when there are cancellations. Look for the minimum deposit amount listed or check with the registrar if you have questions about this.

Full refunds for cancellations within one week of the start of camp are generally not granted. In the case of extenuating circumstances, contact the registrar’s office at (503)802-9213 or geneva(at)umoi.org.

If Camp and Retreat Ministries should cancel your event, we will help you select another event that meets your needs. If another selection will not work for you, you will receive a full refund. Registering early helps avoid cancellations due to low enrollments!


Insurance

Insurance coverage for accidental injury or death and certain illnesses is provided for each camper and is included in the camp fee. Parents are expected to assume responsibility for all medical bills not covered by conference United Methodist or the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon summer camp insurance. There is no deductible.
