Camp Scholarships

Camp Scholarships from Kearney First

We have camp scholarships available!  Scholarships are available for Great Plains UMC camps and are on a first-come first-serve basis, so please register early! Priority for scholarships will be given to families who are members of Kearney First and will be awarded for half of the cost of each camp up to $100 as long as funds are available.

It is intended that no one who wants to attend camp be unable to do so due to lack of funding. Special considerations can be made in situations that exhibit great need. Such requests should be initiated with the Camp Coordinator and Student Ministry Team.

How Do I Apply?

Applying for the scholarship as easy as 1, 2, 3! Just follow the steps below!
