2024 Summer Church Camp Information
Church Camp is important! It provides a place for children to grow in their faith, to build friendships, and to grow closer with God away from their homes. Children and youth need space to have fun, ask questions, develop their personalities, and to experience life and faith. And yes, that means away from their parents!
Attend Church Camp
Powell UMC is recommending ALL the camps through the East Ohio UMC Conference Camps & Retreats! There are lots of theme, week, length and location options! Sign your child/youth up today as spots do fill up fast for certain weeks. Plan and make Church Camp a part of your child’s/youth’s summer! Camp changes lives!
There are lots of great options – find the perfect church camp experience for your child.
Spots truly fill up fast! Register your child and pay only the deposit to secure their spot. Every child will receive a discount of $100 for a week long camp and $50 for a shorter program. At checkout, enter code POWELL24 and East Ohio Camps will deduct this discount. If you paid in full, we will send you a check for the discount. Church Camp is expensive so if your family needs further assistance, please talk to Ms. Rebecca. We have partial and full scholarships available for active families.
Register your child ONLINE through the East Ohio Camps. I cannot register your child for you as there are lots of questions only you can fill out. AFTER you register for church camp, fill out THIS FORM to let Ms. Rebecca know you are registered.

Church Camp is expensive. The average cost ranges from $450 – $600 per camper for a full week. At Powell UMC we take the faith development of children and youth very seriously. We want to encourage and support every child/youth that attends church camp with a $100.00 discount for a full week or $50 for a partial week of camp. We also want to provide partial and full “camperships” for any family that needs a little help!
