February is Camp Month!

Summer camp registration is open! Click here...February is United Methodist Camp Month at OUMC!  Last year, 20 kids from Onalaska attended camp. Let’s see if we can get 25 campers this year!

Camps range from 3-6 days.  There are many types of camps: treehouse, video games, missions, backpacking, night owl, and classic camps. To help with the costs of camp, OUMC will donate up to $200 for each camper.  Each family is asked to pay a minimum of $50 towards that child’s camp.  The Wisconsin UM Annual Conference offers tiered pricing to assist in costs, as well as a payment plan if you sign up by March 1.  Annual Conference scholarships are also available and the process has been simplified this year.

Check out the bulletin board next to the resource room for more details and testimonials, or visit the table in the narthex to pick up a camp brochure and registration form. Some camps will fill quickly, so sign up soon!  For more info, visit www.wiumcamps.org

Thanks especially to OUMC’s Men’s Group for their soup supper fundraiser, which brought in around $1,400 for camp scholarships, and for their additional donation of another $300! Contact Jessica Gobel, Director of Children’s Ministries (kidmin@onalaskaumc.org), if you’d like to sponsor all or part of a camp scholarship.
