Shepherds stay with their children throughout the duration of camp (unless of the opposite sex, and then parents and children sleep in different cabins).

REGISTRATION

  1. Sign-in or sign up:
    • If you created an account last year, sign in using that username and password. Your information, including shot records, should still be in the system. Yay!
    • If you did not register last year, create a new account by entering information in the “New user sign-up.” Have your shot record, insurance, and other specific health information handy to input.
  2. The system will walk you through registering individual persons (children, youth & adults) for camps. Fill out all forms listed for your child/youth once presented with them.

REGISTRATION & PAYMENT DEADLINES
CHILDREN
Please complete all registrations by March 31. A deposit of $30 per camp is due by April 15. Costs listed above are full, early bird prices. Ideally, part of these costs will be covered by funds raised through the United Methodist Men’s Golf Tournament, as well as donations given to the Sonny Navarre Memorial Camp Fund. The percentage of cost you pay (perhaps only half, depending on money raised) will be determined the first week of April. If needed, you can set up a payment plan. If further assistance is needed to help your family pay for camp, please do not hesitate to ask, as scholarships may be available. If another payment is required, it will be due by May 31.

If you have questions, please free to contact Tessa Stutzman (tessa@choctawumc.com).

  • DO NOT PAY ONLINE; instead, pay the church by April 15.
  • Make all checks payable to “Choctaw UMC.” In the memo line, write the name of the camp/s for which you are paying.
