Campership Information
Cross Trails Ministry
Cross Trails Ministry

No one should miss out on a camp experience because of money! Cross Trails Ministry has a long standing policy of providing financial aid in the form of camperships to summer campers and programmed retreaters.

A typical campership is up to one half of the camp or retreat fee. However, campers and retreaters who need more financial aid should not be discouraged. Just indicate the amount you need and we will work with you to get a sponsored camperships.

Sponsored camperships fund up to the whole camp or programmed retreat fee. Sponsored campership funds are given by donors who wish to “sponsor” a camper or retreater’s experience. The only additional requirement for a sponsored campership is a post experience thank you note from the camper or retreater to the sponsor.

Camperships are not available for rental retreats or entire groups. They are granted on an individual or family basis, based on need.

Camperships for Individual Summer Campers or Programmed Retreaters
To grant a campership we need to know:
– The full name of each registered camper or retreater. Family campers are eligible.
– The summer camp site, dates and program, or programmed retreat it would be applied to.
– The amount of money each camper or retreater can afford to pay.
– The amount of money the congregation of that person(s) can afford to pay, if any.
– The total amount requested.

The above information can be written in a letter or filled in on a campership request form available from our office or found on our webpage.
