Camp Scholarships


Dear Campers and their Families,

We have an exciting opportunity for your consideration this summer! Being able to attend CAMP. The Northeast Ohio United Methodist Church (http://www.eocumc.com/camps/index.html)  has three camps:

·       Camp Aldersgate http://www.campaldersgate.org/summer_camp/

o   Open House April 18, 2021

·       Camp Asbury https://campasbury.org/

o   Open House April 25, 2021

·        Camp Wanake. http://www.campwanake.org/

We are offering full scholarships to one week of camp for those currently enrolled in 6th through 12th grades. Applications are DUE April 26 to the church office (Granger United Methodist Church, 1235 Granger Road, Medina, Ohio 44256). Funding is limited. Also, due to COVID spaces are limited to all camps, so we are encouraging early registration so campers may have their first choice of camp this summer.

Those who have been awarded scholarships will be notified on or before April 19, 2021 and expected to register before the close of the Early Bird Registration (May 1, 2021). Those who register for camp by May 1, 2022 will be refunded the forty dollar registration fee. The balance of the fees will be paid by the scholarship, if awarded.

 Those who receive a camp scholarship will be asked to participate in a focus group to create a visual that represents their experience at camp. This visual (most likely a short video) will be shared with the congregation online, Facebook and during in person worship service in late August/early September.

If you have questions about a camp or camp program, please contact the camp (see e-mails above). Questions regarding this CAMP Scholarship application may be directed to Susan Olson, website@grangerumc.org

Adult Mentors needed as well as Youth

A youth mission trip is planned for Granger United Methodist Church and will focus on mentoring youth in basic life skills while cleaning and repairing Camp Aldersgate (Carrollton, Ohio).  There will be informal devotions each evening as well.  Youth currently enrolled in 6th grade thru 12th  grade are invited, and adults of all ages are needed to mentor and chaperone our youth.  Conrad Olson will serve as the leader of the group.  He has personally been on approximately 15 weeklong youth mission trips and have been group leader on at least 5 of these trips. He has also served as a driver on numerous prior mission trips. This trip will be three days and two nights at Camp Aldersgate (Carrollton, Ohio) August 27-29, 2021 (Friday thru Sunday). Expenses will be covered by Granger United Methodist Church youth fund and a grant from The Granger Church Foundation. We will be taking a large passenger van from the church to Camp Altersgate and return to the church on Sunday the 29th.  There is ample parking at the camp for anyone who may  wish to drive separately. Space is limited so e-mail Conrad and let him know you are interested in participating in this opportunity. Adults are needed to mentor youth in simple home repair tasks; however, no particular skills are required so do not worry about that.  Each youth will be provided with a basic home repair tool kit and mentored on at least one basic repair skill during their time at Camp Aldersgate. There is NO COST for youth or adults for this mission trip. 

Youth and Adults need to contact Conrad G. Olson at conradolson275@yahoo.com and let him know you are interested in participating in this mission trip.
