Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center

Incomplete forms and forms without a $60 nonrefundable deposit will be returned, and the camper will not be registered for their camp. Both camper and parent signatures are required for campers 10 years of age (at the time of registration) and older.
For your convenience, Visa & MasterCard can be used to pay summer camp fees.
Upon receipt of complete registration form and camper fee, campers will be sent a confirmation by mail or email. If you are placed on a waiting list, you will receive a waiting list confirmation card or email. Registrations will not be confirmed until the fee is paid.
Many churches offer scholarships for part of or all the camper fees. Contact your local church for more information.
Scholarships are available from Aldersgate Camp upon request and eligibility. Please call (606) 723-5078 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If for any reason a camper is unable to attend, please notify Aldersgate at (606) 723-5078 immediately so that his or her spot can be filled. A full refund (minus a $60 processing fee) will be made providing another camper can be substituted. “No shows” will not be refunded and will be expected to pay the fee in full (including the church’s portion.)

Housing for each camp program may change without notice due to unforeseen circumstances.
Primary coverage is the camper’s family insurance in case of accident or illness at camp. Limited secondary insurance is provided. Campers’ personal property is not insured.
Aldersgate utilizes canteen cards so that campers will not have to keep up with (or worry about losing) money. Their cards will be present at canteen, and the amount of the item purchased (soft drink, candy & snacks) will be deducted. The Canteen Card may be purchased during online registration or on the first day of camp at registration. There are two different denominations of cards to choose from: $4.5 and $7.50.
In addition to Canteen Cards, remember to bring some money to purchase a T-shirt, water bottle, or other seasonal items. T-shirts & Water bottles cost between $10 and $15 and may be purchased at registration or at the office on the last day of camp.
