Iowa Conference Offers Campership Scholarships

The Iowa Conference of the United Church of Christ recognizes the importance of experiencing God in many ways and in many places. One of these opportunities is through attending Church Camp. The Iowa Conference also recognizes that there are many barriers that may limit an individual’s ability to attend Church Camp: distance, schedules, finances, etc.

The Iowa Conference, in an effort to encourage as many individuals to attend Church Camp, has created the following Campership Policy.

The Iowa Conference will award a campership of $50 to the first 100 individuals who apply.

Each person will need to completely fill out the campership request form and have it signed by their pastor or board moderator/president.

The Church Camp attended must be a part of our Formula of Agreement partners’ denominations (United Church of Christ, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Presbyterian Church (PCUSA), the Reformed Church in America (RCA) or Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)). The Church Camp attended should be within the Iowa Conference boundaries.

Campership Request Forms should be returned to:

Notification of receiving a campership will be sent to the recipient and the campership will be sent to camp/church/individual.
