You only have to read about the beginnings of the camp more than 40 years ago to know that the ministry of Uskichitto Retreat Center is built upon the selfless giving of every day people. What a legacy they have created in the past for us to enjoy today! May the future generations find that we have been faithful in carrying on that same legacy now! There are many ways in which everyone can do something to support URC:





    Monthly Gift Plans



Support URC through financial giving


The apportionment dollars from the United Methodist Church alone are not enough to keep the ministry of URC going strong! Expenses keep rising, and as we continue to make much needed repairs and improvements, we wouldn’t make it without the generosity of individuals and groups.


Do you believe in this ministry? Have you experienced first-hand the blessings of camp? Did you receive a call to mission or ministry through church camp? Do you have children or grand-children who have been touched through camp? Do you want to keep URC going, so others can benefit as you have? Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us to keep URC going strong?

You can easily make your tax-deductible donation to the camp as follows:

  • Give a one-time gift using the Online Donation page.
  • Give regularly every month, or annually to continually support this vital ministry. Imagine if 100 people decided to give just $10 per month. Putting their money together would raise $12,000 per year! Wouldn’t that be great! You can sign up to give regularly by going to the Online Donation page and following the simple directions.




Support URC through giving to Scholarships



Camper Scholarships

There are many families that cannot afford to send their children to camp. By giving a donation and “Earmarking” it on the Online Donation page to “camper scholarships” you can make sure that everyone can go to camp to learn more about Jesus, no matter what!


Summer Staff Scholarships

Several college age young adults give up so much of themselves to work at camp for the summer. Why? The biggest reason is because they know how important it is for children and youth to hear that Jesus loves them unconditionally. Why not sponsor one of our summer staff to work here. You can make a one-time donation of $1,700 on our Online Donation page, designating your gift to “Summer Staff Scholarship”.

Support URC through donating your skills and expertise

We are all gifted in something! Are you good with running a chainsaw, planting gardens, or plumbing? Is Spring Cleaning, painting or carpentry your thing? Whatever your talents or skill level, there is always a need for hardworking volunteers at camp. From folding our bulk mailings, to cleaning cabins, from repairing a broken window to clearing pine cones, from electrical work to replacing picnic tables there is something YOU can help with. If you would like to offer yourself, please contact us. If you have certain helpful skills to offer, let us know so we can contact you when needs arise.

Support URC through bringing a work group to the camp

Are you part of a groups that would like to come and work for a Saturday or a weekend? “Many hands make light work” Get in touch with us to find out what your group can do.



Support URC by using us

Support URC with your prayers

Above all, please commit to praying for URC.  First and foremost we are in the business of sharing the love of Jesus with countless hundreds of people every year.  This place and its purpose would not survive if it wasn’t for faithful pray-ers!  THANK-YOU!
