Camp Gift Certificates

Are you looking for a gift that will have a positive impact? Give the gift of Camp! Camp brings out the best in kids and youth by increasing confidence and self-esteem, social skills and making friends, independence and leadership qualities, and willingness to try new things. Church camp experience enriches learning about God and practicing faith traditions, encouraging a personal connection to God.

Gift Certificates may be purchased in any dollar amount. Parents and Grandparents may wish to gift an entire camp session, while aunts and uncles or friends might opt to gift a portion of the camp cost. The decision is up to you. Camp session costs range from approximately $135.00 for Winter Youth Retreats to $310.00 for week-long Summer Camp Sessions. Assistance with fees may be available through your church's campership program and through each camp's scholarship programs.

Gift certificates may be used for any youth camp session at Desert Southwest Camps, Mingus Mountain and Potosi Pines. Gift Certificates do not expire and are not redeemable for cash. To use, simply send in the Gift Certificate(s) along with registration forms for the particular camp session which your child will attend.

The link below is to an online form, on which you can use a credit card or an e-check (an authorized withdrawal from your checking account) to purchase a Gift Certificate. Or, instead of using the web links below, you may make your purchase using a personal check (made out to "Desert Southwest Conference") to Camping and Retreat Ministries at the postal address shown at the bottom of this website. Be sure and indicate that your check is for the purchase of a Gift Certificate.

If you have any questions, please contact the Camp Registrar at, (602) 266-6956 or (800) 229-8622. Thank you for your interest and support in our camping and retreat ministries.
