Camping and Retreat Ministries Donations

There are five different camp-related support funds to which you may choose to donate, either on a one-time or recurring basis. Each camp has a Scholarship Fund, which is for the more immediate scholarship needs of those planning on attending camps and retreats, and a Scholarship Endowment Fund, from which interest is used to help fund the Scholarship Funds. In addition, each of the DSC camps has its own endowment fund.

The links below are to online donation forms for each of these five funds, on which you can use a credit card or an e-check (an authorized withdrawal from your checking account) to make donations. Or, instead of using the web links below, you're welcome to send in donations to any or all of the funds below 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.

If you have any questions, please contact Randy Bowman at rbowman@dscumc.org, (602) 266-6956 or (800) 229-8622. Thank you for your interest and support in our camping and retreat ministries.
