Camp Chippewa is a United Methodist Camp and Retreat Center whose mission is to provide an atmosphere in a simple outdoor setting where individuals can:

  •  experience the presence of God in nature;
  • form a relationship with Jesus Christ and others;
  • nurture one’s journey as a disciple; 
  • experience spiritual & personal growth & renewal;
  • and to serve for the betterment of God’s world.

First Church wants to help our kids and youth have an amazing camp experience
and will offer scholarships to those in grades K-12 by contributing up to $200
to their camp experience through the 2024 Summer Camp and Institute Scholarship.

Register for a Summer Camp or Institute session.
Then apply for the scholarship at least two weeks prior to camp.

June 24-June 29 will be packed with powerful worships, impactful small groups, and meaningful workshops. Instituters will stay in the dorms at Baker.
