Summer Camp Programs


In 2015, we were excited to start our campership program to help send children and youth to our conference camps–West River and Manidokan. This year,we hope to send even more children and youth!

Attending church camp can be one of the most powerful, fun and faith-building experiences a young person can have.

Check out all the offerings at each camp by visiting the Camp and Retreat Ministries website.

In the past, our campers have gone to Manidokan, which is just into Maryland, just up river from Harpers Ferry.

We are blessed, at Arden UMC, by the generosity of so many people who allow us to help cover the cost of a week of camp for our children and youth. For information about our campership program, you can download the Arden UMC campership application form.

In addition, there are opportunities to volunteer as a counselor at Manidokan. Several Arden members have spent time at Manidokan as either volunteers or summer staff. For information about volunteering or working at Manidokan, contact Arden member and Manidokan director or check out the volunteer information page.
