Creating a budget is a crucial part of leading a camp or retreat in the Ohio Conference UCC. All programs should have fees that cover ALL their anticipated expenses OR the director of the camp/retreat should find additional support from an individual or local church to help cover additional expenses.
For summer camps: Our base summer camper registration includes $10/camper to cover program expenses. To create your total program income, multiply $10 x number of campers you anticipate. Your expenses for program supplies and offerings should not exceed this amount.
For non-summer retreats and events: Your registration fee must cover your budgeted expenses including all housing, meals, and other program expenses. Here is a list of the expenses charged at Pilgrim Hills for Ohio Conference UCC camps and retreats:
