United Methodist Summer Camps 

Covenant participates in the Indiana Conference camping program.  To get complete information go to www.impact2818.org.  Registrations made after April 15th will have additional fees, so early registration is recommended.  Covenant will pay half the cost of camp for active participants of Covenant UMC. The scholarships will be based on the early bird registration fees.

Registration is simple, just follow these steps: 

  1. Secure an i-cash card from Marlene Fenstermacher
  2. Go online to register at www.impact2818.org
  3. Complete the registration process.  You will need to pay half the cost of camp at that time, so have a credit card ready. (You will input the i-cash account number during registration to take care of the church’s half of the cost.)
  4. Forward your e-mail confirmation to Marlene Fenstermacher .
