Many churches help with a scholarship for your camper. Please indicate the amount of the church scholarship on the registration form. Please contact your church if you do not know the correct amount. Scholarship amounts DO NOT include canteen money or other fees unless otherwise indicated from your church or organization.

Inspiration Hills offers scholarships for campers in need of assistance. Scholarships must be applied for by using the Scholarship Application Form by April 15th. Scholarships typically do not exceed 1/3 of the total camp fee. We do not want finances to be what prevents a child from attending camp. Please fill out the Scholarship Application Form completely and submit it within 3 days of your online registration.  Scholarship Applications may be found by Clicking Here! You may download and print or email the application. Email address: ihills@inspirationhills.org Photos of filled out forms will NOT be accepted!

After registering online you will receive an email confirming that you have registered your camper(s). Parents are responsible to make sure they have registered their camper(s) for the correct date and camp. You may log in anytime to your online account and check camp dates, amounts due, and canteen money.

Cancellation Policy

The $75.00 minimum registration fee, non-refundable, will hold your camper(s) spot until May 15th, then payment is due in full. After May 15th, each registered camper that cancels will be subject to a $125.00 Administration Fee and only partial refunds will be given. If your child is sick within 2 weeks of or during camp, partial refunds will be given minus the $125.00 Administration Fee.

What to Bring:

Please, no electronics or phones while at camp.

Canoeing: 

Canoeing is included in the registration price for 4th-6th Grade camps. Campers are asked to sign up to canoe on the Tuesday they are at camp. Please speak with your camper prior to him/her attending their week of camp about signing up for canoeing.

Canteen Money

Snacks and Souvenirs can be purchased during camp. Our Staff attempts to have the "Canteen" open each day for purchases. We suggest $10-$25 for week long camps and $8-$15 for 3 day camps. Think generously! Unspent money on your child's canteen money will be used for Camper Scholarships. Please tell your camper(s) their amount of money for their time at camp. Please remind them to use it during free time. Canteen money will be listed for the camper at the Canteen under the campers name.

You can add canteen money at the time of registering, or you can add it the day of drop off with your camper.  Campers are allowed to have cash on them while at camp, but not recommended and encouraged for them to deposit into their canteen account.

Modest clothes without offensive wording and modest swimsuits (one piece for girls and swimming trunks for boys) are required. Swimmers with 2 piece swimsuits will be asked to wear a shirt over swimsuit if needed.
