U.M. ARMY Refund Policy

As U.M. ARMY and local churches are all adapting to an uncertain and changing world, the U.M. ARMY Board has enacted a new, uniform Refund Policy in an effort to establish financial expectations that protect both U.M. ARMY and the local church. Please contact your Regional Director if you have any questions. 

 

We look forward to being in ministry with you!

 

Fee and Payment Schedule:

Registration Fee Per Person Per 7 Day Week - $275

Registration Fee Per Person Per 6 Day Week - $265

Registration Fee Per Person Per 5 Day Week - $225

Group Registration requires a $25 Application Fee to offset pre-camp administration costs and use of the online system

  • Within 30 days of registration – Group Deposit equaling $75 per person due (non-refundable)
    • If registering on/after March 1, deposit ($75/person) payment is due at time of registration
  • April 1 - Group Count Covenant -- Regional Director will confer with Participating Church Coordinator to complete Covenant and confirm participation numbers
  • May 1 - for June camps; June 1 - for July camps - Final payment due

The number of participants in a group may be increased (as availability permits) or decreased, with confirmation from the Regional Director.  Paid individual participants may request to be transferred to a different week within the same mission season.  Any and all requests must be submitted in writing (email, fax, or letter).

In the event of a group cancellation before April 1st, the full Registration Fee, minus the group deposit, can be refunded. After April 1, any individual cancellation that decreases the number committed to in the covenant described above, will result in the entirety of that individual deposit being forfeited without written approval of the Regional Director.

Any cancellation of a group or participant within two (2) weeks of camp will not receive a refund.

For questions about this policy, please email or call your specific Regional Director.

Extenuating Circumstances

In the event of a cancellation of mission weeks by U.M. ARMY, a full refund will be provided upon request.

In the event of the necessity of an individual participant cancellation for circumstances, including, but not limited to illness, accident or unforeseen emergency, transfers of funds to the remaining mission week balances may be considered at the discretion of the Regional Director.

Youth Advisory Board

Each year U.M. ARMY-Rio TX is blessed by the selfless time and gifts that our youth advisory board members (aka YABbers) provide.

YABbers attend two mission opportunities each summer – one with their home church and another as a peer leader. Each day they train in a different leadership position, learning the skills and gaining the experience necessary to lead every aspect of the mission week.

Our goal is that these students will one day be directors!

Potential YABbers must meet the requirement of attending at least one year of High School U.M. ARMY and then go through an application process that includes recommendations from their youth pastor.

Look out for our next YAB Team!
