Camperships are our version of scholarships. They are available for campers who need financial support to attend camp. We typically provide a $200 camperships for our week-long, overnight programs and $50 for mini-camp.
If you would like more information, please email Registrar Julie Lutz or call 410-556-6900 x128. If you would like to complete a Campership Application, download the form and upload it to your online account when completed, or mail it in with your paper registration.
We also encourage you to check with your church or community organization. Most are very willing to help send a child to camp!
All registrations require a $50 non-refundable deposit per camper per program. Please note: your camper is not registered if we have not received the $50 deposit. Only registered campers are guaranteed a spot in the program. Registration payments are due in full by June 1st or at the time of registration if registering after June 1st.
Payment options include check/cash, credit card, and e-check (also known as ACH or direct debit). Did you know that you can help our ministry save money by paying with check or e-check? We do not charge credit card processing fees to our participants, and those charges can add up quickly for each transaction. By choosing to pay with e-check, you get the convenience of an immediate electronic payment (like a credit card), but with much lower processing fees for Pecometh. Thank you for considering payment via e-check!
It's easy to set up a payment plan. When you register, you can choose to pay the $50 deposit, then have the remaining balance paid automatically in interest free monthly payments between the time of registration and the June 1 payment deadline.
You can also manage the timing and amounts of payments. When you register online you automatically create an account that you can access at anytime to make online payments. That puts you in control of when and how you pay for camp with a balance payoff date of June 1.
Need more time to pay? Contact Julie Lutz here or at 410-205-5191 for more information about payment plans and payoff dates.
We understand money is tight, but if you’d like to save a bit, we can help! Everyone loves a discount!
Sibling Discount! Families registering more than one camper are eligible for a 10% discount on program fees for the second and all subsequent campers. This discount will be automatically applied when campers are registered at the same time.
Some discounts are available to certain eligible camper families. You may only apply one discount code per camper at the time of registration. Contact the camp office for more information or if your camper qualifies for more than one discount. Please note: if upon review you are not eligible to use the code, we will contact you with an updated invoice reflecting your adjusted balance.
Help us to register your friends as first-time campers and we’ll help you AND your friend. Here’s how it works:
This is a WIN-WIN-WIN: Your friend wins, you win, and Pecometh wins, too!
Skilled volunteers are a vital part of the success of camp each summer. In exchange for one week of service, we provide room, board, and a camp scholarship equal to the cost of a week of Riverside camp. The scholarship may be applied to program fees for the camper(s) of the volunteer's choosing. Many people volunteer on behalf of their child, grandchild, church or community member.
Our camp healthcare staff includes a volunteer, licensed (RN, APRN, or physician) professional who provides medical care, administers medications, and fulfills the standing orders of our camp physician. Candidates must provide a background check clearance, be licensed to work in the state of Maryland (or have a compact license), and experience working with children and youth is strongly preferred.
Our camp staff includes a weekly volunteer who serves as a Spiritual Life Coordinator (SLC). This person is typically a pastor or youth pastor who leads camper Bible Studies, evening vespers, Galilean, and closing worship services, and provides pastoral care and guidance throughout the week. Candidates must provide a background check clearance, evidence of relevant past experience, and experience working with children and youth is strongly preferred.
For more information about volunteering, please contact Augie Lankford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Life can be hectic, and we all know plans can change at the last minute! Please understand that when you cancel a registration, we have already done administrative work, hired staff, purchased supplies, paid for insurance, updated facilities and more based on our registration numbers. With that in mind, we hope to be fair to our families and to be good stewards of our ministry with our cancellation policies.
Please note that your camper's spot cannot be held without the registration deposit. The $50 deposit is non-refundable.
Your payment options include payment in full today, choosing a scheduled payment plan, paying the deposit and making payments in your account on your own schedule, or mailing a check (check payments should be received within 10 days of registration to ensure your camper's spot is held). If a church or agency will be paying your full balance, please select that option instead and email the registrar.
Regardless of the option you choose, you may log in at any time to make a payment and view your balance or scheduled payments.
Balances are due in full by June 1st.

Cancellations for campers who registered early between November 15 and March 31, and who paid in full, may receive a refund of payments made, minus the deposit, IF we are able to fill their space, or a refund of 50% of payments made, minus the deposit, if we are unable to fill their space. We are happy to transfer payments made, minus the deposit, to another session or season if there is availability.
Cancellations prior to June 1st may receive a refund of payments made, minus the deposit, ONLY if we are able to fill their space.
NO refunds will be made after June 1 for any cancellations (unless for a verifiable medical reason).
Campers leaving the program for any reason after it begins will still be responsible for the full program balance and will not be eligible for any refund.
