Cost Breakdown

Shasta Family Camp costs $25 per night for each camper, ages 5 and up.

What happens to that $25?


  • Most of it ($15) goes directly to the campground for maintenance and upkeep.
  • The rest ($10) is kept safe with the California-Nevada Conference of the United Methodist Church to pay for food and camp activities.
    • Of that $10, $8 is designated for camp food. This means that you pay less than $3 per meal.
    • The remaining $2 is saved for everything else, including crafts, music, worship, and hiking supplies.

How do I get the 10% discount

  • If you register for the entire week, 10% is automatically removed from your registration cost. This means that you pay $135 instead of $150. This saves you money and helps the organizers to be more prepared and ready.
  • Of that $135,
    • $90 goes to the campground
    • The remaining $45 pays for your food.

Why are young children free?

  • Infants are free because the campground does not charge for them and they do not eat a lot of our food.

Why do we welcome pets?

  • Pets are a part of the family and the Kingdom:
  • The Kingdom of God is more present, and more nearer, when we make room for those who cannot afford to pay high prices for religious retreats. This includes campers who cannot afford to leave their canine family members at home.
  • If we did not welcome pets, many humans would have to stay home to take care of their pets, instead of being a part of camp. Also, if we did not welcome pets, we would not be graced by their unique experiences and expressions of God’s Grace.
  • The inclusion of non-human animals, particularly trained canines, is a matter of participating in, and allowing for, the Kingdom of God.
