Thanks to your support, 340 kids are getting ready to have The Summer of a Lifetime right here at Hamilton Mill UMC.

We have approximately 340 campers registered for WinShape and it is NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN UP. If you or someone you know has a rising 2nd – 7th grader, please make sure they register for camp this week at

Please help us Pray for our WinShape campers!

Our pastors and staff have already begun to pray over these children and we hope you will join us. This year 140 campers are members of HMUMC. Approximately 140 are from other churches in the area. We also have a small percentage from out of town this year, and 32 campers do NOT have a church home. Please help us pray for each and every one of these beautiful children.

Thank you for supporting the WinShape scholarship fund!!

We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who made a donation to the scholarship fund and to our business sponsors:

Thanks to your support, we have been able to give 41 full scholarships and have offered 138 partial scholarships. We still have with 4 more sponsorship requests from children waiting to attend, so if you would like to help send one of these children to camp, please visit our website at to make a donation.

Here is a quote from a mother of two foster boys we offered scholarships to this year

“Thank you, thank you, thank you! Words cannot adequately express how grateful I am for this wonderful gift. It is my deepest desire that my boys grow up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord to be strong men of faith. Camp WinShape is committed to help children become strong well rounded Christians. I am so happy they will be at Camp WinShape this summer. May God bless you and all the good folks over there at HMUMC!”

Thank you ALL again for your generous and loving support! This is exactly what makes Hamilton Mill UMC a PLACE WHERE PEOPLE MATTER!

We need your help during the week of camp

In addition to scholarship donations, we could really use your help the week of camp, July 14 -18. We will need home baked treats, soft drinks and Gatorade for the WinShape staff.  We will also need volunteers to take their laundry home and wash and return it on Sunday morning and Thursday morning. In addition, the congregation is welcome any morning from 7:30 am – 8:00am to help welcome parents and greet campers.

Thank you again for your support! We are looking forward to an amazing week for these children; please pray for WinShape Camp – July 14 – July 18 at HMUMC!
