Last summer no camper was turned away from camp for financial reasons. This is made possible through generous gifts to our Alaina Mentkow Summer Camp Scholarship Fund that we use to help out where there is a need.
This year please prayerfully consider making a gift to a camper that will last a lifetime. Give the gift of a scholarship. A full scholarship for summer camp is $455.00. However, a gift of any size is always welcome. Every dollar raised is applied to camper fees.
Additionally, The Phoebe Needles Center needs to replace the chairs in the conference hall. These were purchased already used over fourteen years ago. They are old, worn out, and broken. Our goal is to purchase 120 new chairs by April 2017. For more information about the Alaina Mentkow scholarship and the chair fund, please click here.
Please send your contribution to the Center today or use our paypal button below.

The Bishop Light Fund was established in 2005 to honor A. Heath Light, Fourth Bishop of the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia. Bishop Light served the diocese from 1979-1996. We honor him for his dynamic character, warmth and genuine love for the people he has served throughout his ministry. This fund is established for the purpose of funding new and ongoing ministry at the Phoebe Needles Center. Learn more...
