Summer Camp Fund

Last summer, no camper was turned away from camp for financial reasons.  This is made possible through generous gifts to our Summer Camp Fund. Within this fund, we have the 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 a gift to contribute to our camp operations and scholarships.   A full scholarship for summer camp is $460.00.  However, a gift of any size is always welcome.  Every dollar raised is applied to camper fees and camp operating fees.

Bishop Light Fund

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…
