Friends Annual Fund

“Look for the helpers. You will always find people helping.” – Mr. Rogers
Help sustain the Camp Stevens mission of transformation by contributing to the Friends Annual Fund, which helps offset the costs of running our various programs and maintaining the facilities. Your one-time gift will help reach our goal of $50,000 in 2016. A monthly gift will help your generosity do even more good.

  • $10 month or $120 a year helps provide one camper a week of family-style meals made from scratch.
  • $25 a month or $300 a year helps protect a climber with new professional safety equipment.
  • $50 a month or $600 a year helps host a volunteer chaplain as they guide the summer in faith.
  • $100 a month or $1,200 a year helps enrich natural spaces to grow fresh produce onsite.



There are so many children who would greatly benefit from a week in a peaceful, loving place where trained and caring counselors help them make new friends, discover more of their potential, deepen their relationship with God, and learn to love and care for nature – if only their parent(s) could afford to send them! But with your help, they can have this valuable experience.

The Camp Stevens Campership Endowment Fund invests in the long-term future of our children. A portion of the income is reinvested each year to keep pace with inflation; the balance is used to help needy children each summer. It currently costs $650 to send a child to Camp Stevens for one week. Gifts of any amount can be designated to this fund, but a gift of $13,000 will provide sufficient income to send one child to camp each summer in perpetuity.

Refugee Campership Drive
