The Phoebe Needles Center
Since its beginning in 1999, we have served nearly 200 young people each summer using a staff of 8 to 10 college age counselors. In many ways the developmental experiences have as profound an impact on the staff as they do on the campers. We seek to make the camp available to all young people without regard to their ability to pay. Our camp fee for 2013 is $200 per camper. This includes six days and five nights of a residential camp, all meals, program supplies and activity fees. The cost to the Center is approximately $350 per camper. We rely on contributions from individuals, churches, businesses, civic organizations and grants from foundations to fund the difference between the fee charged and the actual cost. We also offer scholarships to approximately 30% of those who come to camp.
