PINE VALLEY BIBLE CONFERENCE (AKA PINE VALLEY CAMP)

SERVING LAWRENCE COUNTY

AMOUNT DONATED: $164,312.87

We are a year-round faith-based camp featuring a residential summer camping program and other year-round programs for at-risk and underprivileged youth ages 6-15 from Lawrence County and the surrounding area. We are one of very few camps that targets this underserved group whose families' income falls below the federal poverty guidelines.

Our mission is "to rebuild broken lives through Jesus Christ." By teaching life skills, life principles, some basic job skills and presenting the gospel message, we aim to be a place of fun, hope, healing and transformation that prepares these youth to become healthy responsible adults.

FUNDRAISING GOAL: $50,000

  Programs Supported by Your Donations  

Your donation will be used to support our summer camp program, the building of our new dining hall, and/or for general operating expenses.

1) Summer camp runs from mid-June to mid-August and features many fun activities like swimming, hiking, fishing, archery, canoeing, basketball, wall climbing, biking, horseback riding, and more. We teach life skills and life principles like teamwork, taking personal responsibility, and how to make wise decisions. We teach basic job skills like cooking, cleaning, and landscaping to select teens. We also share the gospel message of Jesus Christ and give the children the opportunity to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior without pressuring them. We do not practice discrimination in any way.

2) The dining hall serves as the heart and hub of the camp and this will allow us to seat 300 at one time and serve more youth. We have raised half of the $5 million needed and have started this project. All donations are important to this project.

3) General operating expenses include utilities, maintenance, salaries, and all other expenses incurred in running the camp on a daily basis. Thank you for whatever area you choose to support!

  Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help  

The pandemic limited our attendance to 444 last year (usually close to 700) and that resulted in less funding. We also suspended our fall fundraiser due to caution regarding social distancing. Grants from foundations and companies continue to be extremely competitive with the rise of many other reputable causes and issues and more organizations applying for somewhat limited grant funds. Inflation has also become a major issue as purchasing power has been eroded. As an example, the cost of the dining hall went up 66%.
