Seneca Hills has been in existence since 1936 and is one of the oldest, if not the oldest camp of its kind, in western Pennsylvania. We offer a residential summer camp program for youth ages 5-18 and serve 17 counties in western Pennsylvania plus several in Ohio. From September through May, we also host retreats and conferences on most weekends. We sit on 250 acres and provide a beautiful setting for those who come here.
We exist to lead people, especially youth, to a vital personal relationship with and a life of dedicated service to Jesus Christ.

Programs Supported by Your Donations
The donations will help us accomplish a number of needed improvements to keep camp operating. All funds raised will allow us to get bunk beds for our NEW multipurpose Bathhouse and replace our waterlines with a new water main.
The Bathhouse was built this year and now we need to furnish the meeting space. Since 2016 we have had an average of 3 water line leaks per year causing significant disruptions to our programming and ability to serve groups.
Furnishing the meeting space and replacing the water lines will be a significant improvements for us. Moving these water lines is essential to both prevent future issues and allow us to make the Homestead usable once again.
These are necessary additions to the camp and your contribution will make a big difference in helping us to keep up with our growth. All contributions matter and will make a difference at the camp for many years to come!
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
We continue to feel the residual effects of the pandemic. Attendance is beginning to return to pre-pandemic levels. Our guest groups are beginning to return as well. Those decreases hit our revenue stream in significant ways, but are hopeful for the future. We appreciate your help in meeting these needs for camp.
