AMOUNT DONATED: $35,445.81
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
Your donations will help us build a much-needed two story bathhouse that will help both our summer camping program and our year-round conferences and retreats. This building will provide an additional 9 sinks, 9 showers, and 9 commodes to meet our growing needs.
In the summer, this building will also give us a dedicated space for our female camp counselors. In previous years, we have had to do some shuffling to give them an appropriate space.
During the rest of the year, this building will give us the increased bathroom facilities needed and provide us with additional meeting space that is needed for our conference and retreat attendees. The bathroom area will be constructed in a way that allows both men and women to privately use their part of the facilities.
This is a critical addition to the camp and your contribution will make a big difference in helping us to keep up with our growth. We have raised a significant amount of the funding so please don't feel like your contribution won't matter. All contributions matter and will make a difference at the camp for many years to come.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
The pandemic had an effect on all organizations including Seneca Hills. It reduced our summer camper numbers the last 2 years and that revenue stream and our retreat numbers also went down some. We have had to delay the building of this bathhouse, make do with what we have, and now we have been gathering momentum to complete this project which we expect to start later this year and complete by next summer if not sooner. We appreciate your help in meeting this need for the camp.
