Sheldon Calvary Camp was founded in the tradition of giving. In 1936 the widow of Harry E. Sheldon, founding partner of then Allegheny Steel, donated the land in memory of her late husband to establish Sheldon Calvary Camp. It is in that tradition of giving that Calvary Camp continues. Generations of friends and families have given and continue to give gifts to the camp in many different ways. Here are four ways in which you can help share your resources and support the tradition of gift giving at Sheldon Calvary Camp:
A great many people volunteer their time to help Calvary Camp each year. If you have ideas or are interested in volunteering time, please let us know.
Although Calvary Camp is a ministry of the Episcopal Church, less than 2% of the camp’s budget is subsidized by the church. Also, the camp remains committed to keeping down the cost of attending camp and to the awarding of full and partial camperships to those children who come from less affluent homes. It is our goal that cost is never a reason a child cannot attend camp. Therefore, Calvary Camp relies on the generosity of past, present, and future members of the community to contribute towards the camp’s financial viability.
There are several ways to financially support Calvary Camp:
Donations can be given any time online or mailed to the camp.
