A message from Holston Center Director, Jim Austin:

The Camp Needs Your Donations Now.

Holston Camp and Retreat Center relies on charitable donations to remain solvent. In a normal year, the HPCRC needs 25% to 30% of its budget to come from contributions. Our 2020 annual budget is approximately $470,000. This year our revenues have been severely impacted due to COVID-19. Group retreats have canceled and our summer program is severely limited.

•Group retreats, family reunions, and other annual events have canceled due to the pandemic.

•In order to influence young hearts, we keep our summer camp rates affordable for families. The camp is not a profit center.

•Due to aging infrastructure, we face unexpected expenses regularly.

Therefore, we are in a particularly vulnerable financial condition with no end of the pandemic in sight. We need substantial funding to offset our deficit.

The reality is that Holston Camp will close without significant financial support now. The Holston Presbytery cannot afford to support this ministry. Our future depends on our friends who have seen the face of God and recognized the love of Jesus Christ while on this beautiful property.

Holston Presbytery Camp and Retreat Center, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. Consider a recurring donation through the link below. You may also send gifts directly to our office. You may call me with any questions of concerns you have.

Blessings of health and happiness to you and your family.

Jim Austin, Director
