Phoebe Needles Virtual Camp Program

COVID-19 Update

The Phoebe Needles Center, Inc. staff are continuing to monitor information regarding the current outbreak of COVID-19. We are paying close attention to the guidelines given by the federal government, government agencies in Virginia, the Center for Disease Control, the American Camp Association, and others. We encourage you all to stay safe, practice social distancing, and maintain proper hygiene.

The Phoebe Needles Center is the camp and conference center of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwestern Virginia, and as such, a Christian organization which invites and welcomes groups and individuals of all ages and faith backgrounds who seek,

  • an environment, facilities, and programs that nurture and challenge in a setting that is safe spiritually, emotionally, and physically;
  • an opportunity for transformative growth and the creative experience of God’s presence;
  • to build community and further relationships by actively living love, forgiveness, and service.

Thank you to everyone that joined us this past Saturday for the Music in the Mountain program @ Phoebe Needles! Thank you to Chris Prilliman for playing and gathering a great group of musicians!

Phoebe Needles staff and board members are very thankful for the Franklin County community, who come and support these events! These events are free, and by donating to the Phoebe Needles Summer Camp Fund, it allows PNC to give out scholarships to youth for camp over the summer and help cover the costs of program materials. Phoebe Needles Board Members have strived to keep the cost of attending summer camp affordable for ALL families and have never turned away a child due to financial concerns. Phoebe Needles believes that summer camp is crucial to a child's development, and by donating at a MITM program, you help keep that mission going!

Stay tuned to our Facebook page for the next MITM program!

JOIN US for our November 10th CLL program on Zoom.

For the time being, Phoebe Needles will continue the Center for Lifelong Learning programs via Zoom (and not in person) as a precaution during the flu season. Because these programs are online, there will be no charge for attending. Programs will return to in person CLL meetings in 2021. Remain up to date on the status of our CLL programs (switching back to in person meetings) in 2021 through Facebook and email.
