Camp Fowler provides opportunities each summer for children to come and catch a vision of what life can be like. Each year over 1,000 children will
Fowler ministers to and partners with a wide variety of organizations from the Lower Eastside Manhattan Girl's Club who start their summer program for their girls every summer at Fowler, the Capital Region Hospice's Camp Erin to the Hudson-Mohawk Lutheran Conference, a yearly gathering of Muslims who come on a 10 day "Tazkiyah" Retreat to a growing number of intentional spiritual retreats lead by trained Spiritual Directors. We also share our space and resources with the Capital Region Theological Center and numerous other non-profit groups.
Camp is subsidized by gifts that allow Fowler to charge approximately $100 less per camper than actual costs. Still, Fowler gives out between $10-15,000 in scholarship aid each summer to families of campers who need some financial help. This means that any child who wants to come to camp can come. Your generosity will allow this to continue.
In addition, we hold three major fundraisers each year. Below is the information if you want to be part of these celebratory events!

Last year, over 330 people came out to Glen Sanders for an evening of laughter,
conversation, music, and sharing.
Our event honored John, Cal, and Pete: the "three amigos" who worked so hard to finish the office for us last winter and spring.
The Harvest Gathering is an annual event held to raise support for the Fowler Ministries. This year over $6000 was raised with the Silent Auction and $30,000 from the offering taken at the end of the evening.
Thanks to Jen Kenneally, her family and friends (who she ropes into helping her!), Joanne for her wonderful displays of the auction items, Jordan White and the "band" from West Glenville Reformed, and "Route Fifty 5," which filled the haul with great brass music.
