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.
Perhaps your church or organization would consider supporting the mission of Camp Fowler. Checks may be made out to "Camp Fowler" and may be sent to: 1790 Grand Blvd, Schenectady, NY 12309.
If you are an individual wishing to make a tax deductible contribution, know that we will make every effort to be good stewards of your gift. We strive to keep our overhead low while providing the best possible experience in both camping and retreating. And know that Fowler welcomes children regardless of creed, color, or nationality. On behalf of all the children who will come to camp, we thank you in advance.
