Give Back to White Lake

Do you love White Lake? Has White Lake had an effect on your life?

Please consider giving back to the ministry of White Lake so that we can continue to touch the lives of those in the Atlantic & St Lawrence Presbyteries as well as others in the RPCNA who attend camp. Though time, donations, and prayer you can support the ministry of White Lake!

Time: Did you know that camp would not be possible without many people donating their time? It takes many hours of work to maintain the camp and keep it running smoothly. Consider giving some of your time to camp by attending work days and other events.

  • Our next work day is scheduled for Saturday, May 5
    • Please join us to complete the many tasks required to get camp up and running for the season. Many hands make light work. Housing will be available for those who wish to spend the night Friday or Saturday night!
    • Please let Peter Robson, peter_robson@boces.monroe.edu, know if you plan to attend.

Donation: Did you know that without donations from churches and individuals, White Lake would not be possible. It is only by your support that we can continue to provide Christ centered teaching, maintain the camp, and provide great experiences for our young people and families. Consider making a financial donation to camp. All donations are tax deductible.

  • Donation checks should be made out to White Lake Camp and mailed to Sharon Robson 195 Wilkinson Road, Macedon, NY 14502.
  • Donations can also be made through PayPal on the White Lake Camp website.

Prayer: Your prayers are highly valuable. Please keep camp in prayer as we prepare for the 2018 camping season. Please keep the following in your prayers:

  • Camp Director, Bob Allmond, as he prepares for camp
  • Young People’s President, Kayla Milroy, as she prepares for Family Camp
  • Those who will attend the many encampments this summer
  • The Board of Directors as they discuss and make decisions regarding camp
  • Kids & Teen Camp Speaker, Lucas Hanna, as he prepares for camp
  • Family Camp Speaker, Titus Martin, as he prepares for camp

Fall Letter

Dear White Lake Family;

“Few people outside of our camp community know of the revitalization, stability, growth and expansion that White Lake Covenanter Camp has and is enjoying.  We must spread the news of God’s goodness and grace to us.”  This is a quote from our Camp Manager, Peter Robson.  

I believe this to be a true statement.   This past summer we were blessed to see almost 100 youths and 27 volunteer counselors attend Kids and Teen Camp.  Lucas Hanna, Pastor of the First RP Church of Beaver Falls provided biblical and practical lessons for the youth while engaging them in valuable conversation.  Many of the kids were involved in a variety of activities, and many for the first time participated in a dramatic presentation directed by Ms. Joanna Lowe.  The kids had a blast as they participated in archery, the slip n’ slide, and games on the quad.  

The following week, over 150 persons attended the Family Camp.  We were blessed to hear Pastor Alex Tabaka of the Broomall RP Church speak on Hebrews.  We enjoyed the rich fellowship, skit night, and the largest campfire ever on our new field!

As we look forward to our next year, we hope that you are also encouraged that White Lake Covenanter Camp is continuing to serve Christ’ Kingdom under the auspices of the St. Lawrence and Atlantic Presbyteries.

Our strategy is to build upon our good work by engaging in some camp improvements.  We want to increase overnight sleeping capacity and improve the condition of the Pritchard House.  We hope to embark upon the following projects in 2018

  1. Install bedrooms above the Dining hall
  2. Renovate the bathroom above Dining Hall
  3. Renovate the bedrooms and guest bathroom in the Pritchard House

Won’t you help us develop and encourage a love for Jesus Christ in our young campers?  Won’t you consider supporting us with as little as $5?  Please send your contribution to Sharon Robson at 195 Wilkinson Rd, Macedon, NY. 14502.  Your contribution is tax deductible.  

Yours in Christ,

Glen A. Chin

President, White Lake Covenanter Camp

Invitation to live at the camp

Hello friends of White Lake,

For many years White Lake Camp was blessed by the year-round presence of Charles and Beth McBurney. They lived in their own trailer on the hilltop and were always there. They also were a great help to the White Lake Church.

The camp now invites those who might like to live at the camp
to call John Edgar at 215-782-9849. Living at the camp would provide the opportunity to help support the summer youth activities of the Atlantic and St. Lawrence Presbyteries. It would also put you just up the hill from one
of the most mercy and outreach-minded congregations in the denomination.
Terms/dates/job description, if any, is all open to discussion, based on availability, interest, and skills.

Our ideal candidate would bring a trailer, live year-round, and provide maintenance.
But even a part-time caretaker would be a blessing. So give me a call if you
might be interested and we’ll talk.

Blessings,

John Edgar
Camp board president
215-782-9849.
