Use the "Give to Camp" button to link to the Diocesan giving portal.

Choose "DOV Appeal" from the giving dropdown menu at the linked page, then type "SMC scholarships" in the optional memo line. If you would like to donate to summer 2020 programming, indicate it with "SMC 2020 programs" in the memo line.

We are often asked how people can give back to camp: their camp experience was foundational for their faith and life, and they would like to contribute in some way, big or small. For those who are wondering what they can do, here are some suggestions.

  • Donate to our Camp Scholarship Fund by clicking on the button above.

    • We are able to accept online donations to our camp scholarship fund. In 2010, the Diocese of Virginia was able to give over $20,000 in scholarship funds, helping many campers come to camp. However, our scholarship funds are not yet endowed, and we need your help in order to continue to help families send their children to camp!

  • Donate something found on our "Shrine Mont Camps Wish List!"

    • There are things that we find ourselves in need of, and maybe they are items that you are looking to get rid of. If you have the following items, please contact Paris Ball to see about donating them to Shrine Mont Camps! We do ask, however, that all items donated are "usable" (new or gently used are perfect!)

    • 4-drawer filing cabinets (locking)

    • Any sports equipment

    • Air pumps for dodge balls

    • Canoes, paddles, and life vests

    • Art supplies

    • Camping backpacks and supplies

The Diocese of Virginia’s summer camp program at Shrine Mont promotes the emotional and spiritual development of children, youth, and young adults through the fostering of a safe and positive environment for all. It is the goal of this program to encourage the growth of relationships with self, others, and God.

At Shrine Mont Camps, we strive to create a diverse and safe community that welcomes campers and staff from all backgrounds. We do not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, religion, creed, color, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental ability, or sexual orientation in the administration of any of our programs. All camp activities will promote and maintain the personal and emotional safety of all campers and staff.
