PROJECTS & EVENTS
Byron Peter Cabin
In an effort to fulfill the mission of the Byron Peter Foundation for Hope -- to
inspire troubled young people with hope for a strong future -- the Foundation's first project was to build a new cabin, called the Byron Peter Cabin, at the Episcopal Conference Center, a camp and retreat facility located in Pascoag, Rhode Island.
Byron and his sister, Phoebe, and brother, Seth, spent happy days at the ECC
Camp, whose aim is to enhance the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of young people.
A number of professional contractors, carpenters, roofers, and electricians agreed
to volunteer their labor and expertise, and groundbreaking began in November 2004. The goal was to raise funds of for the cost of materials only for building the cabin, estimated at $22,000-$25,000.
In March of 2005 the Byron peter Cabin was completed and is now used for weekend retreats throughout the fall, winter and spring by campers, and provides housing for camp staff during the regular summer season.
- Camp Scholarship Fund
In addition to building the cabin, the Foundation has also established a Camp Scholarship Fund
to provide financial assistance for troubled young people who might benefit from the supportive environment at the camp.
We hope that you will support the Scholarship Fund and other Byron Peter Foundation projects http://bigbropoker.org by purchasing a raffle ticket or by making a monetary donation. Your generosity will go a long way towards providing hope for a strong future to a special young person.
