Father Campbell served as the pastor of Camp Baskervill in Pawleys Island, SC (Georgetown County). Camp Baskervill developed summer camps for at-risk youth and was instrumental in bringing together area churches and organizations to help people recover from the effects of Hurricane Hugo in 1989. Gumbo Stew, a cultural heritage festival, was held for several years. Interview conducted by Gail Matthews.

Now an outreach of Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church, Baskervill Ministries serves to provide relief, education and spiritual life, through the love of Jesus Christ, to all who come in hope and faith to seek and share.
