News From the Outreach-Engagement & Interpretation Subcommittee
of the PNNE Leadership Commission - June 30, 2023

Camp Wilmot can be found 40 miles northwest of Concord, NH and it has a wonderful enriching mission with youth.  While the camp is home to 200 beautiful, wooded acres and an awesome swimming and kayaking pond, this is a place where young people can ‘escape technology, get immersed in the great outdoors, and grow in their faith.


PNNE Mission Giving & Campus Ministry Fund gave the camp a grant in 2022 and the presbytery has been a faithful supporter of Wilmot through the years.  The camp currently hosts several summer youth camps and in the offseason is available for rental.  Lots of PNNE and Boston Presbytery congregants and pastors have either been leaders, staff, donors, and campers at Camp Wilmot.  And many would say, it has had a direct positive impact on their life.  For sure, this camp has a mission with an impact!

This special camp lies within the bounds of our presbytery and serves just under 100 youths a summer.  Wilmot also has clear faith-based goals and outcomes for all who experience the inspiring programs this camp has to offer:


  • Faith-Sharing the good news and love found in Jesus Christ

  • Attitude-Promoting positivity and a can-do helping attitude 

  • Diversity-Celebrating and embracing diversity so that all people may grow and mutually learn from one another 

  • Fun/Joy/Learning-Enjoying camping and making lasting friendships

  • Camper Focused-Counselors serve as role models and work on making a difference

  • Community Living/Core Values-To be unselfish, cooperate, responsible, self-controlled, honest, hospitable, considerate and grow holistically as a person

  • Stewardship of God’s Creation-To learn to care for nature and value sustainability and composting

Many dedicated campers and staff come back year and after to Wilmot because of the goodness and personal growth they experience at camp.  Camps like Wilmot thrive because of the support they receive from PNNE and other committed donors and grantors.  So, thank you PNNE and thank you Camp Wilmot for the faithful work you are doing in shaping disciples.  And a personal thanks to this camp because my own children would never have experienced sleep away camp unless our church, Bedford Presbyterian, staffed the camp and brought loads of kids to Wilmot when my girls were in middle school.  It was a time of great growth and fun for them.

If you would like to know more about the camp and its programming, please go to to learn more.  Happy Summer and Happy camping PNNE!
