Hay Thanks! 

Your family camp summer hayride experience just got a little better. 

We had such a great visit with our friends from Covenant Village last week. While they were here we were presented with this giant check that will help us purchase our new hayride wagon and enhance our programming options!  We love partnering with our dear friends at Covenant Village of Cromwell, CT. And a special thank you to  The Peder Hedberg Foundation  for the generous donation that finished off our purchase. Grateful for partners who value Christian camping.

Camp Squanto 2016
We are so excited for the upcoming summer season at Camp Squanto! Activities include big games, waterfront, climbing tower, zip-line, challenge course, arts and crafts, camp store, great meals, crazy skits, but even more importantly, amazing worship, skill development and great fun with your friends & cabin mates. Each week of camp we invite age-appropriate guest speakers to come and talk to the campers about their faith. Music is led by the summer staff and is always a crazy and moving experience. Camp Squanto campers love to sing! New for 2016 - zip line & a new adventure course and Creative Arts Camp! 
 

Creative Arts Camp!

New at Camp Squanto! Music, Drama, Art, Dance, along with all your Camp Squanto favorites! During this non-competitive one week camp experience campers will work with professionals and Squanto staff as they learn to use their God-given gifts.  Campers will spend time each day learning and developing new skills in their chosen area. This program is  run by professional staff that will foster each camper's interests, talents and aspirations. Campers learn onsite, and offsite as they will  visit local stages and theaters to learn from those who serve in the arts with production, drama, sound and light. The week will finish with a creative arts showcase. Space for this camp is limited so sign up today for this amazing experience!
Many families say that their week at Mayflower Family Camp is a hybrid between a traditional New England summer camp and a fun filled, memory making family vacation. Mayflower Family Camp creates a unique oasis for adults and children alike. Parents can choose to participate in morning Christian education time with outstanding speakers from across the country while their kids learn new skills, discover Biblical lessons and share new experiences with their new friends. Everyone has the chance to develop an appreciation for new friendships and God's creation.

Volunteer Opportunities
Pilgrim Pines welcomes volunteers all year long
Whether you come by yourself, with your family or through a church group. We are blessed by volunteers who help in the kitchen, serve as weekend hosts, assist in the Mayflower office and work on maintenance projects.
We can really use some volunteer help now and into the fall as we are clearing some areas of overgrowth in the camping area.
 
Your church may even be interested in our " Adopt-a-Cabin" program. When a church adopts a cabin they commit to an annual donation toward its maintenance and often send a volunteer group to specifically tend to their cabin's needs.  Contact  Jim Condap  if your church is interested in volunteering or Adopt-a-Cabin.
