We are so excited for the upcoming summer season at Camp Squanto! Activities include big games, waterfront, climbing tower, arts and crafts, camp store, great meals, crazy skits, but even more importantly, great worship, skill development and great activities with your friends & cabin mates. Each week of camp we invite 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!

Product and Service Donation
Imagine owning a home with hundreds of beds, 96 toilets, multiple electronics, multiple wifi locations, a fleet of vehicles, power equipment, etc.
As you can imagine it takes lots to keep the place going.
Pilgrim Pines is always looking for more partners in its ministry.  If you are interested in partnering with us, there are several ways you can contribute. Take a look at our product & services page  for ways you can help. Or feel free to make a direct donation by clicking the DONATE button below.
 
 

Our hope is that you will continue to faithfully walk with us as you have in the past.  So, we are asking you to please consider joining us on this journey with your gifts of talent, time, and treasure.

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 or your church are interested in volunteering or the Adopt-a-Cabin program.
