Camp Sentinel since 1949

Why Camp? 

The safety of all our campers, families and staff is our utmost importance.  Summer 2021, we are following the state of NH camp guidelines.  Additionally we have extra cleaning protocols in place,  we are excited to enjoy more time in the fresh air and outdoor space on Sentinel's 629 acres.  We will have temperature screenings upon arrival to ensure the health and safety of campers and families.   Camp weeks are filling quickly as space is limited.

For over 70 years Sentinel has been providing a summer Christian community for youth to build self-esteem, have meaningful connections, develop character, become strong leaders and to discover and explore creativity through the guidance of well-trained staff. We believe that camp is an opportunity for everyone, and we are excited to see you and your family this year! Daily activities include swimming, boating, arts & crafts, team-building games, ropes course with zip line, rock wall, archery, hiking, large group team sports, and many other great adventures. Each evening the entire camp gathers for Vespers which is a time of worship, singing and Bible study. 


Health and Safety information  

offering certainty in uncertain times


In support of the New Hampshire Government led efforts to reduce the opportunities for viral transmission, Sentinel has initiated various preventative measures. We are working with state and local agencies regarding the health and safety of campers and we are following best practices recommended by Health officials for the safety of all campers and camp employees.   Sentinel plans to be open for overnight and day camp this coming summer, reducing the enrollment and cabin sizes for overnight campers by 50%.


What makes Sentinel unique:

  • Sentinel is an essential choice for families, offering childcare through overnight and day camp. Sentinel offers hope in uncertainty.  In person safe interaction is important to the development of children.

  • Located on 629 acres and a mile of water frontage, we provide a place for campers to spread out and enjoy fresh air.

  • The majority of our campers and staff are from local communities

  • Sentinel operated 10 weeks of day camp in 2020 and 27 weeks of Student Care through March 2021.  


What we are doing:

  • Increased the frequency of cleaning activities through the campus with priority placed on areas anticipated to have elevated risks for viral contact.

  • Added additional hand sanitizing stations throughout the camp.

  • Set up an isolated area for sick campers.

  • Displaying proper handwashing hygiene posters in key areas throughout the camp.

  • Coordinating with housekeeping staff to ensure high traffic areas are frequently maintained and ensuring cleaning crews are following the best practices.

  • Reducing cabin sizes and camper enrollment for sleeping.

  • Campers screened upon arrival and temperature checks throughout the week.


What you can do:

The most effective ways to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 are to:

  • frequently wash/sanitize your hands for at least 20 seconds each time.

  • cover your cough with the bend of elbow or tissue.

  • maintain a distance of at least six feet from people who are coughing or sneezing.

  • stay at home if you are sick.

  • avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.

  • avoid close contact with people who are sick.



We are together in reducing risk and offering hope for campers.


Blessings and see you on the mountaintop again soon!
