“At Sentinel I feel safe. I feel closer to God here.” -2019 summer camper
We thank the LORD and give God all the Glory. Last summer 756 campers came to the grounds to enjoy time in nature. People feel welcomed and parents feel safe choosing Sentinel as the place for their children to deepen their understanding of who God is and know how much God loves them. Ministry happens through the stillness of the grounds and the dedication of staff and volunteer camp pastors, worship leaders and wellness professionals who serve.
Sentinel Lodge is open year-round serving community, church, school groups. Sentinel supports ministry families through personal and family retreats. The Wixson Ministry Retreat is open year-round offering Pastors and their families a place of rest and refreshment.
As we look towards this summer, we are reminded that words like “be not afraid” and “fear not” occur over 300 times in the Bible. There are many things to distract us in life, causing fear in our lives. When we come face to face with fear, trusting God’s presence, promises, provision and power, we are then able to Walk in Confidence. Isaiah 43:2 encourages us: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” This summer we will learn how to Walk in the Confidence of the LORD.
We are thankful and ask for your continued prayers and missions support to help children attend camp and help with the ministry. The support of friends and local churches is important to the work we do together. Sentinel is a place where we say “Yes” to families in financial need to attend summer camp.

This winter, we learned the Lodge septic system will need to be replaced and we are reaching out for support. The cost of the project is $78,000. Many have stepped up to help- Thank you! To date $45,000 has been raised and we have $33,000 remaining to complete the project. Please consider a gift of support to help us with this important immediate need. Tax deductible gifts may be sent to 29 Sentinel Lodge Road, Center Tuftonboro, NH 03816 or donations made safe and secure online.
Moments at camp are life changing. Sentinel programs are Bible study theme based with staff and volunteers who give of their time to walk alongside the campers. The outdoor environment is unique. We believe through ministry partnership; Relationships are Built and Lives are Changed. Thank you for standing with us in ministry!
See you on the mountaintop,
