"Camp at the Eastward is a faith-based community which strives to build relationships with God and one another in an environment of acceptance and love. Our mission, as a ministry ofMission at the Eastward, is to provide foundational knowledge and spiritual growth in Jesus Christ through community, friendship, worship and adventure."
Camp at the Eastward [CATE] is a Presbyterian camp owned and operated by the churches of Mission at the Eastward [MATE], a non-profit organization under the auspices of the Presbytery of Northern New England [PNNE], since its founding in 1960 by the visionary Rev. Bill Burger. That early 'can do' spirit and abiding camper loyalty are reflected in the tenacious support, stewardship, and hands on volunteerism that have brought us to where we are today.
CATE provides both week-long residential camps (grades 3-12) and day camp for younger campers during our Summer Camp season. In addition, specialty camps and rental use of these unique facilities to groups and organizations are available. Summer campers come from a variety of backgrounds 'where everyone belongs' and where, for some, 'Camp is their Bible' or 'Church'. Staff and directors are often camp alumni, affiliated with a church of Mission at the Eastward, and/or a member of the MATE pastoral staff.
