Swimming with new friends in the crystal clear refreshing waters of Dan Hole Pond, enjoying the spectacular views from the Ledges hike, challenging yourself on our team building ropes course, relishing well balanced home cooked meals in the Lodge dining hall, and simply appreciating the warm and distinct smell of the campfire with friends. These experiences and other life-long memories await you this summer at Camp Sentinel.

Camp Sentinel 2021
37 weeks of camp?!?!? This week marks the 37th week of camp. Hold on. I thought camps only operate in the summer months! This year was different. Camp Sentinel opened for the summer season in June of 2020 for 10 weeks of day camp, then in September with schools going remote and parents needing to work, Sentinel answered the call to help families. Since mid-September Sentinel has been open for "Student Care" with student mentored by Sentinel staff and 50% of the students receiving scholarship assistance. Sentinel is mission first.
Sentinel is open safe and covid free. We were able to do this by following our health and safety guidelines. This summer cabin capacity for overnight camp will be limited, so it is important to sign up soon. Programs are available for everyone from 5 to 105 years old!
Our 2021 theme is Steadfast. Firm in belief. Determined. Firmly fixed in place. Immovable. "The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23. Camp provides a place where we find unhurried moments to take a breath and focus on the steadfast love of our unchanging God. By purposeful time in the quiet, gazing at the bright stars at night, we are reminded of how immovable God is. Our faith deepens as we are reminded the steadfast love of the LORD never ceases…great is Thy faithfulness.

More about Sentinel
Camp Sentinel is located in the foothills of the Ossipee Mountain range in Tuftonboro, New Hampshire. Established in 1949, Sentinel offers fun, quality Christian overnight and day camp for youth, adults and families. Sentinel hosts year-round rustic retreats for groups up to 200 guests (55 in the winter). Sentinel's group experiences are known for its home cooked meals, attention to detail and Christian hospitality. Amenities include: 5 unique hiking trails, 5 element ropes course with zip line, giant swing, 25-foot-tall rock-climbing wall, large field, archery range, chapel for up to 200 guests, and more. The camp provides solitude on its 600+ acres and over a mile of water frontage on crystal clear Dan Hole Pond.
Sentinel employs 40 summer staff from over 25 area churches. Staff either grow-up through our program or come with fresh new ideas to strengthen program. Staff are background and reference checked and attend staff trainings. Our staff retention rate is high. When staff serve for a summer, they want to come back.
What the Staff Say
MEET THE STAFF
"Often people ask me, how could you "give up" your summer to work at camp for 9 weeks, and I suppose that could be a valid question. I guess it's because camp is my home away from home, where my second family is. I get to spend my summer not only with amazing people but in a bubble, that protects against all the world throws at me. I wake up to constant love, fun and smiles and most importantly my summer is devoted to helping kids find their relationship with Christ. Life outside camp is just so boring in comparison. Simply put I would miss it" -Summer Staff
