Dear Friends,

Greetings from Swanzey Lake, and on behalf of all of us here at Pilgrim Pines , thank you for your participation, prayer, donations, and support throughout this last year of ministry!

Today, I write to ask for your help in finishing well. The staff and I dream often about God’s good future for Pilgrim Pines, and as we seek to close out this year with strength, your participation in it is vital. As our year draws to a close, we are thankful for all that God has done in 2017 and now set our sights on the bright future of Pilgrim Pines.

I’m energized by evidence of Jesus’ transforming work within the lives of our campers. We served  hundreds of campers this summer, equipped  seventy summer staff to use their gifts for the Kingdom,  encouraged over sixteen hundred family campers in their walk with Jesus, and hosted thousands of retreat and guest group individuals.   But more than numbers can measure, camp changes lives! Read how our campers put it in their own words:


I’m compelled to share this vital mission’s real financial needs with you, our partners. We work hard to be faithful with the resources generated by operations; however, to continue to see our programs develop, our facilities cared for with excellence, and our staff flourish, we need your ongoing support. 

The mission is alive, the need is real, and your choice to support Pilgrim Pines with a cash or stock donation will go directly to programs that change lives for Christ. Join me in giving back financially this year to a ministry that has given so very much to so many. Gifts can also be made securely through our website at


Grateful for your support,


Jim Condap
Acting Director
