Pawtuckaway State Park

The Camp Meeting played a significant role in the spiritual revivals of New England. Families from hundreds of miles around would pour into a campground days to weeks at a time for worship, singing, preaching, and fellowship. The Newmarket, NH Camp Meeting grew so large that its 18,000 people had to move to Epping, NH! What would it have been like to see that many people assemble to hear the Bible taught, or have families sit around the campfire teaching the youth about the things of God? The loss of the Camp Meeting has had a distinct impact on forging the spiritual lives of the future generations in New England.

Our church has decided to bring back a Camp Meeting for the 11th anniversary of NESBC, with an emphasis on training youth. Proverbs 1:8-9 says, "My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck." We must view our youth as today's treasures, and not just the church of tomorrow. A camping environment not only provides instruction for enjoying the great outdoors, fishing, boating, making fire, and survival skills, but it also presents the opportunity to teach the next generation how to honor Christ while doing such things. Families can get away from the busyness of daily life and spend time in God’s Word. Camp is an opportunity take a break from television, computers, jobs, and routine tasks to fellowship, sing, worship, and serve with other Bible-believing Christians. Daily preaching and quiet times are interspersed with food and fun. For those who are not interested in tenting overnight, please visit us during the day.

When: Friday September 24, 2021 1:00pm through Sunday September 26, 2021 1:00pm.

Where: Pawtuckaway State Park in Nottingham, NH. Less than 40 minutes to the coastal beaches to the east and to Manchester to the west, Pawtuckaway State Park Campground is situated for easy access to a variety of attractions and activities. This 5,000-acre preserve is one of the largest state parks in southeastern New Hampshire and is named for Pawtuckaway Lake and the Pawtuckaway Mountains. 128 Mountain Rd, Nottingham, NH 03290

We are using sites A-D in the youth group tenting area. This section of the campground is for tenting only. There are no sites with electricity or water, but both are available at the pavillion in the middle of the camp. All gatherings, meals, and services will be held at the pavillion. 

  • Arrive between 1-6 pm on Friday. Upon arrival, proceed past the Welcome Center’s parking lot and continue down Pawtuckaway Road to the Ranger’s shack. If occupied, please inform the person you are with NESBC and admission has been prepaid.

  • Continue 1.7 miles and turn right towards the youth group area. Proceed .2 of a mile to the end of the road. Do not enter the dirt parking lot on the left at .1 of a mile.

  • Special medical instructions or allergies must be reported at registration.

  • If it is necessary to change your plans or arrival time, please notify us immediately.

  • All camp site assignments will be arranged before the campers arrive. We will try our best to accommodate requests, but we cannot make guarantees. All children must sleep with the same parents or guardians each night. Please do not share camp sites.



Special Speaker: Pastor Justin Kauffman will be our speaker for the weekend. He was born in Hanover, Pennsylvania, and accepted Christ as Savior when he was twenty-three years old. At the age of twenty-seven, he was called to the pastoral ministry and attended Clearwater Christian College in Clearwater, Florida. There he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral studies. While living in Florida he met his wife Allison whom he married in 2003. Then in 2005 he attended Faith Baptist Bible seminary in Ankeny, Iowa and graduated with a Master of Arts in Pastoral studies. While in Seminary he served as an associate pastor for a year at Calvary Baptist Church in West Des Moines, Iowa and then served as the Senior pastor another year before being called to Faith Baptist Church in Kittery, Maine where he has served since August of 2009. The Kauffman's have four children; Josiah, Jeremiah, Kayla, and Ava.
