Registration Opening Soon

The Annual Camp Meeting played a significant role in the spiritual revivals of historic New England. Families from hundreds of miles around poured into campgrounds once a year 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 listen to God's Word, or have families sit around the campfire teaching the youth about the things of God? These camp meetings eventually died out and are now forgotten.

NESBC has decided to bring back an Annual Camp Meeting each September that focuses on the teaching of God's Word in a casual, camping setting. This environment provides access to the great outdoors, fishing, boating, making fire, and survival skills, but it also presents the opportunity to disciple the next generation away from the busyness of daily life by spending time in God’s Word. Camp is an opportunity to 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 camping overnight, please visit us during the day. You are welcome to independently rent a cabin just a few miles away if you prefer not to camp out.

The campground we use is rustic and limited to tent camping or popups. RVs and pets are not allowed. The camp sites do not have water or electricity hookups, but both are easily accessible. Showers are about 1.5 miles away, but modern bathrooms are on site at the pavilion in the middle of the camp. All gatherings, meals, and services will be held at the pavilion. Grills are provided for cooking if needed.

When: Friday September 22, 2023 1:00pm through Sunday September 24, 2023 3:00pm.

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

  • Arrive between 1-6 pm on Friday. Upon arrival, proceed to the Welcome Center to the right and get a parking pass for NESBC at the Youth Camping Area. Please inform the attendant that 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.


2023 THEME

Habakkuk lived in a society shaken by violence, plunged deep into sin, and life was falling apart at the seams. Habakkuk's frank conversation with God revealed God's passion, zeal, and sovereign plan for his people. While Israel is not the church, much can be drawn from the character of God in this wonderful Old Testament book.
