Our Ministry

Gilmont’s mission is to offer a place where people can grow in mind, body, and spirit by experiencing God’s love.

Gilmont has experienced growth and change over time, and though are still a place of ministry summer camps and retreats,  our scope goes beyond our Presbyterian heritage in order to engage a larger Christian community.  Gilmont is:

  • developing new spiritual formation program offerings
  • serving special-needs campers and their families through the ministry of Circle of Friends;
  • hosting various Christian, families’ and nonprofit’s retreats and conferences;
  • providing Outdoor School which engages public schools in meeting their educational goals for students through residential and day programs;
  • helping change lives through the camp experience.

Gilmont remains a simple, beautiful site with the benefit of comfortable accommodations and a beautiful Conference/Retreat Center.  The kitchen staff is committed to serving delicious meals and sees accommodating special diet needs as part of our ministry.

Our Prayer: That everyone would leave Gilmont reborn, spiritually nourished, refreshed or revived, having experienced God and having been served in love.
