Why Camp Brookwoods?
Camp Brookwoods quickly becomes a “home-away-from-home” for our campers.
Why? Simply because Brookwoods is a place that feels like home, you’re comfortable in your own skin, you get to do things you’ve dreamed about, you accomplished things you didn’t think you could, and most importantly, our staff care about you and like to have fun!
Camp is not only a break from your academic and extracurricular activities, it’s a break from social media, devices, and video games. You’ll find us playing tetherball, gaga, and talking about Jesus. We’ll sing loud crazy songs and cook steaks over a campfire. We’ll a hike a mountain and tell our friends about the view. We’ll have slushies and Krazy Karnivals. Camp is a place where you will have fun, make lifelong friends, and learn a whole lot about yourself and the God who created you.
Good friends, good conversations, and learning to overcome challenges–these are the things that build a young man’s faith. Faith isn’t just sitting and listening, it is expressed by doing. At Brookwoods, campers are shown how exciting, fulfilling, and practical the gospel of Jesus is to their lives. Our goal is to continue the Brookwoods tradition of building lives of faith and character.
It takes an excellent camp counselor to have an excellent camp experience. Our staff is selected based on their love for Jesus, spiritual walk, and passion for youth. Their hearts’ desire is to teach and help boys develop into mature Christian men. A Brookwoods counselor is a guy you’d like to be around. Your counselor will spend time with you and get to know you so that he can be an encouragement to you! Like our campers, our staff want to be at camp because they know there’s nothing better than a summer at Brookwoods.
While Brookwoods has lots of land activities on our sports fields and scattered throughout the woods, we have one of the best camp waterfronts in New England. Brookwoods boasts a quarter mile of sandy shoreline along Chestnut Cove on Lake Winnipesaukee (New Hampshire’s largest lake). You can take your pick of how you would like to get out on the water—sailboat, waterski, wakeboard, canoe, windsurf, SCUBA, skin dive, SUP, and more. The waterfront will quickly become one of your favorite places at camp.
