Welcome to the Camp Ashmere home page!

2014 Thank You

Thank you for your support and participation in our 2014 camping season.  We had a great summer with stimulating overnight camps, and a five week day camp program, which saw our greatest growth. Our staff did a great job with the campers and everyone had a wonderful experience on the shores of Ashmere Lake. We thank each of the staff members for their service and devotion to the camp and campers, as many campers left with a new understanding of God and with Jesus in their hearts. We look forward to next summer which will be our anniversary as we celebrate 100 years of camping in this location in Hinsdale, and we hope that many of you will join us next year as we plan on having a very special season as a result. Our schedule and calendar of event s will be coming out by November at the latest, so watch for our announcements. Come and join in the fun and see what is new in 2015.


My children have been attending for over ten years.  Every summer I hear the question, “When is camp?”  They love the feeling of family they have there and reconnecting with people whom they have missed over the school year.  As a parent, it is so good to have a place where my children can go and learn the word of God in a fun and relaxed environment.  I am happy that I can send my kids to camp and know that are being taught the same values they are taught at home.  The experiences my children have at Camp Ashmere have helped them to grow as Christians and as caring people.  Thank you Camp Ashmere for giving my kids the experience of a lifetime!

 Camp Ashmere is celebrating its 100th camping season on the shores of Ashmere Lake in Hinsdale, MA.  This has been a remarkable ministry of the First Baptist Church in North Adams, starting with three years of previous camping ministry in Whitingham, VT.  The camp has served the area youth well over the years, nurturing thousands and opening the door to a relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ. We are blessed to be able to continue that relationship and heritage for the youth of today. Our goal is to continue these traditions well into the 21st Century, while at the same time celebrating that past heritage. To kick off our celebration, we are having a Centennial Anniversary dinner January 31 at the American Legion Hall in North Adams. All are invited to come and join us for this special occasion.  We will gather at 6 pm, have a dinner catered by Boston Seafood, have a piece of birthday cake, watch video presentations of our past seasons, meet friends, campers, and past staff members, take part in a special auction of camp mementos, and enjoy dancing following the program.  All of this will cost you just $25.00 a person.  Tickets are available from Camp Trustees and at the First Baptist Church, and can be reserved by calling 413-663-3780.





Camp Ashmere still has several weekends free in October for any group or church that is interested in holding a Fall Retreat or conference at Camp Ashmere.  We will serve as host for your event, providing the facilities and meals, providing a comfortable setting on the shores of Ashmere Lake.  If you are planning an event, call Kurt Gabel at the Church 413-663-3780 or send an e-mail to to discuss details, dates and rates. Please note that overnight accommodations is limited to 80, conference seating to 100 participants.  We are now booking for Spring Retreats and Conferences, with spaces available from April 10 through June 22.
