Welcome to the Camp Ashmere home page!

Our camping season is underway, but we still have some vacancies four you or your camper. We have several overnight week long experiences available as well as day camp programs that are serviced by our camp bus from North Adams to camp. Drop off/pick up of day campers is also encouraged. We provide a safe, fun, enjoyable, spiritual camp experience filled with water front and sporting activities. Our Camp Directors Justin Lawrence and Nancy Tierney have brought together a great staff and have trained them to be responsive to your campers needs. Our theme this year is being “Fruitfull” as we will explore the gifts God has given us and to learn how to be “Fruitfull” in the world in our everyday lives. Join us for our 99th year on the shores of Ashmere Lake, and make some memories that will last a lifetime.


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!
