History: Pilgrim Pines, a ministry of the East Coast Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church, was the vision of a core group of people from the Cromwell, Connecticut area, who followed God’s leading to begin a camp prior to 1920. With the growth of the Cromwell area, the camp was encroached upon by local neighborhoods and had little natural space for improvement. After a search, the current site was purchased. The Pines was a summer operation until the mid 1970’s after which volunteers built new facilities; summer, fall and spring events were added; and the first full-time director was hired. In 1984, Plymouth units were built to accommodate year-round guests.
Throughout history, Pilgrim Pines has been built on the vision to provide an enriching, God-honoring sanctuary that encourages and equips diverse people to seek and glorify God. It is through prayer, hard work and vision of our supporting churches, volunteers, donors, staff and leadership that Pilgrim Pines continues to thrive.
