Timothy Hill Christian Camp & Retreat Center, a beautiful and special place.
We, at THCC, have the primary goal of focusing on youth development and leadership training. At THCC this is done in an atmosphere that allows the children to have fun, be empowered, take leadership roles, and learn teamwork… all while witnessing God’s creation that exists all around this beautiful, wonderful place!
Our children have gotten so far away from the basics in life. We live in such a fast-paced world… full of all the electronic gadgets that we so focus on sometimes: TV, radio, internet, etc., and so often our children live in such a fast-paced lifestyle of getting up, going to school, coming home, doing homework, internet time (Facebook, games, etc.), chores, bedtime. They try to squeeze so much in between all of this that sometimes the basics get neglected. Like not just catching a fish but how to clean it, how to cook it, and then serving it. We can offer so many skills that today’s children sometimes don’t have time to learn: woodworking, gardening, caring for farm animals and, in the future,horseback riding (and then taking care of the horse). Other things like reading a map, survival basics, manners, learning a new exercise, how to build things, making things, sharing things, and serving others are also things that our children will learn here at the camp. Youth ministry is our passion and we are surrounded by an incredible array of gifted and resourceful people who share the same zeal for young hearts, minds, bodies, and souls.
Our campus consists of 97 acres of mostly forested land located on the 122 acre Norwich Lake in Huntington Massachusetts. A glacier lake located in the Berkshire Mountains, Norwich Lake is crystal clear teeming with multiple species of fish. A perfect centerpiece for the surrounding hills with deer, moose, bear and other wildlife.
