Pilgrim Lodge Archival Project
Outdoor Ministries Committee is looking for material to add to the
Outdoor Ministries Archive. This material may be either donated,
or simply loaned so that it can be scanned and preserved
electronically, then returned. We are looking for materials from
Pilgrim Lodge, as well as from the youth camping program that ran from
1925-1955. Perhaps, you, your parents, or your grandparents attended
some of these. Some of the names of these camping programs were: Camp
Manitou, Camp Akita, Camp Mowano, and Cobbosseecontee (or Cobbossee).
Some of the places where they took place were: the state YMCA camp in
Winthrop, Camp Medomic in Washington, and Camp Passock in Brooks.
We are looking for photographs, brochures, letters, souvenirs, T-shirts,
store items, or anything regarding the camping program. It is most
helpful if material has the date, or at least the year affixed to it.
We are also seeking Pilgrim Lodge and trip camp materials from
1956-1994. Although we do have many of the all-camp photos,
countless numbers are not dated or labeled so loaning us your copy with
that information would be very much appreciated. Please send
material to Pilgrim Lodge Archive Project, 103 Pilgrim Lodge Lane, West
Gardiner, ME 04345. If you have any questions or wonder if
your material is needed, please call or email Rev. Bryan S. Breault at
