The Dwight Presbyterian Mission’s board of directors recently voted to suspend operations at the Dwight Mission Camp and Conference Center, effective Dec. 15.
In a statement released Tuesday, the board said “In the midst of diligent work, prayers, and discernment we continue to pursue the best options for the facility with hopes to develop a model to extend the legacy to future generations. In the interim we recommend campers seek out opportunities for camp and other connectional ministries through their church and Presbytery for 2020. We ask for our community's continued prayers in these trying times.”
A post in early November revealed that the mission has run at a “considerable loss. This was made possible primarily by financial assets from the past. That safety net of reserve funds has diminished greatly and is nearly exhausted. This means that if the ministry of Dwight Mission is to continue, significant changes must be made immediately.”
