Camp Gilmont

Camp Gilmont is a regional outreach that the members of FPC-Athens financially supports. 

They provide church camp retreats for bible study and personal growth retreats.  Located in Gilmer, TX, Camp Gilmont offers many opportunities for you to grow in your relationship with our Savior, Jesus.


"Gilmont's mission is to be a safe, sacred space where all are invited to grow closer to God, creation, others, and themselves.

Gilmont has experienced growth and change over time, almost 80 years in fact, and though Gilmont is still a place of ministry, summer camps and retreats, our scope goes beyond our Presbyterian heritage in order to engage a larger Christian community. Gilmont is:

  • developing new spiritual formation program offerings,
  • serving special-needs campers and their families through the ministry of Circle of Friends,
  • hosting retreats and conferences for various Christian organizations, family groups, as well as corporate and nonprofit entities
  • providing Outdoor School which engages public and private schools in meeting their educational goals (TEKS) for students through residential and day programs,
  • helping change lives through the camp experience.

Gilmont remains a simple, beautiful site with the benefit of comfortable accommodations and a beautiful Conference/Retreat Center. The kitchen staff is committed to serving delicious meals and sees accommodating special diet needs as part of our ministry." (from their website)
