In 1959, Johnsonburg Camp & Retreat Center was established to provide experiential Christian education in support of the Presbyterian Church in New Jersey. Johnsonburg today is a place where city kids meet country kids, where black and white discover common ground, where the rich and poor of means and spirit are valued equally, and where each is encouraged to take another vital step toward realizing oneness in Christ.
The Johnsonburg ministry is owned and operated by a Board of Trustees that derives its membership from the seven New Jersey Presbyteries, Presbyterian Church (USA).
Operations are supported by gifts and fees (87%) and by the mission support of the seven New Jersey presbyteries (13%). Capital improvements and endowment are sustained by the gifts of individuals, congregations, and foundations.
