Jesse Remington High School is a Christian community of faculty and students pursuing wisdom, knowledge and understanding, and is committed to raising this generation of youth to be effective leaders for Jesus Christ. Jesse Remington High School began as a vision in the hearts and minds of a handful of Candia Church members who incorporated the school as a ministry of the Candia Congregational Church in 1990, and opened the door in September 1992. Development of Christian character with an emphasis on Leadership has been the taproot of a JRHS education from day one. Activities as diverse as Bible class, daily devotions, chapel services, mission outreaches, Koinonia groups and faculty mentoring have been our foundation. From humble beginnings, the Lord has called and blessed the school mightily. Jesse Remington High School has pioneered an educational program called Project Based Learning, where students are regularly involved in 6-8 week group projects across the disciplines that demand teamwork and excellence. Woven into the fabric of our emphasis on teaching the mission life has been the development of our Spring Mission Program, where JRHS students have partnered with some of the best mission organizations available, to give them life-changing experiences. Part of our legacy is the growing body of alumni that carry the mission of JRHS beyond our campus. We like to think that JRHS is producing Christian leaders fully capable of carrying on the work begun by Pastor Jesse Remington over 200 years ago.JRHS Website

Wilderness Camp has three goals: To provide a dedicated time to share the Gospel in fun, relaxed and personal environment. To provide a safe place for children and youth to enjoy the gifts of freedom and educational camp activities. To provide leadership training and experience for youth in an atmosphere of expectation of excellence, without the pressure of perfection.
To equip the young people, who have come through camp and have accepted the responsibility of the Gospel from various churches, to be able to share the Message with confidence for the rest of their lives.Wilderness Camp Web Page
