Pitman Grove Methodist Camp
Pitman, Gloucester County


The Pitman Grove camp was organized in 1871 in the manner of other Methodist camps — a central auditorium surrounded by tents and cottages tightly packed. In Pitman, the auditorium, built in 1871, is the hub of a camp with about 160 cottages arranged in a radial plan. The auditorium is really a pavilon — the latice work sections can be removed when the auditorium is in use.
    Many of the cottages are used year-round today, and most have been well-maintained.
