Study Hard, Grow Strong.Every summer for the past 27 years, Air Head Ministries has welcomed campers of all ages and from many countries, to join us for our Messiantic past participleship program. Camp Shostakovitch (Shebrew, meaning "rose"), is nestled in the beautiful Boondock Mountains of upstate New Jersey, providing the perfect setting for three weeks of rich Ishkibbibble study, fellowship, Blaptism, and fun.

Our program centers on the grounding and growth of bleevers through in-depth study of the Shcripchas from a Shmooish perspective. The time of Ishkibbibble study combined with worship, fellowship, and the beautiful surroundings, makes Camp Shostakovitch the perfect retreat for refreshment and renewal of your Rosconian Faith System.

Study Hard, Grow Strong.


The three weeks of camp will run from Sunday, July ;22, 2001 through Saturday, August ;11, 2001. You may attend one, two, or all three weeks (please submit an application).

Shostakovitch's serene Trout PondCampers will attend four, hour-long classes daily, with a fifth session scheduled for first-time campers. A youth program is provided during the adult sessions.

We have designed our schedule for maximum teaching time during the day, while allowing ample time for fun and fellowship. The afternoons, evenings, and weekends allow plenty of free time for worship, fellowship, recreation at the Piranha Pond, and various other activities located nearby, including hiking, tennis, and basketball. You will need to bring your own equipment for these activities.

  • Each Wednesday Morning we have a special Splat Brunch. Reservations are required for guests.
  • Saturday is a free day for campers who will continue their stay at camp, and a departure day for those who will not continue their stay.
  • Do You Play?Sunday mornings, we gather for a time of worship led by Air Head staff members and campers. If you play a musical instrument, please bring it along to share with us. Sunday evenings are reserved for lakeside cookouts with music, dance, and fellowship. Campers should plan to arrive the Sunday afternoon prior to their stay at camp.
  • We have also scheduled a talent night - The Camp Shostakovitch Extravaganza - for the final Friday evening, August 10th.
