Holmes Camp News
Holmes Camp is YOUR camp. Thank you to the Presbyteries, Churches and Individual who have already sent a gift to show their support. We are so grateful.

If you are considering a gift to support Holmes Camp, it's never been easier - we now offer Venmo as an option! You can still go to our website to use a credit card or send a check. A gift in any amount that is meaningful to you, would mean the world to us.
Our trails are still open. We ask that all visitors check in with Bryan by phone or email.

You can call or text 845-235-6458 or email Bryan@HolmesCamp.org .

And, remember to keep social distancing.
Agape II's progress had been stalled by the COVID19 restrictions. However, there's some good news! We have been granted permission from the town of Kent to begin some limited work with a single worker from each trade.
Due to county and state restrictions and social distancing guidelines, it is necessary to reschedule our May 2nd Camp Mission Work Date for a later date. As soon as we have direction on a return to some normalcy, we will announce the new work day.
While we are all sad we can't be at camp - follow us on Social Media to stay connected and see some fun stuff. Throw back photos (we have some really good ones!) , current photos (what we're up to while no one's around) , video's from Bryan (both fun and inspirational) and some other really cool camp stuff.

Our favorite post from last week - goes back a few years. Thanks to Caroline Griffiths , you can play a rousing game of Holmes Camp BINGO!! Let us know how many different ways you can get BINGO! 
Do you have a cool memory or sentimental item from your time at camp? SHARE it with us! Take a picture/send a note to Holmes@Holmescamp.org . You may get featured in our weekly E-News! Make sure to include any campers names, the year and a short descriptions.
We are still hopeful that camp will move forward this summer, so we are continuing to accept registrations. As long as it is safe to do so, we will welcome your campers and let them have some much needed time to run free!
