Bridges to Community Service Trip to the Dominican Republic
Dear Friends,
Let's do something positive and make a difference this summer.

Holmes Camp and Retreat Center is partnering with  Bridges to Community. Travel with us to the Dominican Republic to make sustainable changes in an impoverished community. This is a great mission trip for individuals, families or your church’s adult or youth group!
Summer Camp is such a joyful experience. Give your child the gift of fun, laughter and good old Mother Nature for a week (or more!) at Holmes Summer Camp. Let them unplug! There's a camp for everyone! If you follow Holmes on social media - you have seen us highlighting our fantastic camps - use the button below for the full schedule.

HOLMES STAFF, Always Learning...
While preparations are underway to welcome a new season of campers. Staffers are not only readying the site, but themselves!

This month, Site Manager Bobby is gearing up for camp by attending the American Camping Association (ACA) Standards Conference. Chef Steve is cooking up something great at the ServSafe Conference for food service professionals. And, Assistant Director Sam headed down to Arkansas for the Compass Points Program which works with camp leaders to expand and deepen their knowledge of camp and retreat ministry programs. Thanks to our great staff!!
We are still accepting applications for Summer Staff.
 Coming soon...windows!!!
With much gratitude,
Holmes Staff
