Summer Camp Registration is OPEN!
Dear Friends,
Cold weather got you down?! Holmes has got you covered! Our Summer Camp Program is ready to take your registrations. Mark your calendar for Friends Day on July 25. And, remember, camp isn't only for the kids - our Adult Programs are awesome too!
All of us at Holmes are dedicated to giving you the best summer. We have your old favorites like Camp Q and Night Owl Camp . AND, we've added a bunch of cool new experiences including; Wilderness and Nature Camps , Go Green Camp and Arts Camp . Plus, Pirate Camp for our younger campers, Bike Camp for our adventurous campers and our Mission Trip* for our 'do gooder' campers!!

Holmes is offering an early bird discount for Summer Camp if registration if paid in full before March 31!

You must register through our website and request the 10% off early bird discount. Camp must be paid in full. If you would prefer to mail a check, call the office and let us know, as long as the check is postmarked by March 31st, we will honor the discount!
*Mission Trip may not be eligible for the early bird discount, as we are at the mercy of airfare costs.

Help spread the word about Holmes Camp by telling your friends, forwarding this email, and sharing and liking on social media!

Disappointed you've outgrown summer camp? Never fear, summer staff applications are here!! We are looking for motivated and dynamic leaders to work and play at summer camp this year. Applications are HERE .

And, what would camp be without our CIT's? Learn more about CIT training weekend HERE .
Explore your faith and enjoy fellowship with youth from other churches. Spots are starting to fill up! Join us for one of our two sessions: March 6th - 7th or April 3rd - 4th

Holmes Camp Confirmation Retreats are designed for confirmation classes, leaders and adult mentors. Together, we will ask and affirm the big questions about how our own spiritual development is relevant as we navigate and explore our own journeys and how they intersect with family, community, service, church, and our choices. We'll have some fun, too! More information or register, HERE .

Questions or need more information reach out to Holmes@HolmesCamp.org .
Another week's progress at the Agape II site. So exciting!!
With much gratitude,
Holmes Staff
