We have a vacancy.
Holmes Board of Directors are looking to recruit Board members who are passionate about helping Holmes continue to be an outstanding retreat center that shares the gospel of Jesus Christ through instruction, outreach, personal growth, and recreation.
The mission of Holmes is to strengthen people of faith. Holmes welcomes all faith traditions to our facilities. Our programs strive to be a Christ-centered witness to the issues of conservation, ecology, peace, and justice.

What Makes Holmes Camp and Retreat Center Unique?
Holmes is a special place. For over the last 70 years, generations of participants have walked away with a gift. A gift of memories and living faith...some very personal and some very intense. Moments of Christ’s love realized, in a special way that we never forget.
