Holmes Camp News
Dear Friends,
Spring Confirmation Retreats at Holmes Camp and Retreat Center are always a good time!! Explore your faith and enjoy fellowship with youth from other churches.

Join us for one of our two sessions: March 6th - 7th or April 3rd - 4th.
 ( Ask your church leader for your Group Hold Number and use the button below to register.)
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! Questions or need more information reach out to Holmes@HolmesCamp.org .
We are so excited for our 2020 Summer Camp Program that we have been highlighting a different camp or program each day on Social Media!! Don't miss out!
Camp Q

With much gratitude,
Holmes Staff
