Holmes Camp News
We are continuing to accept registrations for Summer Camp, with the hope that the warmer weather will bring better health and freedom to all. 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!
As our Early Bird Registration deadline is upon us, we realize these last few weeks have been a blur for so many. While you were trying to figure out logistics for the next few weeks, you probably were not thinking about Summer Camp.

In the spirit of making things a little easier and giving you a moment to breath, we have extended our 10% Off Early Bird Registration Discount to April 15. (See also our refer a friend discount and scholarship opportunities HERE . )
Summer Camp is so much fun - but we can't do it without the wisdom, guidance and laughter of our Summer Staff!!

We are accepting applications for Summer 2020 Staff a little bit longer. Our comprehensive Staff Training begins June 14, 2020 - so don't delay!!
The next confirmation retreat has been RESCHEDULED to from April to MAY 15 - 16.
We have rescheduled our April Confirmation Retreat to May 15 - 16th. As long as state and local official allow it, we will run our confirmation retreat as planned.

If your church has postponed Confirmation classes until the Fall, let us know. We would be happy to offer an additional retreat at a later date.

 HERE for registration, parent information and agenda.
