|Holmes Camp & Retreat Center sits on over 500 acres of hills, forest, and wetlands in the Hudson Valley, less than two hours from New York City. Facilities include a small conference center with lodging, dorms, cabins, outdoor and indoor meeting spaces, and rustic youth summer camp facilities. Four lakes and ten miles of trails onsite, as well as nearby landmarks and state parks provide ample opportunities for recreation and renewal.
Our core values—faith, education, conservation, community, recreation, hospitality, and renewal—guide us in serving individuals, churches, nonprofits, and other groups as we carry out our mission to:
Educate | Empower | Renew
Holmes Camp & Retreat Center is a ministry of the Presbyterian Conference Association, and is affiliated with the Presbyteries of Long Island, Hudson River, and New York City of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Your group does not need to be associated with the Presbyterian church, or identify with a faith to attend. In addition to faith affiliated groups Holmes Camp & Retreat Center serves nonprofits, community organizations, scouting groups, as well as social groups and corporate clients that are compatible with our mission and values.
