Dear Friends,

After two years of closures and limited operations Holmes is back in 2022! Retreats are in full swing, our popular Queer Virtue camp is back, this summer has an all new Teen Trip & Travel program, and an exciting lineup of fall retreats and programs will be announced soon.

In order to offer our summer programs, as well as retreats, affordable lodging, and all else that happens at Holmes Camp & Retreat Center we rely on you. Here are some ways you can help:

SCHEDULE YOUR RETREAT
Encourage your Pastor to consider reserving Holmes Camp and Retreat Center for your next church event. Holmes also welcomes scout troops, school groups, community organizations, and other groups who’s mission aligns with our own. Dates book well in advance, so please be in touch soon! Please email holmes@holmescamp.org to inquire.

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER
Our newsletter is a great way to learn about upcoming programs and events, current volunteer opportunities, and anything else going on at Holmes. Regular notes from our staff and board of directors also give you a chance to get to know us better.

VISIT CAMP
You are always welcome to visit the camp on your own or to introduce a friend to camp. Enjoy a picnic, hike a trail, or go geocaching. Please feel free to print a trail map or stop by the office during business hours to pick one up.

MAKE A DONATION
Donations of all sizes help us maintain and improve our facilities and to serve groups from a variety of backgrounds.

VOLUNTEER
There are a number of volunteer opportunities at Holmes. Please email jobs@holmescamp.org to inquire about volunteer opportunities for you or your group.

COVID PROTOCOLS
Holmes will continue to review best practices for Covid-19 and establish on-site procedures following the guidelines set by federal, state, and local officials. Our campers and program attendees’ safety is the most important factor in all of our decision making. We ask that our rental group are diligent in monitoring their group members and maintaining Covid-19 protocols while on site. For current information on masking requirements and other on-site safety protocols please visit holmescamp.org/covid19 regularly as you plan your event.
