Our Summer Staff

Excellent Staff
We hand pick our summer staff of about 20 young (and young at heart) adults who are chosen for their ability to share a strong character, maturity, creativity and ability to work with children.  Staff spend over a week in training before campers arrive learning what you expect of a Holmes camp experience, how to engage campers quickly into camp groups, how to cook over a campfire, as well as receive certifications in American Red Cross First Aid and CPR.  Some also learn specialty skills (lifeguarding, ropes course and initiative facilitation and archery instruction). Our dedicated staff come from churches in the United States and around the world to share faith and broad world views as we live faith together at Holmes.
