Summer Camp at Holmes is a place for children and young people to disengage from their routine, and enter into the healing power of creation, community, and an awareness of their authentic self all the while receiving the message that they are loved as they are, and have gifts to offer the world. Summer Camp is a special time for young people.
For all of us at Holmes Camp, a summer camp without campers is sad, and frankly, too quiet. We prepare all year to welcome our campers back and were disappointed to have to cancel the 2020 Season.
We recognize that the concept of ‘Virtual Camp’ is directly opposite the actual purpose of camp – so instead, will try to bring a little of the Holmes Camp traditions to you, wherever you are this summer. In a series of schedule posts we will give you a taste of camp throughout the summer.
