2021 Winter Appeal

Looking towards 2022 there is the potential for amazing things! Holmes is blessed with passionate volunteers, generous donors, an active board of directors, a rich history, and a stunning location with extensive infrastructure. Holmes Camp & Retreat Center is looking forward to winter retreats, spring confirmation retreats and camp rentals, and introducing our Snow Place Like Holmes family dinner and camp benefit this coming February. We are also excited to resume our own residential summer camp with revamped programming and new options for teens in summer 2022.

However, as we look towards the future, we also face some challenges. Most immediately, the COVID-19 pandemic wears on, impacting our capacity and program options as we strive to keep our community safe. The associated staffing and supply chain complications also impact us deeply.

And apart from the short-term challenges of the pandemic much of our infrastructure is aging and requires significant ongoing maintenance or major repairs. We are actively renovating Agape in an ongoing project, and a due to water damage Nunemaker requires significant repairs before it can again welcome in campers, churches, and families. Holmes relies on program income and generous donors to address projects like these.
