Mission Statement

A Welcoming Christian Community
responding to God’s call
where lives change and faith grows
in a natural setting.

The purpose of the Homes Presbyterian Camp and Conference Center is to strengthen people of faith.  Holmes Camp welcomes all faith traditions to our facilities as we live out our Mission Statement.   Our own programs spread the gospel of Jesus Christ through instruction, outreach, personal growth, recreation, and also to be a Christ-centered witness to the issues of conservation, ecology, peace, and justice. The objectives of the Center are to provide comfortable facilities for reflection, growth and inspiration in the midst of the most urbanized region of the world. We practice Christian nurture, witness, outreach and mission through the building of inclusive, healing and reconciling communities in the Center’s retreats, conferences and camping programs.

For generations of participants over the last 70 years, the Holmes Camp is a special place. Perhaps difficult to explain, the spirit of the place — and of the people — shines through when friends remember. All have walked away with a gift: the gift of memories and living faith . . . some very personal, some very intense. Moments of Christ’s love realized, in a special way, we never forget.
