Holmes Alumni Association

Hello & Welcome to the Holmes Alumni Association (HAA)!
The Holmes Alumni Association was founded to strengthen the bonds among our alumni – anyone who has worked, attended, or been influenced by the bounds of love Camp Holmes has to offer.
We, the Executive Committee, express our gratitude to those who voted to elect the inaugural board and extend an invitation to those interested in joining! We would also like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to the alumni community – see our pictures and camp affiliations below.
If you know someone interested in joining an organization dedicated to continuing camp traditions, exchanging camp stories, and celebrating the amazing Holmes Alumni – please pass along his or her contact information.  You can send info, memories, photos or requests to HAA@holmescamp.org.
We hope to build a strong community of all ages and backgrounds!
There will be notices  following to  ighlight alumni successes, get togethers, and the great work being done at Camp Holmes!
Thank you,
HAA Executive Committee
