Do you enjoy taking pictures or making videos? Create a story with your fellow campers and learn new skills as you develop it into a video to share during Saturday’s closing program. Your creations may also help introduce future campers to Holmes! You’ll also enjoy some of your favorite camp activities, including high ropes, swimming, Bible study, visiting The Farm and more! If possible, campers should bring their digital camera (that is not a phone!); we will have a limited number to share with the group.

Bring your mountain bike to camp! Together, you will learn some safety and basic maintenance skills before your group takes day trips to local scenic bike trails.

S.A.L.T. – Service And Leadership Training
Are you interested in putting your faith into action and make a difference? During these two weeks, you will help with projects here at Holmes, lead worship during Friends Day and in a local church, and serve within our local communities. S.A.L.T gives you the chance to explore what it means to be the servant leaders Jesus calls us to be. Come prepared to have fun and work hard!
July 23 – August 5
The Leaders in Training Experience is designed as a three-week program for youth who want to excel in leadership positions at camp, church, school, and beyond! The focus of this camp is on personal faith development, Biblical theme familiarity, group dynamics, listening and communication skills with an emphasis on leadership and behavior modeling in camp.
L.I.T.E. campers begin their time with a week of training similar to our staff training, exploring how to utilize your strengths and work as part of a team, as well as participating in camp activities. L.I.T.E. campers will then have two weeks to put their training into practice, shadowing staff as they serve as program staff and/or junior counselors.
This is an excellent opportunity for youth to step out in faith, try new things, and grow in responsibility in a supportive, Christian setting!
July 9 – 23
