Celebrating 75 Years!
|Dear Holmes Camper Families, |
We are gratified that the hope of safe gathering looms on the horizon. The Holmes Camp Board of Directors and others have been meeting weekly, monitoring the situation and deciding on the safest way to welcome you back to camp. Additionally, we are looking for the best ways that Holmes can be most effectual and relevant in the world that is about to re-emerge.
We are now open for picnics and for day use. Currently the New York State guidelines read “non-residential social gatherings of up to 100 people can occur indoors and up to 200 people can occur outdoors.” So please call us to set up an event. A picnic at the Lodge is a great way to bring your church or group together.
Mark your Calendars for July 31 for Holmes Camp Friends Day! If you’ve never been, it is a great day to explore. Take a tour of the facility, or just the new building. It will involve good people, beautiful space, good food, meaningful worship, and a deep sense of gratitude.
Holmes Retreat Week – A hybrid of family time with some camp activities.
Following Friends Day, stay for the first week of August when we will be offering time for families and friends to come together and stay in one of the Agape buildings. Join us at a retreat for all ages to celebrate resilience and unwind at Holmes Camp and Retreat Center. The retreat is booked by the room with options for three or six nights, and includes lodging, food, and activities for all ages.
Activities include swimming, canoeing, crafts, hiking, high-ropes course challenges, and more! Plus there will be time to unwind and enjoy nature, good company, and daily opportunities for worship.
