*7/15/21 Update:

  • Email sent to parents 7/6/21 with reminder to turn in payment
  • COVID: Because the health and safety of our campers, families and volunteers are our priorities, we will have policies and procedures that reflect this. This includes camp programming primarily outside, masks worn indoors when not eating or drinking, and “family groups” staying together all week; when in large group settings, children will either be masked (indoors) or unmasked (outdoors) within their family groups. All Holmeswood adult volunteers are vaccinated, and Heartland has strongly encouraged all staff to be vaccinated. Staff will wear masks at all times indoors, unless eating or drinking.
  • We have a few spots left!
  • Family Cookout – Thursday, July 29 following camp (4:00 pm on). Outdoor activities, fun and food (burgers and hot dogs with sides – vegetarian/vegan/gluten free options available).

We are so excited to offer Heartland Camp at Holmeswood for Summer 2021, and registration is open (see below)! Check back on this page for updates and specific guidelines, as we finalize them. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. If you have questions about registrations and payments, please email Rev. Laurel Cluthe at Laurel . cluthe @ holmeswood.org. We hope your family can join in the fun!

We are thrilled to spend a week with your incredible campers. Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, get ready for an amazing summer and time on the giant water slide!!!!


Our camp is successful because of our wonderful Heartland staff and Holmeswood volunteers! As a volunteer, you have options of how to be involved, including working at check-in/check-out, setup/cleanup, as a family group counselor (all 5 days) when you really get to know the campers, or in a briefer capacity, like helping at stations (Missions, water games, crafts, storytime, lunch, snacktime, etc.), or even the Thursday night family cookout. Please let us know how you would like to be involved; all volunteers will be interviewed and go through a thorough criminal background check and screening. Approved volunteers will participate in a two-part training and are expected to follow all camp policies and procedures.
