Day Retreat

Saturday, October 17, 2020
9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Grades 1-6

Carol Joy Holling Camp

Our Explore! Day Retreats for elementary students are a chance for young campers to get out and enjoy camp in one compact and fun day. If your child is missing camp or has never been to camp, Explore! gives them the perfect opportunity to experience a day of adventure and faith building out at CJH Camp. In addition to Bible study and worship, we will be experiencing many favorite camp activities together as we share in fun and fellowship.


Every Explore! Day Retreat is different, so first-time and long-time participants can both join in the fun as we focus on environmental education, fellowship, and faith!


All campers and staff will be required to wear a mask, and physical distancing will be practiced whenever possible. Villages will be groups of 12 or fewer campers.
