Carol Joy Holling Camp
As a special friend of camp, we invite you to join us for Friends Camp! This is your chance to take a sneak peek at our Summer Ministry Team and campers living out their faith in these amazing spaces. You’ll reconnect with old friends and make some new ones, too.
Carol Joy Holling Camp, Swanson Retreat Center
Overnight accommodations are provided at the Swanson Retreat Center.
Rooms with two queens or one king are available.
We’ll treat you to a social hour in historical downtown Ashland and a delicious dinner back at camp, prepared by our talented chef, Max Harris.
You’ll experience some fun, camp-inspired activities including sno kones, s’mores around the firepit, and breakfast with the campers. On Friday, you’ll join the campers and their families for closing worship where you’ll hear and see all the fun they had during the week.
We want to be prepared for you, so please RSVP by Wednesday, May 31.
