Planning A Holiday Gathering? We can make it easy for you!

Updated: Nov 17, 2023

The holidays can be the “most wonderful time of the year,” and at the same time be

incredibly stress-inducing!

One highlight is gathering with those we love to give thanks for all our blessings and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

However, high expectations, long “to-do” lists, and varying other commitments that need to be juggled can make it difficult to plan a time to gather to celebrate as a family.

Dr. Robert Ritzema with suggests that families plan early and communicate very clearly, especially regarding anything that you may be changing that your family has experienced in prior years. He also recommends that being flexible and lowering expectations will increase the chances of being satisfied with the final plan.

Whether you are planning your gathering in a family member’s home or traveling to a vacation spot, the time to plan is now.

If you are looking for something new to try, we suggest you call to see if we might have the right opportunity for you at Carol Joy Holling Camp, Conference & Retreat Center. We currently host a range of family, corporate, and private events.

Our campus offers a variety of spaces with a variety of dining options. Whether you prefer to

share a full meal prepared by our Chef and kitchen team or to provide your own meal, we have the space and hospitality to make planning your holiday party easier.

We would be excited to become your go-to location for your holiday gatherings in 2023!

If you would like to explore the varied options and dates that are still available, contact Dana

Jahn, our Manager of Events at or 402-944-2544.
