People thrive in our peaceful, beautiful and secluded surroundings, and are challenged and encouraged in their relationship with God. Our mission at Camp Holsby is simple – to introduce people to the living and indwelling Savior – Jesus Christ. Through our Bible teaching, enjoying our activities or taking the time to relax and be refreshed, people are changed by a personal encounter with Jesus.
