We are excited to announce that REGISTRATION IS NOW OPENfor Hollis Crossings 2021. 

Last year variables outside our control, forced us to cancel both sessions of Hollis Crossings.  Day Camp is our favorite time of the year.   
We missed the belly laughs, friendships made, faith shared...gaga ball games played...all of it! 
We love it, and know your kids do too.   We are so excited it will be back in 2021.

 Most of our campers arrive only knowing the kids they shared a car with, but by the end of the week new friendships have been forged. Campers come from various locations and socioeconomic backgrounds but through play, worship, and shared experience, the differences melt away and only similarities remain.   Play and laughter is a universal language.  Hollis Crossings is a week of hope, and hope is what we will focus on this summer 

   In the meantime, bring your kids and hike our trails, or plan a family camp out.
Our trails and facilities are open and available for use by families, individuals and small groups. 
Contact us to make your reservation.

Your little campers can be your guide. They know the way.

SESSION #1: JULY 19-22 | SESSION #2: JULY 26-29

Session 1: July 19-22  | Session 2: July 26-29

Why is Hollis Crossings Unique?

I like this model…can my church have our VBS out here? 
Congregations: Congregations have used the Day Camp model for their vacation bible school program,
​sometimes offering programs for younger children back at their church. Please call the Hollis office 913.441.0451
if you want more information about how your church can use this exciting resource.
