A Letter from the Chair

January 12, 2022 | Carmen Holmes

Hello, Okema community!

I am sure most of you know me, but if not, I would like to introduce myself: I am Carmen Holmes—the new chair of the Okema Society for Christian Development. I am writing to share some exciting news for Camp Okema going into the 2022 season!

We started the new season by welcoming a new board member: Jason Smith. We are excited to have his knowledge and expertise added to our board. If you are interested in helping out the board with any of our initiatives, I encourage you to visit our website and contact the board member whose role interests you!

What should you be looking forward to during these dreary, cold, and continued unprecedented times? Keep your eyes locked on our Facebook and Instagram pages for Fundraising events like our Little Caesars Pizza Sale, Virtual Bottle Drive, and our Spring Youth Retreat (pandemic allowing)! 

Though we cannot give too many details, there is also a potential fundraiser for the Quinlyn Foundation in the works in tandem with the Broadway Theater coming this Spring!

If you are interested in getting more involved with Camp Okema, reach out! We love the support of our community near or far! You can reach us via email: [email protected]—or through any of our social media pages. 

I look forward to seeing what we can do as a community this Winter and Spring, and I will see you all this summer!

Carmen Holmes - Chair of the Camp Okema Board
