Project Updates - September 2016

Here is the latest news on the Camp’s current projects:

  • The refurbishment project in Cedar Lodge Chapel is nearing completion. The new snack bar has been completed. New chairs have been ordered. Work still in progress includes the new audio/visual systems, new lighting, and ceiling paint. This is the third and final project of the Embracing the Vision Campaign that provided funding for the new restrooms and the remodel work in the kitchen. We are grateful for the many people who gave through the Campaign to make all this work possible.

  • A new fireplace insert has been installed in Cascadian lobby. This is part of the renovation project to revitalize Cascadian Lodge. Fundraising through a room memorialization program is underway. This will allow us to significantly update the sleeping rooms in this lodge. Currently, 15 rooms have been memorialized, leaving 15 more to be underwritten. If you would like information about memorializing a room, please contact Nancy Nelson at the Camp.

  • Stables Project 2016New fireplace inserts have also been installed in both of the Olympic View Lodge meeting rooms. These provide a nice ambience and warmth to the rooms.

  • A lot of work has been done at the Stables this summer, and it continues into the fall. The new storage shed and corrals at the Stables are near completion, allowing for improved vaulting tack and horse feed storage, and improved winter horse feeding. A large section of gutters are being repaired or added to help with mud control in the rainy times of the year. New footing, a mix of sand and sawdust, has been added to the indoor riding arena to improve safety for the vaulters, and help protect the horses’ joints. Much of this work has been done by volunteers. Thank you, volunteers!

  • Work is starting on a project to add more parking spaces across Marine Drive for The Lights of Christmas. This will be the 20th year of The Lights, and it continues to grow each year. The Camp is working hard to keep up with an ever-increasing need for parking spaces for this event. It is wonderful that this event is reaching out to so many people! We want to be ready to serve those who come.

Project Updates - July 2016

Here is the latest news on the Camp’s current projects:

  • Chapel Project Update716Work continues on the refurbishment project in Cedar Lodge Chapel. New windows and exterior doors have been installed, and the interior walls have been refinished. The last two family restrooms are now finished. Work still in progress includes the new audio/visual systems, new chairs, a snack counter, and possibly lighting and ceiling paint. This is the final project of the Embracing the Vision Campaign that provided funding for the new restrooms on the main floor of Cedar Lodge, and the remodel work in the kitchen and north end of the basement. We are grateful for the many people who gave through the Campaign to make this all possible.

  • New carpet has been installed in Cascadian Lobby and the hallways. You will have to take a peek next time you are on the grounds! Fundraising through a room memorialization program has begun that will allow us to refurbish the sleeping rooms in this lodge as well.

  • Volunteers have finished the painting project at the Stables. Over the last two years, all of the buildings at the Stables, along with Bayview Ranch House, have been repainted. They look really nice with their fresh new paint. Thank you, volunteers!

  • The new wider sidewalk is in that goes from the Senior Community to Maple Center. This project replaced the old four-foot sidewalk with a new ten-foot-wide one, improving safety and accommodating more pedestrian traffic.

  • The new outdoor sound system in the Amphitheater has been installed and is now fully operational. This is a huge improvement, allowing a greater range of programming to occur outside, year-round. Funding for this project came from two long-time guest groups, individuals, and Warm Beach Camp.

  • A new pedestrian entry for The Lights of Christmas near the front entrance is complete. This will direct the people parking across Marine Drive into the RV area where they will have a safer, more direct route to the ticket gates than has been possible in the past.

  • New storage shed and corrals at the Stables are being installed. This allows for improved vaulting tack storage and improvements to winter horse feeding.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with any projects, whether you have a few hours or a few days, call Jessica Wilson at (360) 312-3417 or you can contact her by email.
