The Internship Program offers a flexible program structure that will allow interns to contribute to the mission of the organization while growing into their potential.

Through an internship, you will immerse yourself in an experience that blends spiritual formation and practical work skills. Gain practical experience while growing your own leadership capacity and vision for the future to which God is calling you.

Intern Goals

  • Strengthen your spiritual foundation
  • Develop a clear sense of identity and life purpose
  • Cultivate Christ-like character
  • Enhance communication and relational skills
  • Grow in leadership capacity
  • Improve work-related skills via practical experience

The Internship Program allows you to concentrate in a particular area of ministry such as Programming, Recreation, or Marketing. In addition to time spent in an area of concentration, the core of the program involves all of the interns in common learning experiences. Read more: Areas of Concentration

Internships last twelve months beginning in September and going through August of the following year. The application deadline is July 1. Some exceptions may be granted. Many interns choose to apply also for summer staff during the summer prior to the internship year.

Positively contribute to the ministry of Warm Beach Camp

Christian Camping integrates spirituality and daily life in the context of new experiences and environments. The retreat or camp world creates for the guests a new framework to hear and respond to God's voice, to build healthy relationships with one another, and strengthen personal character.

By the same token, internships integrate education, spiritual formation, and practical work skills. Within the context of Christian Camping, interns experience the unique blend of organizational life and Christian community while keeping the path clear to the cross for the guests. Internships provide a holistic learning experience for the participant as well as fresh, helpful hands for assisting with camp work.

The Internship Program focuses on developing the whole person in Christ through spiritual formation, character development, relational skills, leadership capacity, and work-related talents. In addition, by creating a learning focus in everything we do, our ministry edge will sharpen and the mission-fulfillment will only increase.

Regardless of where God leads a Warm Beach Camp Intern to go in the future, our hope is that their experience here will have life-long impact.

Kids 2 Camp

When a life is touched by love the result is transformation.

kids2camp  image

A young man with a troubled background turns his life around and is now reaching his peers for Christ - and it all began at Camp.

A mother discovers hope - and it all began at Camp where her child attends through the generosity of others.

Camp is a place where a kid can leave behind the cares, distractions, and problems of everyday life and embrace a new beginning. The love of God becomes more real at Camp, lived out through the lives of caring staff.

The Kids 2 Camp scholarship fund strengthens youth ministry and helps needy kids come to Camp. In partnership with over 40 churches and agencies, Warm Beach Camp draws more than 400 kids a year to Camp who would otherwise be left out. Generous donors make Camp experience possible – and life changes here.

Giving kids the time of their lives can change their futures. Open your heart to a child and send them to Camp!

Partner with us by joining the $Dollar a Day Campaign and give $30 a month to make sure no one is left out of a chance to have their heart touched at Camp.

One time gifts of $50, $100, $500 or whatever you can give are also welcomed.

Every year the opportunity continues to grow. Our goal is to raise $250,000 annually to strengthen youth ministry and help needy kids come to Camp.

Our vision is to go where God is working mightily to bring people into His kingdom, disciple them and send them out to bless and transform the world through meaningful partnerships with national leaders.

Equestrian Vaulting

You'll be surprised at what you can do!

Warm Beach Horse Camps have offered vaulting as a part of the camp experience for almost twenty years. Vaulting promotes balance, confidence and a oneness with the horse. Many students have taken vaulting lessons as a means of improving their riding skills. Others find it a challenging and unique sport in itself.

The sport of vaulting combines dance and gymnastics performed on the back of a moving horse. Rooted in horsemanship training of ancient Greece, Vaulting is very popular in Europe and is even the national youth sport of Germany. Over the last three decades, through the efforts of the American Vaulting Association and others, Vaulting has increased in popularity in the US.

The Vaulting Program provides weekly lessons, opportunities for exhibition performances, and a chance for selection on to the competition team. Warm Beach Vaulters promote teamwork, personal responsibility, and caring for others in Jesus’ name alongside the development of the physical talents of the sport. Our goal is to help every vaulter experience success while keeping the path clear to the cross!

History

Before the turn of the century, Free Methodists were already strong believers in camping. Their early camp meetings were usually ten days or longer, centering on revival meetings held in large tent "tabernacles."

For over 50 years, Free Methodists in the Pacific Northwest enjoyed a variety of rustic campgrounds operated by the Washington Conference, located in sites such as Burlington and Tacoma, as well as Sunnyside and other central Washington locations.

A dream was born to have a modern Christian camp and conference center in the Pacific Northwest to keep pace with the expanding ministry of Christian camping. After a region-wide search, attention focused on three adjacent parcels of land located 20 miles north of Everett, Washington, overlooking Port Susan Bay.

On January 11, 1956, forty people gathered to plod through the 180 acres of land, which was home to a farm, an old saw mill, and acres of thick forest. The committee met later that day at a cafe in Marysville and voted to purchase the land. During the next year a master plan was developed, which called for a main conference grounds and two satellite youth camps.

By the spring of 1957 construction was underway on Cedar Lodge (then called the Dining Hall) and the Olympic View Cabins (now Mountain Cabins and Mini-Lodges). Dozens of volunteer work crews spent weekends and holidays working on these construction projects. The striking fir log beams in Cedar Lodge were painstakingly logged, hand-peeled and oiled as a part of this process.

By the summer of 1959, the first "pioneer" campers arrived at the developing campsite. With parts of Cedar Lodge still in skeleton form, a determined volunteer staff cooked, cleaned and counseled for two Christian Youth Crusader (CYC) youth camps. One year later, the first Free Methodist Family Camp and Annual Conference was held at the new Conference Center.

During the next seven years, extensive construction took place at Warm Beach, and at one point, twenty-seven buildings were under construction at the same time. In more recent years, Olympic View Lodge, Glacier Mini-Lodge, The Pines and Whistler Mini-Lodge have been added.

Today, more than 350 events are held on the grounds each year, with nearly 100,000 people enjoying the beauty and unique setting of Warm Beach Christian Camps and Conference Center.
