5 Hidden Gems of Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center

It’s no secret that Warm Beach Camp is bursting with beautiful scenery, but some areas of the Camp’s grounds are more visited than others.  We want to share the more beautiful and less known areas of the grounds so everyone can enjoy all the amazing beauty of Camp! 

#1 – The Serenity Circle

Nestled between the RV/tent sites and the main conference center grounds, this lush loop trail is home to a small fire circle, a small stream fed bog, and loads of towering trees! 

#2 – The Canyon

Home to many of the challenge course high and low elements, The Canyon is an intricate trail system placed between two deep ravines which give the area its name. With greenery all around, it’s easy to feel like you’re out in the wilderness while just being a short walk away from the main conference center grounds in this breathtaking area. 

#3 – The Log

This massive driftwood log came to rest at the end of the dike many years ago. You can see that hundreds of people have ventured out to the root ball over the years. It’s an incredible site to behold itself, and is unrivaled for stargazing. 

#4 – The Beach

Yes, Warm Beach Camp is in fact home to a small amount of sand and driftwood at the farthest southwest point of the property! This small, secluded area is the best place to hang a hammock, read a book, and enjoy the classic sunset over Camano Island. 

#5 – The Prayer Chapel

The Prayer Chapel is right off the southwest edge of Cedar Lodge. It’s an unmatched place for reflection, rest, and taking in the beauty of creation. Make sure to leave a prayer request in the drop box during your visit, the staff love to pray over what guests leave behind!

Everywhere

Everywhere – from east to west – praise the name of the Lord. Psalms 113:2 There is a lot of talk today about what unites and divides us as people. From families to the massive global community, we don’t like division, yet we experience it. We like unity and community. It is a gift that brings joy, delight, and well-being to everyone within its reach everywhere. As a follower of Jesus Christ, the great unifier within families, communities, nations, and ...

This is Why We’re Here

On this particular Friday, twelve pairs of eyes looked down at Onyx and I from the arena grandstands. As I sat on Onyx’s sturdy frame, I looked back at the twelve campers. My mind flashed to Monday, the first day of camp. There was one camper who had been scared to get on her horse. However, after some reassurance and coaxing she had said she would try to ride. “I am so proud of you for pushing through your fear! ...
