See & read about what is going on in the Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center community

A Decade of Restoration

Early each August for the past 10 years, youth musicians have convened at Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for renewal through a week of choral singing, music theory studies, rekindling friendships, and classic summer camp activities.

Throughout this decade, a community of like-minded, musical artists has developed – bringing together teens in grades 6-12. Along with college counselor-mentors and professional musician leaders from all over the United States and even occasionally abroad. The 2019 NW Choir Camps – Honor Choir Summer Camp saw counselors returning from as far away as Alabama, Hawaii, Oregon, and Texas, all having started out as campers themselves. Over 300 youth participated over the past 10 years.

Warm Beach is the perfect backdrop for the artistry and music making of this unique group of youth. Campers return year after year because Warm Beach provides generous space and inspiring landscapes – along with quality, comfortable, modern, and clean facilities. Friendly and professional Warm Beach staff make the Choir Camp staff’s work effortless.

Return attendees find their week at choir camp to be a time of renewal through music and spending quality time with friends. It has become a sort of “vacation” from the hectic busyness, challenges, and demands of our fast-paced lives. Many singers say that Choir Camp is the highlight of their entire year.

NW Choir Camps – Honor Choir Summer Camp is an outreach project of Spectrum Choral Academy, which serves youth locally in the Key Peninsula/Gig Harbor area year round. Select camp singers have the opportunity to participate in Music & Cultural Tours every 2 years. Past tours include 2016 to Italy and 2018 to England & Scotland. In March 2020 they will travel to New York City to perform at Carnegie Hall, visiting the most popular monuments, museums, and Broadway shows.

The importance of music in a young person’s life is unquantifiable. Music has the power to change and renew a person, which in turn can change and renew a society. Warm Beach has been the perfect partner for NW Choir Camps to help make this a reality.

The Honor Choir Summer Camp is open to all experienced musicians entering grades 6-12 the following fall. For more information about NW Choir Camps, visit: or call Artistic Director, Stephanie Charbonneau at 360-271-8086. You can also view photos from past camps on Facebook.

Please Help People Reconcile with God

And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 2 Corinthians 5:18 NLT The cultural conversation today about religion is surrounded with words of proselytize, solicit, convert, and indoctrinate. These words are spoken as if religion is just selling and convincing people to simply choose “my religion.” It is tempting to play this ...

5 Ways to Grow Leadership Potential

The subject of leadership fascinates, allures, and sometime repels us in many ways. Some aspire to become great leaders, whatever “great” means. Others shun leadership for all of the pitfalls and heartache toxic leadership may inflict. For all of the research and experienced opinion out there on the subject, it remains fascinatingly complex and simple all at the same time. Having served in Christian Camps and Conference Centers for over 30 years, I have seen my share of young people ...

An Experience to Remember

The elderly gentlemen carefully took out his debit card as his date stared at him with excitement and joy. “You know, we’ve lived in the area a long time but have never been here before. Where should we go first?” As I took out a map, and explained some of the festival highlights, the woman’s eyes began to widen with anticipation. “Thank you so much. Have a great night and a very Merry Christmas!” I exclaimed as the couple folded ...
