Left to right: Benny Kruger, Larry Hagglund, Bob GravesCascadian Lodge was built in 1962 and has housed approximately 136,000 guests to date. Since its original construction, the facility has seen few upgrades or renovations. Two years ago Warm Beach started raising money for an interior make-over. Forty-six donors have contributed to the renovation project that will upgrade flooring, doors, furniture, décor, improve heating sources, lighting and outlets, and address needed repairs. Meeting room upgrades already completed include new carpet and gas stove, and improvements to come are new lighting and décor. Room renovations began in early January and are expected to be completed by June 2018.

It only seems appropriate that volunteers are part of the renovation process since it was also volunteers who built the facility 56 years ago.

Volunteerism has been, and continues to be, a sustaining factor in the ministry of Warm Beach Camp.
