A powerful way to rebuild trust

WBHorsemanship hugging s 350pxThere is something powerful when a child connects with a horse. It has been said that horses love us and bear our burdens unconditionally. This is the heart of Warm Beach Camp’s equestrian connection. For children who have had relational trust broken in their lives, a connection with a horse is a powerful way to rebuild trust and open a child’s heart to the possibilities of being loved and accepted.

The Warm Beach Horsemanship program offers a variety of equestrian classes and camps. For those who want to work on a team and participate in world class competition, the equestrian vaulting team offers great opportunities for local and global competition. The hall mark of the Horsemanship program are the summer week-long residential horse and vaulting camps. Relationship, skill, work ethic, competition, and a greater awareness of God and His love are the key outcomes experienced in the equestrian ministry. Lisa Tremain, Horsemanship Director, is leading a very committed and talented team of people who have a strong desire to connect people with Jesus Christ.

She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
