A Summer of Breakthroughs

Over the past several weeks of Camp ministry, many Campers have made decisions for Christ through Warm Beach Camp Ministries. In just one week of Horsemanship Camp, nine out of 12 Campers made commitments to Christ. At Black Diamond, more than 20 kids made first-time decisions at Day Camp and Group Camps in one week.   

Somehow the pandemic has created an environment at Camp, unlike any other year. For lots of kids, it’s the best week they’ve had in two years. Andrew Hurst, Director of Youth Ministries at Black Dimond, said, “kids are more open to the idea of meeting new people, and Camp allows them to drop their barriers and enjoy life. In addition, parents are reporting that their kids don’t care what it takes to get to Camp this year – they will do it! 

Amidst the chaos of the world, everyone is more aware of the need for God when they experience Camp. A counselor from a guest group shared, “There were many powerful breakthroughs this week, particularly with kids being able to share what’s really going on in their lives. There were deep conversations and soul issues brought into the open that have been hidden too long.” 

Many Campers have never had God’s love tangibly demonstrated to them, and they are responding to the acceptance, love, and support they can see and feel at Camp. Ginger Reitz, Assistant Horsemanship Director at Warm Beach Camp, commented, “Every week, we have kids giving their hearts to Christ!” Ginger went on to explain that Campers are not only excited about being Campers that want to return to be Wranglers in Training.  

God is demonstrating himself through the many facets of Warm Beach Ministries this summer. We are giving him thanks for all the crazy ways God is showing up and bringing joy, transformation, and hope to Campers who attended.
