A Summer of Transformation

This summer, Black Diamond Camp hosted 739 Day Campers. Not only did these kids participate in activities like ziplining, swimming, climbing walls, and archery tag, they also experienced God’s Creation and life-changing messages from God’s Word.  

Each day, kids arrived with their own joys and excitement and their own set of worries and fears. One of those campers was Conner. Conner was at Camp most of the summer and usually had a go-with-the-flow attitude, but something was just off one particular week. He screamed at people, ran away, was uninvolved in activities, and just wasn’t happy.  

Drew, a Black Diamond counselor, took some time to sit down with Conner and listen. “Connor shared with me that he does not get heard at home and was happy that I took the time to listen to what he had to say,” Drew explained. “From there, he was back to being the happy Conner that everyone knew. It was cool seeing the transformation from an angry little dude to a happy, content, little person – all because of a simple act of just listening.” 

This summer was full of transformations big and small at Black Diamond Camp. Over 40 campers came to know Christ, and over 13 baptisms  were performed. Thank you for being a part of the life-changing work at Black Diamond Camp and Warm Beach Camp Ministries.

Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. 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 ...
