A wonderful group of young people!

SC Interscession 300A few weeks ago, a group of high school students from Seattle Christian Schools came to Warm Beach Camp as part of their school’s InterSCession program. This program provides the opportunity for students to have a week-long creative learning experience, and gives both teachers and students opportunities to pursue specialized subjects and skills. Students select from a wide variety of optional learning experiences that can be either academic or service and short-term ministry related. One of those options was to spend a week at Warm Beach Camp, volunteering on projects.

Nineteen students and their adult chaperones spent a week here helping with several projects that had to be done to meet requirements of the Camp’s Conditional Use Permit (CUP). Tree planting, blackberry and ivy removal probably don’t make it to the top of most peoples’ “fun list,” but over the course of several days, these students made huge progress on these important projects. Altogether, they gave over 170 hours of volunteer service at Warm Beach Camp.

Staff member Julie Land, who supervised the group said, “It’s not very common for us to get a volunteer group for several days in a row. It was good to get to know them and get our hands dirty. We had a great time!” It was wonderful to have such a great group of young people come and help out!

Volunteer groups like Seattle Christian play an important part in the ministry of Warm Beach Camp. Last year, over 25 groups participated in volunteer work, doing everything from raking leaves, to greeting guests during The Lights of Christmas.
