Alexander Cook, Black Diamond Intern

Hello! My name is Alexander and I am proud to be a part of the Black Diamond Camp Internship program!

I found myself at Camp back in 2019 as a summer staffer, it was then I got to meet all the wonderful staff and experience the beautiful campus. I served two more summers after my first, and now I find myself in the internship program!

Camp has really become a large part of my life, something the former me would never have expected. If there’s one thing I’ve learned while working at Black Diamond it’s God is in control and only He really knows the plan! I never planned to stay at Camp this long, but I’m glad I have. I’m blessed to be able to be a part of this ministry and its wonderful community, and I’m grateful that this is where God put me.

For me as a person it’s hard to really “give up” when it comes to plans and the future. It took me a LONG time to finally relax and let God be in control, but at the end of the day, only He can truly give us what we need! This mindset isn’t always easy, but sometimes we all need to step back, take a deep breath, and remember that God has us – always. Even God rested on the seventh day!

It is daily. It is beyond what we could see or ...

Grateful for Our Faithful Volunteers

I have worked at Warm Beach Camp for many years. Only recently did I begin working with volunteers in a broader context while serving as the Interim Volunteer Coordinator. What an encouragement to all the staff to see how faithfully the volunteers want to serve. Several volunteers help us for many hours each week. So much of what they do is critical to the ministry. During The Lights of Christmas, we have volunteers that fall into the age category of “the golden years” ...

God’s Enduring Love

As we transition from 2021 to 2022 there is a profound truth that has become our focus for 2022:  God’s Enduring Love. We just finished the 24th season of The Lights of Christmas, the 2nd year of a drive-thru format. We shared and experienced God’s enduring love. The story of Jesus coming to save us, God coming to be with us, was clearly evident through, and word. We are grateful for all those who chose to take this in. As we look ...
