All we can say is, “WOW!”

After a little rain to cool the runners off, the summer sun peaked out from behind the clouds. The hustle and bustle from attendees entering the auction tent filled the room with excitement and joy. The day was packed with activities and fun. We were all excited to raise money for the many kids wanting to go to camp.

In fact, 80 people showed up in the rain that morning to participate in the Kids 2 Camp Benefit Run. There were runners of all ages including a cross-country team who were here for a weekend retreat, and families who were running together.

Then, even more people arrived for the Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction. With nearly 300 items in the Silent and Live Auctions, there were lots of treasures for the bidders to bid on. The Silent Auction items went quickly, and we took a short break for lunch.

The anticipation grew as the auctioneer took the stage for the Live Auction. It was obvious by the bidding, that everyone wanted to help support Warm Beach Camp and the Kids 2 Camp Scholarship Fund! By the end of the day, more than $235,000 was raised, the most money ever raised from this event! All we can say is, “Wow!” and “Thank You!”

We want to give thanks to everyone who participated: the enthusiastic runners, the generous donors and bidders, and our cheerful volunteers.

The success of this event will bring kids a life changing experience at camp. We are projecting more than $265,000 worth of scholarships will be given this year, bringing more than 1,530 campers to Warm Beach Camp!

Do you want to join the fun? Next year’s Kids 2 Camp Benefit Day will be held on Saturday, August 24, 2019. Mark your calendars!

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 ...
