Always Improving

By “keeping the path clear to the cross,” lives can change and, in turn, communities can be transformed through the programs at Warm Beach Camp. One key element to all of this is to have well-maintained and beautiful grounds and facilities that are not a hindrance or distraction from the good people experience at Camp.

Two major projects were completed in 2019. The remodeling of Cascadian Lodge and the repaving of Cedar Lodge loop. These significantly improve the quality of experience of Camp. In addition, Glacier and Whistler Lodges received new sinks and counters in their lobbies. The Program Center auditorium interior was painted and acoustic treatment was added to the stage. A new privacy fence was added to the entrance of Camp. Two houses were painted, and new windows were installed in several more. Many other needed, but less visible, improvements were also made.

In 2020, two major project areas will be the Chinook Village Cabins and Snohomish County required surface water drainage improvements across from the main entrance of Camp. Numerous small projects such as painting, roofing, and flooring will be done as well. Landscaping improvements will unfold as usual. The Program Center courtyard will also be improved.

The continuous improvements to the ground and facilities add value to the guest experience and sustain the effectiveness of the ministry over the years to come. We are grateful for the generous donations and willing hands that make these possible. Together we are keeping the path clear to the cross.

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 ...
