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.

Just like the Father 

Photo by Ron Lach from Pexels You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.  Luke 6:36 NLT  https://bible.com/bible/116/luk.6.36.NLT  “You are just like your father” or “You are just like your mother” are phrases describing similarities for the better or worse with those who have raised us.    When Jesus says “ just as your Father in Heaven is, so we should be” it is a big statement to receive.  As a Father of 9 children, I know that my contribution to their lives is mixed, because I have done some really good things while also ...

The Lights of Christmas: A Community Event

Our community is a huge part of who we are as The Lights of Christmas. Our staff and volunteers help put the event together, local businesses help with promotion, donors support the big picture, and the people attend the event with their friends and family. Over the last year, we worked to create bigger and brighter displays and I am excited for what we are accomplishing together. Volunteers were here all summer working on new displays like Icicle Falls, The ...
