Because Life Changes Here.

Kids2camp benefit auction 858Looking around the grounds, you can see it; praying for the campers, you can feel it. Life changes here. Sometimes lives change as a result of simply arriving at Warm Beach Camp. For some families, sending their kids to camp is financially and logistically impossible, but impossible situations are where God does His best work.

A mom and her teenagers living in a car for the past year; a grandmother desperate to rescue her granddaughter out of a dangerous living environment; single parents working low wage jobs; parents who have lost their jobs; etc.—these are real stories about real people who call the Registration Department at Warm Beach Camp, looking for help. With our Kids 2 Camp Scholarship program, we are able to bless the children of these families with a week at camp where they can be safe and cared for, and just be kids.

In addition to individual families, Warm Beach Camp partners with churches and organizations to bring children to camp. Our ministry partners bring children of incarcerated parents, children of migrant farm workers, children of immigrant families from African countries, and children of the homeless or those in transitional housing. This summer, Warm Beach Camp also partnered with churches from the Oso/Darrington area to bring nearly 30 kids affected by the mudslide to camp.

Because of generous and loving donors, the Kids 2 Camp Scholarship Program at Warm Beach Camp provides a way for these kids to come to a week of summer camp. Children from all types of difficult situations come and experience loving counselors, good food, fun games, swimming, chapel times, and more. During a week at camp, God has an opportunity to speak to their hearts. What happens as a result? Lives are touched by love and transformed.

Together, we are the body of Christ. We are His hands, His feet, and His heart. The work done at Warm Beach Camp begins long before our guests set foot on the grounds. Our faithful prayer partners, generous donors, and volunteers pour out their hearts and resources all year long to make this ministry possible. Thank you!

If you would like to be a part of the incredible work God is doing at Warm Beach Camp, through prayer, financial giving, or volunteering your time, please go to our Giving section. And remember — life changes here.

Exploring your worth in Christ

“For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hands and says to you, ‘do not fear, I will help you.'" Isaiah 41:13 What I do defines who I am. The choices I make define my value – for better or for worse. Are those things true? There are countless times in my life where I believed that what I did defined who I am. One poignant example occurred when I was 14 years old. I ...

A Heartwarming and Joyous Plan!

When a woman from a senior community quilter’s group came to Warm Beach Camp, she was not expecting to have a bond with a group of students attending a high school retreat. However, where God is at work, connections can be found in the unlikeliest of places. At mealtimes, the woman and her quilter friends would go to the dining room and share the space with a group of teenagers and their teachers. Through conversation over a delicious meal, it ...
