Benefit Auction raises record amount for Kids 2 Camp Fund!

Silent Auction 2015After a summer of warm, dry weather in Western Washington, it didn’t seem fair that a sudden change brought rain and gusty winds to Warm Beach Camp on August 29, the day of the Camp’s annual Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction. Despite the weather, a crowd of people showed up for the event, and at the end of the day, the auction raised $111,900 for the Kids 2 Camp Scholarship fund, the most ever raised from the auction!

This will make it possible for a lot of kids to go to camp who would not have been able to without all of the generous donors and participants at this event!

By the end of this year, more than $177,000 will have been given out in scholarships, helping bring more than 1,625 campers to WBC. We are committed to turning no child away from camp if the reason they can’t attend is financial. But, it requires funds for scholarships to make this possible. Each year, many people help provide the financial resources so this can happen.

We are very grateful to each of our auction donors who gave items to be placed in the auctions. We also want to thank all of the very generous bidders who came to the event and bought all those items.

More than the money raised, the success of this event is measured in the changed lives of the kids who will get to go to camp. Mark your calendar now for the seventeenth annual Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction on Saturday, August 27, 2016.

Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:10 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.10.10.NLT The writer of the book of Romans is sharing words from his heart. He wants everyone to understand the way to be made right with God. He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
