Blessings Big and Small

To see Warm Beach Camp empty at a time of year when it would normally be flooded with guests and campers is an odd sight. The past four months at the Camp have been challenging to say the least. Camp staff have made drastic adjustments at work to adapt to government requirements and the lack of revenue the Camp is experiencing. But, in all of this we have seen God’s blessing and provision every day.

The blessings come in big and small packages: Two semi-trucks full of donated furniture and household goods to help beautify the Camp, boxes of produce for staff, funds from the Paycheck Protection Program to cover payroll and utilities for two months, and the installation of new fiber-optic WiFi. In addition, after years of searching, the Camp was able to hire a Head Chef. Although we cannot gather for daily staff meetings, it is a blessing to stay connected by sharing email devotions and other encouraging words.

During this season, opening the Camp mail has been a parade of blessing after unexpected blessing. Donors giving above and beyond their regular giving, people giving who have not given for years, donations so large or sacrificial all you can do is cry. Our volunteers continue to bless us by deep cleaning, repair and beautification projects that could not be accomplished with a full campus. Because of their contribution, when guests return, the facilities and grounds will look better than ever.

Warm Beach Camp is grateful for the ways our donors and community members have contributed to the ministry and the way God has been blessing us. As the Camp perseveres through these challenging times, we pray for the Lord’s blessings. Our thanks are endless, and our prayers are continuous.

The Hope That Christmas Brings

Despite the COVID pandemic The Lights of Christmas presents: “A Drive-Thru Christmas” is shaping up to be one of the most successful Christmas seasons Warm Beach Camp has ever seen. Tickets are selling out, donuts are flying off the shelves, and the retail tent is running to keep up with the demand. One Saturday night a volunteer named Ron was helping a guest at the end of the event. A man in his 60s pulled in and began asking Ron ...

Horses Bring Hope

Warm Beach Horsemanship is one of the few programs at Camp that can follow CDC guidelines and remain open, providing a place of hope and healing during these challenging times. Due to the restrictions caused by COVID-19 many people’s lives have been thrown into turmoil. Things we once took for granted have been stripped away from us, however amidst this turmoil there is HOPE…    Those missing physical touch can wrap their arms around a horse and feel the comfort that comes from an embrace. Words cannot express the joy and healing ...
